He’s 3 going on 10.

As I sit here watching the First Wives Club for the 856th time, it’s hard to think that a year ago we were packing up our home, with high hopes that we’d have a smooth closing. We were running around fixing things as requested and counting down the days until a new chapter began!

Now, we’re sitting comfortably in our new home, in love with our space and location. This home has brought us such joy in our lives. It’s an accomplishment for us and something that fits “who we are” perfectly. It’s not too big, not too small, but just right. It’s a happy time to be decorating this new space for our first holiday season.

I can’t believe how much this little guy has grown in the past year, too! He’s like going on 10 already and he’s not even 3 just yet. Last night, he was falling asleep and reviewing the sizes little, small, smaller, and big with his hands; showing me each size. He just kept repeating, and I could see the wheels turning in his mind.

He’s grasping so many new ideas and concepts, it’s fun to watch his mind grow.

He still tells me he’s my baby guy, but he’s growing into such the little boy. I love it!

We’re buddies out and about. We love to have fun together. I am thankful to be of such good health to be an active mom in his life, getting right in to play with him every time. Most people think running is difficult, but I am thankful to have found health and fitness in my life so many years ago because I feel the opposite is far more difficult; as I’ve experienced in times of injury.

And my baby guy makes me so proud to be his Mommy! At a recent party, he flipped his slices of pizza over and yelled to the staff woman for vegetables. Maybe it’s just him, or maybe it’s all the green smoothies we share, but I am glad he likes his veggies – especially those colored peppers.

I’m working through a lot on my mind the past few months and not sure what I’m planning to do in so many areas of life. So much has changed, so much to be thankful for, and so much more to learn. I will be back here more regularly soon with photos and more creative projects, as well as sharing my running journey 🙂

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!
