Photostory Friday - I'm his everything

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek





I took this photo yesterday morning. There is nothing really special about the picture but I wanted it as a reminder of what Aaron was saying and doing lately.

"Do like Mama"

Right before I went to get the camera, I was pushing the earth up around my little plants because they were falling over. Aaron was right there trying his best to be helpful. Before that, when I was picking up dead leaves from around the place, he was also helping me with that.

I feel so special to him right now. I'm his everything.

He wants to do everything with me.

He wants to be like me.

He wants to help me.

He wants me happy.

The other day, when he saw that I had finished my portion of the watermelon we were having, he offered me some of his. When he sees that I've accidentally knocked myself or cut myself, he tries to make it better. He is so sweet and so adorable.

I'll enjoy it while it lasts....

Great picture Momma. As a Mom/Baby nurse, I LOVE your blog title.

As I was reading I was thinking to myself, "enjoy it while it lasts". And then I got to the last line of your post.

The obvious question is, does he blog?

Chris Osborne said...

Hopefully it will last for a long time.

Mike said exactly what I was thinking as I read your post. Now I'm scared...

Oh Amanda, this just melted my heart over the keyboard. Once again our sons are doing the same types of things and I, too, don't want that phase to end. This was a LOVELY PSF, and I am so thrilled you played!

It is an amazing feeling to be the sun in someone's universe.

You're a good mom and he's a darling boy!

Yes - my kids do play together a lot, even with the age differences of 5 years and 4 years. Alexis and Little Billy play best together when there is no one else around and Little Billy plays with the older girls - like basketball and such.

Have a good weekend, Amanda - Kellan

It's a lovely time for mother and child.

Now that is just sweet!

He's clearly a good kid. His concern for you will last. He may not always want to "Do like Mama", but you'll always have that squishy mom place in his heart.

THanks for playing PSF with us this week!

Laura said...

My sentiments exactly. Love it and enjoy it while it lasts.

Robyn said...

That's the sweetest!

Nap Warden said...

My little ones are the same way...Let's hope they stay so sweet!
