    I feel you sister. After I had Doodle (now 22 months) I whispered in his ear, “Honey I love you so much. Every woman you know will pale in comparison to me.”  MWHAHAHAHAHA!

    You NAILED it, sistah!  May our future DILs be warned!

    I’m sorry, but he is entirely too adorable.  He is definitely preciously snuggleable (hush, it’s a word now!), and I can understand why he’s your Perfect!

    yes.

    just yes.

    funny, though, i had three boys before i had my daughter ... so my “culture shock” was reversed from yours. doesn’t make it any less true, though wink

    I have two boys and they are all boy, but they are also very much different beings. My older sons has tendencies toward drama and the younger one is totally happy all the time unless he is raging with anger. There’s no in between really. It’s awesome though. I am equally enthralled and exhausted by my boys all the time.

    I always thought that I wanted the pink…and the frills, but then I had a boy and my heart changed. I cannot imagine anything else. The joy, and the tantrums, the sheer unbridled fearlessness is amazing. He is just that amazement of everything in the world that I had forgotten or lost or stuck away in a drawer somewhere…I am so glad that he came here with his dirt and sticks and rocks and reminded me of it all and its glory.

    I love being the mom of boys. I honestly wouldn’t know what to do if I had a little girl!!

    I’ve got 3 girls and I was just saying the same thing about my only boy.  He turned 10, last week.  You said it.  Only, better.

    Oh wow. You hit the nail on the head with this one.

    I’m going to be the worst MIL in the world, because, YES, my boy is perfect and no girl will be good enough for him, EVER.

    Can’t believe I just said that.

    Wow. How I loved this post. Because I now have a son and a daughter and I understand and live EXACTLY what you are saying. What a fantastic, wonderful post!

    It is a relationship unlike any other, isn’t it! I am amazed by it more every day.  And still surprised by the loudness and the fact that EVERYTHING must be thrown or crashed or smashed. Thankfully the new baby is a girl (or so they claimed at the last ultrasound), so I’ll get to experience the other type of parenting as well. And I’m grateful to get to do both.

    These photos are perfect.

    The way you write about your children makes me wish it wasn’t too late for me to have children.

    Having 2 boys (and one girl) you know I can relate.  Boys are perfect…despite their loudness.

    My mother-in-law calls it Perfectly Imperfect =)

  • January 28, 2009

    I totally agree—it’s a simpler love. No more pure than the love I have for my daughter, but more perfect somehow.

  • January 28, 2009

    Both of mine are boys! I am feeling the BOYness, I tell ya!

  • January 29, 2009

    I totally love the new blog- I know I’ve said that before.

    My daughter behaves exactly how your son does. She is loud, growling, and full of the here and now. And Boys are louder than this? Oh my, maybe I will stop with one. LOL
