We just got back from J's baptism. We are proud of this great little boy, the best giver of the best hugs. He even asked me when we got there, "Did you cut new bangs? And is that a new dress?? It's like a whole new you!"
It was high time for togetherness, and we loved our trip.
|The man of the hour|
|Jude was in no short supply of attention and new toys. Heaven. Of course he really started warming up to everyone about the time we had to go; I wish we lived closer!|
|"All I need is milk and Aunt E."|
|As the sun eased off, we all went to the park. Jude and I have done the swings numerous times, and he's clocked a fair amount of time in the sand, but get ready for his first time on the slide.|
|He's found his passion and path in life. Full time slider.|
|Pure joy. This picture fills my heart with unending, pure joy.|
|Such a messy, slimy, happy kid!|
|Busted! Self-portrait with a bit of Tylenol slashed on the side of the mouth for some zip (he had a small fever).|
|And now we get back into our routine this fine Monday, starting with a tour of the family room and kitchen, bunny ears placed on one's own head.|
