AJ, Chicken Noodle, Sugar Muffin Man...

No matter what we call him...

I love this boy to the moon and back...
as deep as the ocean...
as high as the mountains...

more than Dr. Pepper, chocolate...
and Krispy Kreme doughnuts...

(These are the games we play...that go on and on.)

He is sensitive, compassionate and determined.
He warms my heart and makes me smile everyday.

He's my one I want to keep a protective bubble around when I send him out in the world...
not a protective bubble like a helmet and pads that Abby will need...
the kind that protects him from hurtful words and unkind people.

He loves happy endings and eating tomatoes out of our garden.

His favorite book series right now is Henry and Mudge
because it reminds him of himself and Latte.

He loves to give my Brody belly hugs and kisses and can't wait to meet his baby brother.

He loves to play the game Break The Ice, test the spaghetti noodles by throwing them on the front of the oven, have an afternoon snack with his momma on the glider, eat corn on the cob and drink fruit punch kool-aid.

His current favorite word is animosity.
He works it into every conversation and all his playing scenarios.
When I finally asked him if he knew what it meant...
He sounded truly hurt and offended. He crinkled up his nose at me and replied with,
"YES, I KNOW WHAT IT MEANS!
IT IS ANOTHER WORD FOR 104!"
Then he stormed off...

Good thing he stormed off because I was laughing my butt off...
and might have wounded his tender spirit.

I love him too! Love that picture. He has James eyes I think. What do you think he'll be when he grows up? I want to say he'll be creative.
