Having Fun With Boys - You know what I mean

Raising a little boy is so...strange. Sam's moods are so fleeting and extreme. One moment he is grunting and yelling at his truck that will not stay up on the couch when he puts it there, screaming and turning red in the face in aggressive frustration. The next he is head butting me with his mouth wide open for a kiss, he lays his head on my leg and smiles as I rub his ears while he whispers sweet nothings, aka babble, to my lap. I think I'm in for it. He's got me right where he wants me. Is it wrong to believe I have the sweetest baby imaginable? The best? Because I do...believe that, I mean.

Here are some highlights from the zoo today, the highlight being the ice cream. This is not unlike the face he makes for that kiss.

My two boys.

And for the five of you that care, we'll be headed to the in-laws for the 4th so there won't be an 80's Sunday this week. We'll pick up where we left off next week.

Happy weekend and Happy 4th!

Boys are great- it gets even better. Boys will always want to give their Mamas big kisses (I hope) and I love it when during an awards show a celebrity or athlete always says, "Hi mom!" or "I want to thank my mom..." or "I love you mom!" oh, that just melts my heart! My boys will do that someday!

I've heard about the mama-boy bond, but have yet to experience it as the mother of 2 girls. Maybe the 3rd will be a boy and I can enjoy the mutual adulation, too.

Nice new site look, by the way. I'm just getting caught up on my blog reading and yours looks new and improved.

I just love having a baby boy! So much so that if I ever have another one (big if) I wouldn't mind having another boy!

I just loved those pics of Sam eating that ice cream! I'm glad you guys had a good trip to the zoo!

Have a good trip to the in-laws! Maybe you and your hubby will get a chance to see a movie!

Of course having a girl, I can't relate... But you make me want to try again for a boy. I'd like to experience being the mama of a boy. It sounds pretty sweet.

oh how adorable your boy is!! I have one boy myself. It is a riot - one second he is all tough and the next he is as sweet and soft as they come. I love it!! He is the greatest thing - and yes we mom should all believe that our child is indeed the most wonderful thing God created.

I am new here - love your masthead photos. So nice to meet you - hope you are having a great weekend:)

I have girls only so I don't totally relate, but if you want to talk about dress-up and make-up, I am your woman!!!

The zoo looked like fun.

Thanks for your info about the header. I am going to try something spiffy.

I can however relate to the in-laws, I have to spend a good part of the week with them. Oy-vey!

It's so fun to se another longish blonde curled baby boy out there! I have yet to give my 20 mo. old the trim... I just love the baby curls and once they come off, they are suddenly grown up!
