Alex

When I ask him to try to say a word, he gives that little smirk.
I love that he loves my cooking.
Sleeps in that headset and I sneak in around midnight,
slip it off and kiss his forehead.
When he's feeling shy, he looks up at the ceiling.
Baby of the family by 30 seconds and a mama's boy.
Sweet young man of mine.

  2. So much love in those words. Just beautiful. And he looks so cute in the pictures. Is he looking at you? Nothing is greater than a mother's love.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    God bless.

  24. I'm the same way, my headphones are constantly on. I only take them off to sleep because they're uncomfortable. It seems like you have a really good relationship with him, this whole post had me smiling from start to finish.

  26. Since my Dearest, is not a "blog person", from time to time I have to share some of my blog friends with him.

    I have shared the boys several times with him, when you have posted pictures or stories, but tonight, when I share the pictures of Alex and your sweet words, he had a tear...it touched him to the heart.

    How we love your boys, and the marvelous parents you are to them. The baby by 30 seconds. I love that!!!

    WOW, Taylor is so handsome and his girlfriend, lovely!!!

  31. your words take my breath away...Bless you Betsy. There is no love like a mother's love.

  32. Hi Betsy,

    I was reading the comments and then went to see the new picture of Taylor and I am not sure if it is just me or if others see it too, but I once was looking at a boy and now I am looking at a man. It is like he has just suddenly grown up into this very handsome young man and has lost all his boyish looks.

    Maybe it is his beautiful girlfriend but I think it is just him. He is a very nice looking dude. Psst, don't tell him I said that.

    God bless.

  48. I was just looking back at some of your old posts. I love the posts about the boys. I was laughing because Parker wears headphones to bed and I try and take them off while he's sleeping. It look so uncomfortable and it gives him crazy hair. Too funny.<3
