This Is What Love Is...


A little boy with a scrape on his nose, just turned two, running around the park. 

My daughter and Andrew. She is such a great mother, and I am so very proud of her.


This is what love is. A mother and her child. 


This is what being two is. Trying new things. 
Falling down and getting right back up. 


Not a care in the world. Innocent and trusting. 


And whose smile lights up my world.


I love you, sweet boy.

    1. It was perfect. We came back to Israel and his 16 year old son putting up my gazebo. I finally have an outdoor room!

  4. What a darling child, Brenda. Your daughter is beautiful, too. Children are so dependent on those around them, especially those bringing them up, to treat them well, to give them the things they will need for life. Grave responsibility but filled with rich rewards.

    1. Yes, and my daughter, who didn't think she wanted children until after she turned 35, is a natural.

  10. I smiled right back at him through the entire post ; such a little darling. Reminds me of when mine was 2 and good grief he is six now and losing his teeth. Loved every photo ; your daughter is a beauty and he looks like "let me down, Mom, I sat still for 2 seconds, now time is up! "

  11. What a doll, your boy! I mean he is so so cute, and with his cap. My son loved to wear caps at that age. Precious pics of daughter and son enjoying the park. I am thrilled for you. Glad you shared these pics. Sheila
