A piece of our February...

Although we have some wonderful paintings in the house - this is one of my favourites. I was so excited to get it framed and put on the wall. Emma's Primary One masterpeice of her family. I love it - and quite proud of the detail such as Daddy's green eyes -albeit below his nose..This is us through her 4 year old eyes.
And our happy chappy Ben. SOOOO cudly and kissable!
Speaking of kissable - I love when these two get along (though it is usually to cause mischief together - such as this time in the bath when they chose to pour all our shampoos into the water and turn on the jets. Holy Bubbles! )
Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft
Ahh, the first bloom of the season - a bright pink bud in our back garden. Temperatures are slowly rising (it was 13 yesterday and sun shining!) the dafffodils are sprouting and it is beginning to feel a bit like spring is around the corner. Finally. I LOVE SPRING IN BELFAST!

Birthday boy Jack - 3 fabulous years today!

You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes. ~Walter M. Schirra, Sr.

My hero Jack - he makes me smile with his cheeky grin, heart-melting eyes, his never-ending amounts of enery, the witty little things he comes out with and his forever cuddles. He is 3 today. I remember him in my tummy and the day he was born. His first tooth (bottom left), his first steps (on the beach in Kerry), his first scar (split his forehead at the dentists) and his first word (ball). Since then he has grown into such a funny little character and the most lovable boy ever. Joack I ADORE you - everyone does and HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORGEOUS BOY! Love you forever, xoxox




Please don't grow up too quicly my son...
