After getting up with the Finn like 12 times.
"12 times" I said.
At 3:53am I had had enough.
So the baby and I headed downstairs. I set him down to play... He looked at me like you want me to play right now in the middle of the night!? Sure why not. . . I don't need sleep baby boy.
Its ok, I really like you Finny. You crawled a few days ago for the first time. It was so cute and I was so proud. You are growing so fast. So fun to watch. But I do have a thing for trying to keep my babies....well babies forever. So watch out.
A lot of people didn't think it was such a great thing when they found out you would be coming to our little family. They thought the timing was horrible. I waited a extra long long time to tell most people about my good news. We were in the middle of what became a feisty storm that we would not be able to calm despite our best efforts.
But little boy. You were wanted! You were just what we needed. You could have come during better times....but you didn't. You came right when I needed you. I love you for that. . .and the Lord.
because during that torrential downpour.
YOU WERE SUNSHINE
and have been everyday since.
even at "3:53" in the morning.
Here is Finn playing in the middle of the night.
Happy as a clam.
ps. I just heard another mouse in the pantry.
another fetchin mouse.
I am repeating the serenity prayer now.
Christian is going to kill someone.
Prolly it will be the mouse.
