this really is just what the doctor ordered. family time.
there is no time for grief with a little one about, and i'm thankful for that. that's not to say i'm not grieving, but having caleb's needs at the forefront has brought about a beautiful side-effect. everytime i feel as though i may just burst into tears right there on the spot, i replace those thoughts with a happy memory of my nana. you know what? it's working. it has me thinking of things that i've not thought about in years. it makes me happy. happy for those memories.
we've laughed so much these past few days which at times feels odd, but i know my nana would be happy about this.
caleb has been cracking us up with his oh so serious face at the zoo's play park. i mean have you seen that boy's face coming down the slide?? eh and lets not talk about mine ;)
oh and we're also learning to have eyes in the back of our heads. take your eye of him for a second and he's off. picnickers beware, if you leave your sandwich unattended...hell if you've got your sandwich in your hand just not in your mouth yet, you better watch out for caleb!
caleb, my boy. you are the best distraction a girl could ask for.
