While we were at the beach this past weekend, Wyatt and I had some free time so we went to the Aquarium while Wes hung out with some of the youth. We had a great time. It was his first trip to see "Sea Creatures". While he enjoyed seeing them very much, I was left witih the conclusion that land animals are truly the ones who have captured his heart. His last question before we left being, "Where are the lions and tigers?"

While we were at the beach this past weekend, we gave up a faithful companion - Wyatt's paci. We took our little boy to the Springmaid Pier and it was there that he and his paci parted ways. He cast it out into the sea for the sharks.
It was much less dramatic than Wes and I anticipated. In fact, it was more a celebration. But as I reflect on the role that paci played in our life, I am a little nervous about what tonight may hold. Furthermore, was it the paci so many nights that helped us make it through or was it the good hand of our God upon us? I'm choosing to believe it is the goodness of our Lord who got us through this far, and will continue to. Even so, farewell ole paci. Farewell, ole friend.

it's a new day!

the sandbox...or a ship...or an animals cage...
lots of awe and wonder...
Wyatt and Ethan...any given Wednesday
games with loud sounds...
swords that can be jets
tigers that GROWL
trucks that ZOOM
Snips and snails. And puppy dog tails.
That's what little boys are made of...

this was the first costume Wyatt ever wore - this smile was very short lived - clearly seen above.
then all of a sudden, a year later, Wyatt likes this costume (sized for a 12 month old) and enjoys playing while wearing it...
...and even singing in it...
