Mouse Ears & Open Arms

Julie and her crew are wearing their mouse ears this week and playing with Mickey. I keep getting texts from her and a few phone calls reporting on their activities. I think they are having a ball! Lots of family memories will be made for them this week. Much deserved.

He reached for me with a smile on his face. Be still my heart!

Yes, he did. When I picked him up today he was in Ms. Maribeth's arms and saw me, smiled and then reached out for me. I was in awe. I looked at Ms. Maribeth and said "Is he reaching for me?!" and she said, "Yes!" I think if my smile was any larger it would have been a crime. She cheered for him and told him what a big boy he was. He just put his open mouth all over my nose and laughed. He is such a funny boy. He is definitely happy to be alive and I love that. He also knows that his Mama is his ticket!! ha.

I love how the Lord puts things into perspective after a long work day and all is immediately right with my world when I see my sweet Henry Patton. I can't wait until he reaches for his Daddy. Baby Daddy was so excited when I called him from the car, but I think he would like to also be on the receiving end of such sweetness.

What fun we are ALL having this week!

You tell us some of the most heart warming stories. There have been times I have shed a tear. He is the most lucky baby to have such a loving mommy and daddy.
