~A Baby Boy~

This same time last year , I was worried about the baby I carried .Would he be healthy ??? Would he be normal ??? Would I carry him to term ??? How will my other children {His siblings} see him?? Would they love him ??? And the biggest question I had was...Am I too old to have him?? Would I ....could I be able to keep up with him ???

          He turned 7 months old just the other day.....and I watch in wonder at his leaps and bounds .
   ...Listening to his laughter...his first words....trying new foods for the first time...and crawling.
 Silly now to think of all my time and energy wasted on such silly worries. Thinking about it...He opened doors long since closed to certain parts of my life. The fun to be had at new experiences once done for his siblings before him...Fireworks....Road trips...Ice-cream cones....The river for the first time....Swimming in the pool....

            I never thought I would be a mum again....So happy and blessed I am. I find it harder to remember life without this bright eyed little baby boy...and in some ways...I was waiting for him.

~A few of my Favorite Things ~

What is more grand then attending a tag sale....  you come across a box or two filled with treasures...$2 later...you are like a kid at Christmas . I have always had a vintage love....What others may dismiss as old and useless ...I see it as GRAND !! Case in point....
     ... A little girl and her treasures, her life in a box out for sale....


 ..Baby toys ,Birthday cards from her parents ,gloves from her First Communion....
          ..Sunglasses from her teens....old film reels ,some with film still on them...Buttons and tiny postcards....

~What a year brings~

If someone told me I would be "in this place" in my life ... I would have said to them they were mad. Ah...what a year brings....Happiness ,sorrow ,hopes made ,dreams dreamt ,friends you once held dear , gone before their time ,letters not written back and phone calls never made. Life is an odd thing...it come with details you didn't expect . I was blessed with a new love of my life...a new son.... on a blizzard filled day in December ....
He came to the world in the usual way , and he was/is prefect .
He grows before my eyes ,surround by his sisters and brother who adore him!!! A proud father who rushes home everyday to hold him. Sadly there is his grandmother who died just a few hours after he arrived. She never saw her newest grandson. This year brought losses I never thought would come to pass...but that is life..right?


As I sit here to write...a baby sleeps in my arms with not a care in the world ...save and sound .Two kids curled up in my bed watching Netfliks .....two more teenage daughters home from work quietly chatting about their day and the plans of tomorrow ....and one of my eldest arrived home after a tough day with beer in hand asking for my time....and I smile...for they will still come and talk with me.



......Life  may not be going in the direction I thought it may....Blessed all the same to be on the journey.
