G is turning 3 this Saturday.  I love this song, it’s amazing how my heart lives outside of my body now.  I heard this before becoming a mommy myself, but I never knew the love I would feel for our children—it’s a new, fresh, all encompassing, beautiful, painful and strength inducing kind of a love.

Guthrie has asked for more items in celebration of his birthday.  In case you had forgotten or are new here, I shared his list initially here.  Since then, he has added sand, boots, water and candy.  This is bound to be a colorful birthday party.

Arlise enlightened me this morning that all animals have to go to the doctor of their animal type, so only crabs can be doctors for crabs, lions to lions, etc.  She went on to say, ‘wait, mommy, fish can’t walk so how do they go to the doctor?’ I love their take on life; it makes me smile and warms my heart; it really is the little things that feed my soul.

I know this is a design blog, yet I love to also share my journey……these babies, they color it amazingly well :)
