As Ryan was helping Oliver get dressed for church this morning Oliver asked eagerly, "Do you think I should wear a tie? And maybe a belt?"
That boy knows a special occasion when he sees one. And, he can make any occasion special.
He came running into my room minutes later sporting his handsome blue bow-tie and critter belt telling me all about the ensemble he and his Daddy had put together.
I didn't have the heart to tell him that the shirt he was wearing was really too small.
Honestly, so are the pants. I just can't keep up with those long arms and legs!
I love that we have such a happy, enthusiastic kid! He wears every emotion he feels on his sleeve (which means deep grief and drama if his banana breaks in half or his waffles are served to him too soon before his yogurt), but I love it. It's who he is and I know God is going to use him and all his enthusiasm for His glory.
Praising the Lord on this Sabbath morning for my precious little boy who finds delight in so many parts of life, who loves to snuggle his Mama and chat lovingly with his baby sister in my belly, and who makes me laugh out loud over and over and over. What a precious gift!
