Cory's Thank You

Cory loves his spider man snow boots and would live in them if we let him. Kevin has really tried to teach him they are for the snow and that when it snows, he can wear them. Well, it snowed here this week and Cory was the happiest little boy ever. He would look out the window all morning (he wakes up really early) and then run through the house yelling that the lights were on outside once the sun came up. He knows I won't let him go out and play until the "lights are on" outside. I've been sick, so I'd bundle him up and send him out while I stayed curled up in a blanket on the couch watching him from the window. He just stomps snow and pokes at it with a stick until I make him come in.
The other night when I was at work, Kevin had him outside playing in what was left of the snow and he see's Cory look up to the sky and say "thank you, thank you, thank you." Kevin asked him who he was thanking, and Cory said, "I'm thanking the clouds for the snow." It was so cute. I've taught Cory about rain coming from the clouds and he was smart enough to infer that snow also comes from the clouds. He is such a fun and smart little boy!

Coming up for air...

Well, I guess I never dreamed it would take me almost 2 years to post again, but I think it's taken that long for me to figure out who I am and what I think again. Motherhood is so rewarding and I wouldn't change a thing about it, but I've finally realized that I am more than just a mother and a wife. I'm still the girl who...
loves to be outside
loves to play volleyball
loves animals
loves to write
loves to run (more the feeling when I'm done)
loves to spend time with family and friends
and loves to laugh.
And now I'm also the girl who...
loves to cook
loves to scrapbook (I know...who would have thought!!?)
loves to play with Cory
loves to snuggle with Cory and watch Peter Pan over and over and over
loves to try new and healthier foods
loves to shop
and loves to peak in and watch Cory sleeping at night.

I was far from prepared for the emotional shift having a baby would bring, but I'm resurfacing a better person, a more fulfilled person, and a more talented person.
