The sweetest child

I know everyone probably thinks their child is the sweetest child, but I truly believe if there could only be one Sweetest Child, mine would have to win. This morning I spent two hours cleaning (there's a shocker), but while I was sweeping and mopping and cleaning out the fridge, was my little one under my feet, whining, or getting into stuff? NO! He happily played all around me, throwing his ball and running to retrieve it. He never left my sight, but he never got in my way. It was as if he understood how rare a thing this cleaning was and didn't want to interfere. After all the work, he and I celebrated what a good boy he was by playing in the water hose and swinging, his two favorite things right now. I just feel like bragging on him all the time, so I think this blogging thing is the perfect outlet for me to do so. And just so you know, when we came inside from playing, he quietly laid in his crib and fell asleep. aaaah, I am such a proud mama.

So, let me get this right, not only is he a cleaning child and a beautiful child, he is also the sweetest!!!! You are so spoiled with such a great kid, you are going to get payback with "peanut":) Hehe... well, that is what happened w/ my parents anyway, they had me (the perfect one) and then came my brother! HAHAHA I am SOOOOOOO j/k... I was a terror and my brother was also a terror!! I think Little L is adorable and am glad he allowed you to get some cleaning done. Y'all just come on over if you get finished at your house - I have plenty of cleaning that needs to be done!

Congratulations on #2. I saw it last week on your blog but didn't want to say anything because I didn't know if it was public knowledge.
