Lavendar Booties and a 2 Year Old
I don’t know how we progressed from “lavendar booties”, to THIS big boy quite so quickly. It is hard, still, to see the image of our son as he ‘waited.’ His eyes looked wise, his lessons seemed learned too quickly and too deeply. I sensed he had started with love, and hoped to honor that which he knew with the steady and sturdy course of our family’s love. I can still remember the day I realized that ‘waiting’ and ‘wise’ look had faded to be replaced by the curious, joyful look of our Blueberry.
He has grown. I have learned to celebrate and and delight in the giggles of my biggie children, the gentle kindness and enduring love of my husband, and the absolute joy of sharing it all with our littlest, Blueberry. We have come together in ways I did not anticipate – and we are stronger in our family bond together with “Blue.” I feel such gratitude for the presence of my 4 children and our friends, and our family. I am working to live with more awareness of the goodnesses that infuse my days. This birthday set of events (playgroup birthday and then family birthday) provided many opportunities to celebrate and appreciate my family and our friends.
Blueberry’s “Big 2” with his little friends and with our family. In pictures:
Big brother Waffles gave him his first chocolate candy bar
He blew out his candles on his angel food cake
He watched the biggies and some friends build an awesome block tower
He tried to hang on for a sibling photo
He spent the morning outside with his friends, splashing in puddles
more puddles 🙂
cupcakes with not enough sprinkles (D’s sprinkle method still eludes me)
twirled and whirled with glee
and ….. well, THIS image is the one that reminds me of the fullness of our lives when the little one is in bed and there is still so much “kid” energy filling our home. ‘Tis a good life.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLUEBERRY
