It Was Worth the Wait

Forever In Blue Jeans

I am joining Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans for her weekly challenge to get mom in the picture.  This is my first week in her 2010 challenge and I am excited to be here!  If you've not been in the picture this week, it's not too late!  Here's my four step plan to recovery.  1-Grab the camera 2- grab a kid 3- take a shot 4-post it!  You can't ask for easier than that.  I can't wait to see you in the picture.

Sunday was the big day I've been waiting for- Aedan's birthday- and the day I got to give him his quilt.  

 My boys are very tactile.  The first thing he did was rub the fleece border and tell me how soft it way.  Then he sniffed it.  What can I say?  They are raised by three older sisters.  I will  not tell you the super embarrassing story of walking through Victoria's Secret with Nathaniel when he was about three years old and him rubbing all the satin night gowns and telling me how I should buy this one and that one because they were so soft.  But some woman will thank me some day.
 And then we checked out the buttons.  Which he was delighted with. 
 For which I was rewarded with a great big snuggle. 
 And a warm little boy as the temperatures dropped back to 34 Sunday night.
Are you in the picture this week?
