What can I say?
Life is full of contradictions.
Like when you swear you will never:
get a facebook account,
dye your hair,
use a glue gun...
As promised, here in living color, is 15 minutes in pictures
of Jonah discovering the joys of sugar, chocolate and Blue #5.
"Aha, what is this technicolor delight?"
"Alright, I'll try it, but just a taste..."
"Sacre bleu! Zis is incre'able!"
"Ok, if you insist, but just one more bite..."
"Did you say, "Dig right in"? Well, okay..."
"It's sweet, it's squishy... it's a sensory extravaganza!"
"People just don't understand my art."
"My hair? Oh, you know, dah'ling, nothing special. Baby shampoo,
a little tear free conditioner, and about a pound o' yuuuuummm."
"Can you believe they plan to destroy this masterpiece by giving me a bath?"
If you have ever read more than a few of my posts, you know, of course, of my utter thrill at having Jonah boy in our lives. I am so blessed to have been given the privilege of sharing my life with this peaceful being. When Jonah had that horrid seizure a few days before his birthday, I spent several hours in the familiar fear that we might lose him, and in the time since it has served as a reminder to be ever grateful.
If you have met him, you know what a magical soul he is.
Every single day since his birth, I have whispered in his ear, "I'm so glad you're here." And his being here has made me more grateful for each of my ten-toed blessings. He has brought calmness to Ethan, playfulness to Adam, responsibility to Ellie, maturity to Tessa, tenderness to Guy, and to me?
Pure, chocolaty joy.
