It goes without saying, but above all else, I am most thankful for my boys. Without them I'd be lost. They are the reason I wake up in the morning. Because of these sweet boys, I am more conscious about the things I say, the imprint I make on the world, and the example I am setting every day for them.
So for today (in no particular order), I am writing about my extreme gratitude for my youngest son...Alex. A.K.A. Digger Fuzz Bucket, Sunshine, Spider Monkey, Pee Wee, Monkey Boy, Bones, Spud and A-yex (among others!).
Alex is a charmer, through and through. He's infectiously "cute" and has a vocabulary of a kid much older than 2 but with the voice of a chipmunk so it's adorable. He has a smile that lights up my world and penchant for climbing and jumping and all sorts of daredevil acts.
We're struggling through a particularly needy stage with Alex lately, but I have to say, after raising a ridiculously independent child (Nate), feeling needed isn't half bad! I am grateful for Alex's current Mommy-complex since I know it is short lived and before long, he, too, will be telling me to go, leave, or otherwise exit his personal space. I do so love my snuggle bunny!
