{kisses} & gratitude


...It's impossible for me to give Oliver enough kisses. Earlier in the day Oliver fell asleep on my chest...I held him so tight and kissed his precious little head over and over. While kissing him and smelling his head, I just couldn't inhale deep enough. The love for my son is unlike anything i've ever known. And he is such a good little boy. He is so patient. So happy. So flexible. He takes my breath away. Every morning is a gift...every chance I get to see {and hold} him is a gift. Better than a new pair of shoes...and we all know how much I live for shoes! Haha just kidding. Today we went to lunch as a family and there was a couple sitting in front of us and every now and then, I caught them glancing over at me and my family. When we got up to leave they stopped us and asked, "Is your baby always that patient? Wow, he is such a good baby!" I am not sure how we got so blessed but I am so thankful each and every day!

That smile is to die for. Can't wait for Mitch's little boy to get here. Hopefully he will be as cute as Oliver.
