In February there are days,
Blue, and nearly warm,
When horses switch their tails and ducks
Go quacking through the farm.
When everything turns round to full
The sun upon its back -
When winter lifts a little bit
And spring peeks through the crack.

Granmama & Wesley

Wesley wanted to pose and asked me to take the picture.


Who can resist those baby blues?

Happy 5th Birthday!

My little boy turned 5! I can't believe it's been five years since I first held you, counted your fingers and toes, and held you close as you nursed and nursed and cried and nursed.... and cried...and nursed.....

I love you with all my heart and soul Wesley.

We decided to drive back to Chattanooga to visit Granmama and Grandaddy for his birthday. We had a nice time and Wesley enjoyed seeing his grandparents. We used to live across the street, so it's been hard for the boys to go so long in between seeing them. When we moved to St. Louis they asked if Granmama and Grandaddy were coming with us.

We all had a wonderful time and such a nice celebration. Me and Granmama made his favorite food - fried chicken - for dinner. And of course a brightly colored sugar bomb of a cake featuring - Wall-E! All he could talk about after that was "His Beautiful Cake" - he savored every last morsel of that thing, and we even had to take the last two pieces with us on the trip home. He held it on his lap, until he just couldn't resist anymore and finished it off!

Wesley adores Wall-E and anything to do with space and robots - so I made him a special robot t-shirt just for the occasion. Mommy & Daddy gave him a small R2D2 which he had been asking for, and you can just see the excitement on his face. Granmama & Grandaddy gave him a Wall-E desk/table, that unfortunately I did not get good pictures of. Nana & Papa in Canada filled his biggest wish - TriBot.
