First Steps - World Here I Come!

I just love starting Monday morning with thoughts about recent moments that I cherished!  What a great dose of positivity to get the week started off right.  Although this week brought many fun moments, it was easy to pick what to feature today.  Take a look, and I think you'll agree:

Last week was somewhat of a roller coaster for our little family of three, as Mr. Cheeks returned to Daycare, and hubby had a little trauma of his own.  Saturday evening, just as our daily thunderstorm was rolling in, I happened to peer out the window, saw this moment, and was overcome with gratitude for the relationship between my husband and my son.

Being a Teacher and a Girl, I just play with Mr. Cheeks differently.  There's always a curriculum to my play (not intentionally, but Harvard only has a few slots in 2026, I hear!).  When Hubby and Mr. Cheeks play, the laughter roars throughout the house.  Wrestling matches, balls flying everywhere, bubbles, and water fill the time for the two of them.  I'm sure there is some serious G.I. Joe in our future...Bye Bye, Barbie and My Little Pony.  

Although it didn't come easily, Hubby and I have become a strong team committed to raising our little boy.  I sincerely cherish the moments that I am given to "take a break", but I find myself sneaking in to get a peak at their special time together.

Where does the time go? I am amazed at how big our boys are getting to be already. I need to come see him soon - walking now! He and Bennett would have a ball together.

I love when little ones are first walking with their arms all over the place. Such sweet pictures and I love how you celebrate the difference between how you and your husband play with your son. Involved Dads are SO important.

What an adorable positive moment to share. I admit I do get jealous sometimes at the fun Hubby has with the kids. I'm the one trying to cook, clean, feed, dress, discipline the kids and when he comes home it's all play. At the same time, it makes me love Hubby all the more, seeing how much he loves the kids and they love him.

Awww..I miss that size. My son is 14 now and I always talk to him about the funny things he did when he was that small. Was that your sons first steps? He is too cute!
