two and a half years big
and up to
Saturday his smile was
jack-o-lantern huge and his little red head was pumpkin big...
He flew into my arms with batman wings,
legs flying wildly
wrapped me in Love...
The baby with the fresh haircut,
the little pink shoulders,
and the 'I'm a big boy now"
took two steps onto
my white washed porch and
"lets paint, Mimi".....
To three 'ephiphants',
and 'Georgia' and 'Praysley'....
God, it grows....
Painted on a Saturday morning...chubby little fingers swirling, twirling, seeing.... And Mimi in her bedhead and thrown on jeans, watching, falling in love all over again.
