Tiny


I absolutely love to look at Dean's little feet. His tiny toes are absolutely adorable and I often cannot refrain from reaching out and tickling them.

Today, those thoughts were absolutely crushed...destroyed even...as I unpacked all of Dean's newborn clothes for the new baby. Just look at those socks. Can human feet really truly come in that size? I'm having a really hard time imagining Dean's chunky feet squishing into those tiny finger puppet socks. And yet, I know that they used to fit him, even with a little room left over. I'm finding that I feel as though I have lost that part of Dean. I guess I have, but what I've gained is so much more fun.


Which brings me to my next flow of thoughts and hormonal feelings. I am going to have another little tiny baby with the cutest little toes that can absolutely swim in those same petite socks. And he will scream and cry...a lot. Only this time, I'll have that big toddler boy running around causing ruckus to remind me to enjoy all of the "little" things about new baby while they're still little. Entering my third trimester, I'm feeling a little freaked out by the whole thing. Mostly, I'm feeling so very, very blessed. I am one lucky woman to experience this not only once, but twice. Not everyone gets that chance. Sniff. Does anyone have a tissue?

Passing a tissue....I was just looking at a little pair of shoes Ryan was given when he was born. They were tiny tennis shoes that were WAY to large for him and I'm nto sure he ever wore them because they were so big and then all of a sudden to small. Well I held them up to Ryan's sandles that he's currently wearing and was finding myself pondering the whole...wow his foot was that small...not possible thought myself...ok can you pass the tissue back.

just wait til the grandchildren come along! I look at Dean and all the other little ones I see and then I think of my own grown children and say to myself, "how did it all happen? Where did the time go?"
I'm the one who is truly blessed with Dean, his mommy and daddy, his auntie and the new little guy getting ready to face the world.

Socks! Baby feet are big in my book too! My poor baby has regular ink stains on them...

While I was having contractions, my darling husband said to me:
"What do baby socks go on?
They go on our baby's feet"

*sniff* Can we all share the tissue?
