in love....

Today I am in love with many things...including my oh-so-gracious husband and the little dictator who runs our house, of course!

I'm in love with
- doctors who truly care about their patients

- young adults who are not caught up with worldly things but instead live passionately for God (more about this to come!)

- meeting new people face to face. M and I ate lunch in a super busy cafe and got to sit with 5 strangers as we shared a 6-top. I have loved making friends through blogging, but how awesome it was to have real-time conversation with new people. As a SAH mom, it is soooo easy to get sucked into your little world (just ask Scott!), so to hear about the lives of others was fantastic. And I didn't talk about diapers or sleep once...NOT ONCE!

- the fact that I have a camera and can document the adorable smiles of my boy. One day I'd like to take family photos for families those who cannot afford such a luxury.

That's not all, of course, but for the sake of blog real estate, it's all for now.

The following slideshows photos are of 1.) M cracking up because he accidentally dropped his quarter down his pants leg and 2.) our trip to the Botanical Gardens/Aquarium. Our aquarium fave: jellyfish! M's faves of the day: sitting by a little boy with his feet in the fountain, the butterfly pavilion, and strawberry dippin' dots.

The "made for the shade" shirt he has on was a gift from Rebecca & crew. It was totally appropriate for the day since we were dashing from shady spot to shady spot to endure the desert heat!

Oh I LOVE the jellyfish!!! We were at the Aquarium in New Orleans (my mom is from there) and the jellyfish were my favorite too!!!!!

I love the pic of M with the 'nanner on his face. :) So cute, & totally kissable! It was so fun to see him in the T-shirt.

Love you guys.

What great pics. Your botanical garden and acquarium rock...ours is sorry by comparison. For some reason I was noticing how big M is when seated in his carseat. Wow!! And those feet..what size does that little man wear : ). And I'm glad you said that about the quarter dropping down his pants b/c for a minute I was thinking..man M is starting young in scratching himself there : )..just kidding. Kristie
