If you could...just ignore the non-makeup wearing, ponytail bearin' chick in the picture and focus your attention on the world's sweetest son! Over the past few days, Shepherd's attention has been focused on me and I believe we've finally hit the stage where he's in luv with his mommy! :) This morning, he crawled under the covers with me and whispered in my ear "good morning" and then quickly made sure I was completely covered and not getting cold. When Chad put his arm over me, Shepherd immediately pushed his arm off and said "HEY - that's MY mommy!". I quickly raised my eyebrows at Chad and tried to cover up a laugh! :) Having a son is so rewarding, especially in this stage! Shepherd is becoming more and more protective of both me and Rauly....at the park today, he was a doting older brother and really looked out for Rauly. He's been asking me to rock him more often lately and all his little sweet gestures towards me makes me just want to love on him that much more! Today, I baked a chocolate cake for him and Rauly and he was so appreciative....he just kept saying "thank you mommy - mmmm...it's so good - thank you mommy!". It makes me sad to think that the day will come when he will be embarassed to hold my hand tight as we sit down on public benches, or that there will come a day when he won't ask me often if he can kiss my cheek. SO, for now.....I'm just soakin' up his affections and praising God for his sweet little spirit that adores me - God is good!!!
