Those Eyes

Those eyes.

Oh those eyes!

You love exploring this big world with those big blue eyes and I feel so blessed to witness you learn.  We have placed mobiles and toys in front of you since about the second week but you would "look through" them as if they weren't even there.  Well that pondering has begun and you can stare at a mobile for a good 10 minutes (2-3 hours in Beau time!).

On your swing there is a mirror that you can look into and I just sat at my desk for the last while listening to you coo and giggle at the little image that you saw reflecting back at you. This makes your mama's heart melt every time.

Sometimes (meaning just about every time now) when I burp you, you prop your feet on my legs and straighten your legs so that you are standing. Then you lift your head up off of my shoulder and swing your head from side to side enjoying every little thing your eyes land on.

Tonight was a special time and I had another moment that I sat and pondered on the old spirit that is inside of you.  You have waited so long to come to this earth and to get this perfect little body, and I get to watch you explore this world. Finally! I wonder how long we have known each other.  I wonder if I told you before I came down that I would see you in 26 1/2 years.  I wonder if you said "goodbye" to your future brothers and sisters and you promised them that you would pave the way for them.  I wonder what goals you made with your Heavenly Father before he released you into my arms.  Oh the things I wonder and that wondering begins when I look into your perfect eyes that connect me with your soul.

Love you Beau man.

Love, Mama.
