It's The Little Things

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

I decided to join a link up to do an “It’s the Little Things” post. Basically, you just share about whatever little things your heart desires. You should definitely join. Reading the other posts is so much fun! 


I’ve been thinking about the little things of my every day life lately. It sure is the little things that carry me through to the next day. Days are long and can be trying with little ones, but those small moments, those sweet glances and those sly and sweet smiles are those little moments that make those long and trying days worth it. Am I right or am I right? :)

So, it sure is the little things. The little things wrap around my whole heart and make it swell with joy. 




It’s the way Eli wakes up every morning happy and thrilled to see me. Like he has not seen me in days. 

It’s the way he reaches for me when I walk into a room. 

It’s the way he holds onto my hand for longer than just a small moment just because he knows he can and he knows I am there. I will always be there.

It’s the way he eats his cheerios and how one (or two or three) always gets stuck on his cheek or on his neck. I always find those dang Cheerios around my house hours after he’s eaten them.


It’s the way he smells. That sweet and innocent baby smell. I hope I can always remember that smell. 

It’s the way he rubs his eyes when he’s sleepy and how he clings so tightly to me as we travel up to his nursery for his naps. 


It’s the way he says “mama” when he looks at me. That right there. That is enough to get me through the darkest of moments and the toughest of days.


It’s the way he looks up at me when he is nursing and how he holds on tight to my necklace each and every time.

It’s the way he furrows his brow when he finds something new. 

It’s the way his crazy hair sticks straight up off his head. 


It’s the way he smiles. Oh, how he smiles. He is so joyful 90% of the time and it is impossible not to jump in and be joyful with him.


He is my sweet boy who is so full of the little things. The little things that make my heart whole and makes me want to fall to my knees and thank God over and over and over for giving me this little miracle. This little boy who makes my world dance and makes me be a better person. 


Oh, how I love the little things. 



Thank you thank you thank you God for these little things. 

Thanks to Ashley Jess for the link up!

What are the little things that get you through your long days?

  9. Kristin, love love love meeting fellow mommy bloggers like you! Just in love with you & your blog and your little boy is absolutely precious! What a great reminder to think of all the sweet little things they do that we may sometimes take for granted. Being a mama to my little Lilly (and the other "little" thing growing inside me right now and coming in a few weeks) ;) definitely gets me through the longest of days! Love being a mom!

  10. I have only one picture on the wall in my family room and I look at it every day. It says, "The most important things in life aren't things". Your post is a perfect compliment to my philosophy on most everything. Thanks for sharing pictures of your cute guy and your feelings!
