One Boy + One Box = A Blast!

It really is the little things in life that matter, which I was reminded of tonight after school. When I got home, there was an unexpected package waiting. The surprise turned out to be an adorable pair of overalls for Charlie, from his Auntie Nani. After all the years of loving on, and (I admit) spoiling my nephew and nieces, it is so sweet to realize that I have a little boy who other people now want to spoil! Anyway, though I am so thankful, that's not really what this post is about.

It's more about the fact that I am so in love with the way Charlie is overjoyed by even the simplest things in life. This is what I absolutely love about babies, they are the only humans I know who are literally thrilled by simplicities such as cardboard boxes. Pure joy!!!

Such cute pictures! Also, just wanted to say thank you so much for all the support and understanding! I really appreciate it! It really is great to hear I'm not alone and to read all the stories of those who came out on the other side! (p.s. I read a little of your back story and I think we're using the same facilitator -- CSS -- just different counties.)

He looks so big. Can't believe he's already 6 months old.

We had a large box a few weeks ago and Isabel loved playing in it. I have a couple of empty boxes now and she climbs on top of them and uses them as drums. Who needs toys when you have boxes.

He is just too, too cute! Glad he had a good time in the box lol! Wouldn't it be nice if we could still be entertained by a cardboard box? Those containing wine excluded...life would be so much easier. And cheaper! :)
