Days with the "baby".

Okay, so he's not a baby anymore, but he will forever be the baby of our family and I am soaking up every moment of my days with him.

I really do love having a lot of kids.  And having only three and a half years between the oldest 4 is actually really great.  But having some extended one on one time with the little man has actually made me love all of them more.  It reminds me why I adore being a mom, even on the bad days.  And having Matthias as our caboose has been such a gift because this guy is a hoot!

He's a bright little booger who understands humor and whit and pretty much anything we put in front of him.  He is so funny and chatty and helpful and cuddly.  Don't get me wrong, he has his moments, but I have no doubt that God knew I would need this little man to make life a little whole lot sweeter. He even tells me throughout the day that I am "the best mom in the whole wide world".  Heart melting.

It's been 4 amazing years so far with him and I know that our time together like this is limited.  In less than two years I will have all of my kids in school all day after more than 14 years of being a mom.  How crazy is that?!  I have to be honest and say that I am seriously looking forward to it.  I'm ready.  But with it still a little ways away, I am truly enjoying this time with my little buddy by my side.

I mean, how could I not!
