The Gift that Inspired Me... clean and reorganize Isaiah's room. Some of my favorite blooms for their sheer color and cheer and in such a sweet vase! How could I not be thrilled?

We've been spending the last few days periodically staring out at the rain and organizing our home, watching things green up outside and shine up inside.

And because I just can't resist...
Some more pictures of my little boy. These do have a purpose though, not just to show him off (grin) but to show you the adorable little coat that I made way back almost 10 years ago when I was expecting my first baby, Jayden.

Isaiah's the first one to actually wear it and that's because I finally asked my Mom to finish sewing on the velcro squares for keeping the coat closed. Thanks Mom!

And a huge thank you to all my wonderful friends for your gifts of love and beauty in celebration of my birthday last week. You all made me feel so special!

Lovely bits around my home...

Pictures cropped close so as to avoid the never ending messes that seem to accumulate quicker than ever...

...ever since this little precious boy came into our lives almost 8 months ago. Has it really been that long already?! He's the delight of our lives. And we think he's "SO CUTE"!
Jayden says that we should enter him in a cute baby contest because " for sure he would win!"

So, though I don't know what to do first half the time, I continually remind myself that baby comes first and when I happen to forget, his soft little hands on my legs, reaching up to find comfort in my arms, make me pause and savor these fleeting moments of babyhood.

Because, after all... "Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow", right?! RIGHT.
