We go to get the stitches removed tomorrow, and I hope that will be our last visit to Urgent Care for a long time.
|Christmas Eve-Eve after it's had a few days to heal|
The other day, Wade was napping and McCord and I were enjoying some rare one-on-one time playing together outside. He decided he wanted to make a fort out of his slide, so we gathered up a quilt and some books. He crawled in his fort and said, "Mama come in!" I am so glad that I had my phone on me because I was able to capture a picture of this moment that makes my heart overflow with joy every time I see it. He wants me to be a part of his world! I love McCord's world - it's so imaginative and magical - yes, of course I will come in! And so I found myself rolling around on the grass trying to fit my 32 year old self into a space made for toddlers because I couldn't stand the thought of not being a part of McCord's world. I know all too well, that the day is coming when it is no longer cool for Mama to make a fool of herself trying to squeeze into McCord's forts, but for now, he wants me! And that makes me happy.

|It made the perfect rocket ship.|
|Even the inside of the rocket ship got custom detailed.|

McCord's also been calling me Mom lately. I'm not sure I'm ready for that.
