Big Brother's Prize


Saturday Mr. Daddy & Big Brother Noel went hunting. Take a look at what Noel scored!

Childhood Revisited



There's yet another emotion tied to mommyhood, I've found.

I'm not sure what it's called, but it's the warm feeling I get watching my parents with Itty Bit.

My mom is his trusted nurturer. He loves her and knows she understands what he needs and wants. She cares for him with a familiar tenderness and is thoroughly attuned to his moods.

My dad... well let's just say that Papa is Itty Bit's favorite person. Papa speaks and Itty Bit looks for him. He steps into view and elicits joyous smiles. It's amazing to watch the recognition on Itty Bit's face - the instant huge grin and squeals.

This feels like revisiting my childhood - realizing that my parents probably cared for me in much the same way. I'm grateful for it, and profoundly thankful that they are here to be such a big part of Itty Bit's life.

Jest Fest 2006



We had a great time at the Jest Fest last night. The babies celebrated their first costume party and Little Jo enjoyed being a cheerleader this year. There were LOTS of people - and some familiar faces I haven't seen in awhile.
I'm always amazed at how creative people can get - and Ju is one of those people who has a knack for it. May-May wore my old zebra costume with a new hat that Ju put together an hour earlier.
Check out the cute kids!
