As I look out the window

July 13, 2016 I wrote this blog post As I peek through the window

We were weary and anxious to live in our old/new home.

I still remember the long nights as we prepared the old house for its occupants.

Almost two years later we live here. We really live here. We spend most of our time at home. We embody the term homebodies.

Today after two long years,  as the fireplaces were being repaired and I cleaned up after the dirty dusty job, I see a baby on the front porch. He is getting so big and he loves being outside.

I take a minute while mopping the dining room and tap on the window. He looks around for the noise. He spots me and immediately crawls at full speed to the window.

My heart.

It skips a beat when that sweet little boys face lights up with joy as he sees me through the window.

He reaches for the window ledge and pulls himself up

He immediately shows me his teeth because every time I pick him up he finds my teeth and we have to share teeth stories.

He pushes his face close to the window as he tries to figure out why he can’t get to me.

And closer.

Just look at those chubby little dirty fingers

And he comes in for the kiss

A game of peek-a-boo is always welcomed.

the plant doesn’t stand a chance.

I re-read the blog post that I wrote in 2016 as I dreamt about our future at our home. Two years ago I looked in the window as I could only imagine how we would live our lives.

Never in a million years, as I now look out the window would I have ever dreamt of such a beautiful life full of family and so many wonderful friends that we are blessed to share our life with.

I hope your Saturday was full of whatever makes you happy.
