I sit here reflecting on the last four years. Four years being a mother. They have certainly changed me forever.
Cormac is my sensitive soul, in-tune to all my emotions, and the first to try to put things in perspective for me. If I am in a bad mood and grumbling around, he says quietly, "Be calm, mama. It is okay." If I am sick he says, "You can have one of my stuffed animals to snuggle with." He is a master at bringing me out of a funk. But he himself is quite the emotional creature, too! Joy, anger, sadness, and laughter burst out of him like firecrackers.
|yes, he looks like his dada. but yes, he also looks like his mama...|
|does your child enjoy your wearing your accessories, too? I think it is normal. :)|
He also loves guns and "shooting." This is not my favorite. I don't like guns really - at all. I try not to be a total spaz about it, knowing it is perfectly normal for a little boy to enjoy toy guns. Secretly, though, I am hoping he grows out of it.
|my biggest fan|
|definitely a climber!|
|always a stick to find and claim as his own.|
|he is really easy to make laugh and get to participate in general silliness.|
|his first pre-k christmas program went, um, okay. this bing-crosby inspired look made his mama happy, anyway!|
|children's museum fun.|
|the kid loves puppets and puppet shows.|
|the boy version of doc mcstuffins|
|Has severe anxiety about water in his eyes, but he really likes jumping and climbing high!|
|All siblings cuddle when watching TV, right?|
|this seems like both forever ago, and just yesterday.|
Grateful for the last four years as a mama to this little guy.
He never fails to challenge, astound and humble me.
