AND NOW…THE FIRST PAGES (click illustrations to enlarge):
Your tiny image took my breath away.
A precious baby with nothing to hide,
My sweet, little son nestled inside.
There’s just something about a boy…
since around month five,
Waiting for the day
you’d finally arrive.
Stuffed animals, blankies,
your daddy’s first glove–
They sat in your room,
awaiting your love.
There’s just something
about a boy…
My Thoughts ~
This is an adorable picture book that was tugging at my heart strings. Maybe it is having all boys in the house and seeing each of them at different stages or maybe it’s just a touch of seasonal affective disorder hitting that caused the tug on my heart. Either way, I adored this story as a parent of boys and J loved having it read to him.
