weekend inventory

I'd like to first start by acknowledging the tragedy in Connecticut on Friday.  I have not yet gone a day without crying about those poor sweet angels that had their lives taken from them.  I have felt completely wrecked.  It is something that I, nor anyone else I'm sure, have the capacity to make sense of.  I can't seem to shake the sorrow off and I can only imagine what that community and those families are feeling.  It makes me want to hold my son and never let him go. 

Friday I was thankfully with DJ when I read the news on my phone and he held me while I wept, just trying to get the words out. We spent most of the day shopping for Christmas before we went out on our date.  Once we got home and saw all the images of the day and listened to more and more details we just couldn't go out after the movie.  We saw the Hobbit and it was excellent, but we came right home to be with Hank again.  Hank was fast asleep and it took every ounce of self control I had no to grab him and hold him.  He woke up at 4am and I couldn't get to him fast enough.  I held him and sobbed again as I fed him.  I am so grateful for him.  He looked so small and innocent at that moment and I was happy that I didn't have to explain such an evil man to him.  If I was not already grateful enough, I am now oozing grateful from my pores for my perfect son.  He is the greatest gift.
Mustache Monday - You can't be sad when you see this face

Saturday was a busy day.  We had little sister Natalie's birthday party and my work holiday party.  Zap Zone for a little lazer tag and some kiddy casino type action followed by bowling with my coworkers.  Hank was so good! He is such a social butterfly.  Happy to hang out with anyone and everyone.  No crying, no fussing, just in complete amazement of the world around him.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and that you gave your loved ones lots of love.  That is what's important.
