it happened again

i was looking at gus this morning
and it hit me 
just like it did with henry
i know his face
i always have
his strawberry hair
his blue eyes
and his sweet lips
oh those lips
he came right through me
and settled in my heart 
like he has always been there
and he has 
my sweet gus

reason #355 i love stone

he went out of town for two weeks and upon his return presented me with this mug
who needs flowers when you can have a cow mug perched atop teets?
obviously it was his knack for romance that swept me off my feet all those years ago....

a place of his own

with the arrival of sweet baby gus
we thought mr. henry needed a new room of his own
i wanted him to have a place to hang out
and perhaps sleep....
if he ever feels so inclined
(and for the record he has yet to feel 'inclined'....our bed is so much more cozy he says)
i had planned on putting an old map of indiana on this wall in his room
but when i found the world map above 
i couldn't pass it up
i think it adds the perfect touch of whimsy to his space
and after all....
the world really is his playground

it's great
things are great
there is sleep
not a lot of sleep
but there is sleep
there are adventures out and about
not a lot of adventures
but there are adventures
there are visitors
lots of visitors
except for that time when everyone in our bungalow had the plague and no one wanted to come near us
but there are visitors
there is teamwork
stone and i are an awesome team
except for that time when i woke up to nurse gus and got a bloody nose and was yelling for stone (who was sleeping in the bed next to me) for help and he didn't hear me until the 14th time i yelled his name because he wears earplugs to sleep otherwise the humidifier keeps him up all night and when he finally woke up he ran and snagged me two simple squares of toilet paper only once he actually looked at me and the mess that was my face/hands he realized i needed a whole lot more than two simple squares
but there is teamwork
so's great
things are great
