I've Written a Book.

Before Ezra was born, my good friend Angel gave me a little gift basket full of all kinds of adorable baby gifts. There was a kit for making plaster imprints of the baby's feet and stuffed animals and things. There was also a 'Make Your Own Little Golden Book' kit that included markers, crayons, stickers, and a blank little Golden Book.

Best. Gift. Ever.

Not long after Ezra was born, I decided to fill that little blank book with the story of our little family.

Ezra was obviously too little to enjoy this book at the time that I made it, but just the other day Ezra re-discovered it on the shelf in his room and he asked me to read it to him. He LOVES it now, and we've read it countless times over the past few days. I ask him what book he wants to read and he says "The Enemy and Chris book."

I thought I'd share it with you.

That is SO cute! And the part where he throws the gummy worm to show he likes you, well all little boys can relate to that!

Where can I buy a copy of this?!! I love it! My BFF says that she fell in love with her husband when he hit her with a rolled up newspaper to kill a bee. There's a lot of magic insects going around!

That is SO cute!! Talk about special.
you're like my inspiration, I can't tell you how long I've wanted to write a little children's book, just for my girls to enjoy and have. I don't have near the talent for art that you do, but at least now I can see it's do-able! :)

The cuteness oozed all over my monitor, and then dripped onto my keyboard. It's smells faintly like baby powder.

When Ezra starts carrying around bags of gummie worms to school you better watch out!
