Hopelessly in Love

Ok, readers, I am in over my head.
In love.
When I found out this little person was to be a boy, I was thrilled, but I'll admit the fleeting thought, (sigh), "I'll love being a mother of a son, but no more smocked dresses? No more frilly pink fancy panties? Boy clothes are just so boring." Then I resolved in my head, "You've had more than your share of dressing baby girls. 4 times. Move on to blue."

Seriously, when I go in a store, my body just migrates, unknowingly, to the girl section. Why would anyone even want to venture to all that blah blue/green/brown stuff?

Well all that has changed. Camouflage pj's. Tiny leather cowboy boots. Onesies that say, "Chicks dig my tractor." Like I said, I'm in over my head.

I put this little plaid tie on him yesterday, then his dark jeans, and shoes. And I just died.

I started taking pictures and I could not stop.

Then I heard Ross tell him, "Aye, laddie, you're wearin' the Stuart tartan. " And I just died all over again.
I finally had to stop. I was going to be late for church. I had more fun than should be allowed dolling my girls up. But with a few grays sprouting on my head, and realizing he's the last wee Campbell, I am lovin' this boy stuff.

I am with you Sara. No words describe the relationship between a mother and her son(s). I totally relate . . . You should see the pictures I have! :)

My daughters have blessed my life and my sons have enriched it.

Ahhhh . . . Being a mother!

Sara, he is just about the cutest thing in that little white shirt, jeans AND a tie!! Such a sweet face!
I'd like to introduce him to Harper but she was busy holding hands with a little baby boy at church yesterday already!!

He is precious! And there IS something special about moms and their baby boys!!
