Little Fellow …

Owlie is in a really fun stage right now where he wants me to take lots of pictures of him and then show them to him. We play around with the camera a little each day, me laughing hysterically at his antics, him checking them out with pride.

I am completely smitten with this picture of him. His face is totally distorted because he is so close to the camera, but that’s part of what makes it awesome. It’s like one of those caricature drawings from the amusement parks.

I love that I can see every single freckle resting gently on his soft little pink cheeks and nose. I love that his long eyelashes are poking out under his invisible blond brows.

And I love, love, love the look of absolute trust and earnestness in his sweet blue eyes. This little fellow loves me despite all my faults. He tells me every day that he loves me, he likes me, and he is my best friend.

I’m just so lucky to be the momma of Owlie!

I know nobody reads blogs on Fridays, but I hope you’ll come back tomorrow. It’s a really big day for me!

If you counted those adorable freckles, d'ya think there might be 40 yet?

I like you. I love you. And you're one of my best friends too.
