david and the sandbox

May 9th | an everyday moment

David loves playing the sandbox–LOVES it!  I love it too, because he’s not destroying the house or Matthias’ newest lego creation. And apparently, he’s building up his immunities with a little sandbox snack time. Can you see that little smile on his face? He was so proud of himself! Guess what he wanted to do when I found him all sandy like this? Give me great big kisses! And of course I let him–right after I dunked him in the bathtub.

  5. Lisa, the other day when I was reading one of your posts my heart just overflowed with love for your David. I just kept seeing him as you probably do as his momma…happy & whole. He’s such a treasure! You are blessed.

      Oh, thank you Sarah! He has such a big place in my heart–and I love sharing it. I sometimes wonder if others see him the way I do–past his disability and into his soul. He is a treasure.

    The third photo is by far my favorite – something in that sideways glance and in his beautiful eyes looks like he is thinking about whether or not youre going to let him hug and kiss you when he’s covered in sand (and he looks like he’s going to try it anyway!!)

    What a gift you have in his beautiful soul :)

  13. Sara says:

    Thanks for making me smile. What a sweet, sweet boy!

  17. Kelleyn says:

    Wow! He really enjoyed himself. That’s the best part of being a child. :)

  18. Oh, Lisa. You can see the absolute joy he’s feeling in that sweet face of his. “You have to eat a peck of dirt before you die!” My kids ate sand, dirt, and unfortunately, a few other things….. and they did all right!

  19. jessica says:

  20. Nikole says:

    Precious! I love it! I have four boys and this is what they love to do also!!! He is such a cutie and a blessing!!!

  21. Jennifer says:

    At our house we call the eating of the sand “internal exfoliation”. Heh. Thankfully they figure out super quick how yucky sand in the mouth is :)

  22. Meghan says:

    These pictures are so sweet. I love reading about your sweet boy!

  23. EG says:

    He looks quite pleased with himself!

    Oh, Legos. We’re just getting into it with a new 5-year-old.

    Your comment about wondering how other people see him touched me…I think all mothers feel that way about their children…. I (feel like) I know exactly what you mean….it hurts to think that not everyone does see our children the way we do…in this case… your love for him is so evident that I hope it makes others look a little deeper…and “really” see him…so they don’t miss out.
