this boy of mine

1:25 AM

He's really growing up.  He's definitely gaining in height over his short mama.  I see him growing in independence with each passing day.  It's a bittersweet thing, you know.

his smile

Every once in a while he reminds me that he's halfway to 18, which means he's halfway to moving out.  The first time he said it, I said, "Why are you saying that?  Do you want to move out?"  Then comes that smile that gets me every time.  He only says it to get a rise out of me, and it works. 

silly smile

When he says a joke that he thinks is funny, he crinkles his nose and lets out a giggle that is contagious.  I love it.  As we have our almost daily battles as he stretches his wings and tests out the waters of independence, I am so very thankful for that smile, that giggle, that brings us together again in the moments of tension and reminds me just how much I love this boy of mine.
