It was a bit hectic and stressful as well. But he really is such a joy to me right now that it was all worth it.*
I love my Little M. He has become such an obedient, loving little boy over the past several months. He has such a sweet heart. He loves to help me do things and I am constantly amazed at how capable he is. He used to always whine that everything was too hard for him, so I began telling him, "You can do hard things!" He took it to heart and even turned it on me one day when I told him he couldn't do something he wanted because it would be "too hard". He especially loves to help me in the kitchen and I love his company and his help. He's my little buddy and I'm happy to take him with me just about anywhere I go. He loves to laugh and find the fun in everything and is a great example to me in that respect.
So, even though today was crazy, it was all very worth celebrating this Little M who brings so many Joyful Moments to my life and our home.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments with someone as special as Little M!
*I really couldn't have gotten through today without more of my wonderful friends helping me this morning and my sweet HH. He came home and I spewed forth my stress, frustration, and anxiety from today, the few days preceding today, and the next couple days all over him in a gush of words and fuming. And he took Baby B (my hip's parasite the last few days) from me in spite of the baby's protests, and listened to it all. Then he took Baby B with him to a brief home teaching appointment, giving me time to straighten the house, make Little M's special birthday dinner, and calm down a bit.
