And So.... It Begins....

My son shaved his "beard" off, for the first time this evening. I took a few pictures, then took a small patch of his virgin beard hair, and put it in a tiny little plastic pouch for safekeeping. Sentimental fool that I am.

I think I'm going to go crawl in bed and cry myself to sleep. :'(

***********

I was putting my little one to bed this evening, and after our usual nighttime banter, she said to me, "Mama, I think you're beautiful." My heart swelled. I said, "Well, thank you, baby. I think you're beautiful, too." She asked, "Do you think I'm beautiful when I'm sleeping?"

"Yes, sweet pea... you're the most beautiful of all when you sleep."

Let's hope SHE doesn't slip away too fast.

I love little girls....This is funny the other night I couldn't sleep in the recliner and Summer said I'll lay with you and you'll go to sleep. Sure enough I was fast asleep.. It works for mommies too.
