I wanted to begin a blog just to share thoughts about life and ideas for the home that I come across with family and friends. I am hoping that you find inspiration and maybe a smile or two from our experiences in the Gage home. We brought little Ethan Wayne home in August and life has taken a very busy but wonderful turn. I want him to have the most wonderful childhood that I can possibly give him. He has already made our lives so full of meaning, and I want him to always know that he was number 1 on my priority list. For the last two months, I have only been away from him for all of maybe 3 hours. During those hours, all I did was think about my little man. I had left him with Daddy so I could go to a Dr appointment. I saw all the women with their babies that never seemed to be around before I had my own child. I am amazed at how many kids I see now! I look at two year olds and wonder "is Ethan going to be that much of a handful?!" He already is proving to be somewhat of a handful. He is the most well tempered baby if you are holding him. The minute I set him down he seems to know that Mommy isn't as close as he needs me to be :) So usually I hold the little guy most of the day and the minute Daddy gets home he gives my shoulders and back a much needed break. That is when I try and have a little creative time just for me....along with getting the house picked up and doing the laundry that looms (least favorite chore).
