he shoots me and he will shoot you too.

my sweet hubs gave me a fun project.... at least i'd call it fun. you see, i love to write. not in the forming of paragraphs & ideas kind of way. just in the drawing of letters & numbers kind of way. i've always studied other people's handwriting and i'm constantly working to improve my own. there's just something about creating the perfect "a" or getting the curve in a "j" just right that gets me going. i could fill out forms all day. go ahead & say what you're thinking - weirdo. and since you already said it, i'll go ahead and share this with you as well...it always drove me crazy when teachers would write on the board with poor handwriting. and if they only partially erased the board - i could hardly stay in my seat. the tip of the "l" that had not been properly erased would drive me insane for the rest of class. and i know i'm dating myself - we had chalkboards in school. not whiteboards. not smartboards. good ole fashion chalkboards. sometimes i even got to go outside to clean the erasers, clapping them together forming chalky clouds.
anyways, back to the project...

the contact info for his site...

i may have gottten a little sidetracked...

..baby daddy..

dear fabienne...
you are so blessed to have a daddy who loves you so much..
he cried with me when they took you from us at the hospital..

he comforts you at our many trips to the doctor's office..

he clipped your nails for the 1st time when mommy was too scared to..

he helps feed you.. even sometimes by osmosis..

he sings you silly songs & holds you til you're asleep..

he has the perfect touch to put you to sleep..

he took you for your first walk when you were just 3 weeks old..

you sure love your daddy..

and i can understand.. so do i.

i'm totally crazy about your daddy..

mister bob.

rode to gram's with mand the other day. the boys liked to 'sleep' like levi & fabienne. when we arrived home, mand told the boys to say bye to miss fabs. "bye miss fabs!", linc exclaimed. and little cai didn't miss a beat, "bye mister bobs!" haaaa! ...the boys have a bit of an issue with he & she, him & her, and apparently miss & mister as well. [and cai always calls fabs - bobbienne.] i love my sweet nephs!

speaking of mister bobs...i'm getting quite the collection of fuzzy phone pictures of my sweet, sweet babes asleep on my chest. but you see, i never, never want to forget how amazing it feels to have my little one passed out on my chest...

her perfect little lips.

her sweet little hands...

her little breaths on my chest...

her sweet little noises...

her warm little body on mine...

i love mister bob.
