Sweeter with Time

Not sure if Mattox is getting better or I'm just getting used to it...probably both. This is the face that we normally see (aka grumpy dwarf):

But lately we've been seeing more of this (aka happy):

It is so nice to see him smile...makes me feel like I'm doing something right. He's definitely finding my soft side - and the bond is definitely getting stronger. See if you can follow my train of thought here the other day: I was looking at his birth announcement the day they came in(while nursing him) - looking at how I gave this child 4 names -- they barely fit on the card --- he's doomed the rest of his life with trying to fit his full name on things ---- like his wedding invitation ---- if he ever gets married ------ boy, his fiance is going to hate me when it comes to that ------- his fiance??? ------- all of a sudden I felt the hair stand up on the back of my neck --------why does it bother me so bad that he might one day get married? ------ no girl will ever be good enough for him. Why don't I think of Mati Claire like this? Why does the son-in-law not scare me half as bad as the daughter-in-law? Mrs. Paula, I feel your pain. Hopefully I met the standard. ha!!

Loved the birth announcement! He sure is a cutie.

I agree with the Krisa. The announcement was precious. And, it's just a different bond with our boys. We know we'll have a connection with our daughters forever, but like they say: A daughter is a daughter for life, but a son is only a son until he takes a wife. I don't know if I'll ever be ready for that day!

Why does that scare you? Because Daughter-in-law's and their Mother-in Law's are just like oil and water. You will never agree on how to do things. Best Bet - live far enough away to each have your own space. Sara's right...he'll have to move on one day, and he'll choose his wife, as he should.
