Happy Labor Day and happy Mommy Monday, gal pals! I hope you are getting a nice day off and enjoying some extra time with the family.
It’s officially September and I have pulled out all of my favorite transition pieces that are my favorite fall colors (but can also beat that heat here in Texas still!). This burgundy dress is SO CUTE and the fit with the bunching on the sides is very flattering for every shape! It’s also conveniently enough a great one to chase after your babes in because it stays put. I can speak from experience, obviously… 😉 It’s also available in olive and a gorgeous slate gray that I think I might need to get!
But gosh y’all, it’s seriously so crazy watching Knox in this season. We are just shy of 2 years old and he is a full-on little boy. I am loving it! He wants to see everything, asks questions *of course we can’t understand half of them..haha*, and he is doing 3 word sentences randomly that blow me away. He is so kind and gentle, funny, and I just feel so lucky to be his mommy. I think my favorite thing currently that he does is he will walk around with his Buzz Lightyear, “shhh shhhh shhhh-ing” him while he pats him on the back. He no doubt picked this up from the nursery at church and it kills me. He is so sweet. Yesterday at church I had one of those moments that I was like “WOW God, help me to really develop this nurturing side of Knox and keep him a kind kid” when the ladies in the nursery told me he was going around making sure every kid had their cup and was patting babies on the back and playing with their hair if they were crying. Like… WHAT? So special. I want to bottle up his sweetness and save it for later.
We prayed every night when Knox was in my belly for a fierce spirit with a tender heart. I feel like we are getting to see that tender heart play out already and it just truly melts me. Mamas, pray over your children and watch God show off. It grows my faith constantly to see things I prayed so specifically for pan out in different areas of my life, parenting or not, with no explanation than the Lord’s doing. How sweet God is to hear our prayers and answer them just to show He cares.
Have a great day, friends! You are rockstars and so loved.
