where he spent his summer

Babyhood is fleeting. Oh how I know this so well.  Lately, everytime I look at Mateo, he looks bigger.  He knows more and he wants to be with his momma less.  He is of course, a boy and of this boy of mine how he pulls at my heart strings.  This week he has told me in no uncertain terms that I am not to kiss his sweet baby cheeks so many times in a row.  Bounderies must be set it seems.  He has much to do you see.  There are rocks to throw and chickens to catch, dirt to play in and of course he must try to interrupt every game that happens without him.

I am not alone, oh no… I am not.  Everyone here is smitten with him.  Just as smitten as they were the day they met him only now he does these funny little things which make us laugh so much.  He is our little clown.  At the dinner table, we all try to keep a straight face while we say the meal prayer because his sign of the cross looks so much more like a catcher  sending signals to the pitcher.  He is busy all day.

The one exception is on my back.  No matter what he is into, if I get the carrier, he will come.  I must admit that its my favorite way to spend time with him.  The smell of his sweet baby hair and those precious little hands of his, they just undo me.  While he is on my back he will play with his mommas hair, run his hands on my arms and just enjoy being close.  I get dinner accomplished with Mateo on my back.  That is his most irritable time of day and it keeps him out of trouble and he is seeing me do my work, the work I do for my family.  We have hiked, we have picked blueberries, attended town functions, spent countless hours at parks, farmers markets, stores, soccer games and all the while I have gotten to have him so close.

I know someday soon he will not be there and I do not look forward to it.  For today, I am enjoying having this little guy along for the ride for I know there will be a last time.  I don’t remember the last time with my other babies but there was a last time and I will continue to carry him as long as he wants me to.

This summer was busy.  Oh so busy.  In the best ways, in the hardest ways, in the most memorable ways.  I don’t want to bombared it all into one post so I leave you until tomorrow.  I have something very special to share with you.  If we are friends on FB then you have already know this all summer but if not then I will see you then.

    I cried like a baby when we gave away our Ergo. Best experience ever with our youngest. Wish we had known with our oldest. Time passes so quickly!!

      Sharron, I went and did something bad haha! Instead of letting him outgrow the Ergo, I bought a Tula and now he can hitch hike for a while longer.

    So glad to see some news from you! I have missed your more frequent posting so much.

    We have a little boy with huge brown eyes at our house, too, who gets away with more than he should because he is just so stinkin' cute. 🙂 Matthew is precious and I am glad you're enjoying the last of his babyhood. You will always have those memories to treasure.

      Hi Emily!!! Nice to see you here. Those brown eyes on the little guys are something aren't they? They really suck us in.
