"ahhfly for Sisa"


Noah and I made a last minute
birthday cake supply run to Hobby Lobby Thursday.
As you might imagine,
Hobby Lobby is not Noah's favorite place to shop.

As we carefully made our way through the isles,
 keeping little hands inside the cart at all times,
something blue caught Noah's attention.

For those of you who know my son well, you might assume
that the "something blue" must be Thomas the Train.
but, Noah exclaimed "Mama, Get ahhfly!" "Sisa fowers."

For those of you who don't speak Whale or Noah,
let me translate.
"I want the butterfly Mom, and flowers for Sister."
I can't believe I didn't break down crying
right there in the middle of the store.

I try not to give in
and buy Noah whatever he wants when we shop,
but not this Thursday.
We got the ahhfly
as well as some little pink flowers Noah chose.

While Noah napped,
I wrapped them together and added a note for Sisa.
I think they turned out OK.

Oh how I love that! Noah wanted to do something special for Amelia Grace and he knew specifically what he wanted. Good mama for indulging him this time! Thank you so much for sharing that with us today!

I love these little collages that you do. I love Noah talk :) and I love the butterfly and the flowers, how sweet and thoughtful of Noah to get them for his baby sister. So precious our little ones are.

The tears would not stop when I read about Noah (happy late b-day) wanted "ahhfly for sisa." What a wonderful child who loves his sisa so much. My "fram" always sang my sunshine to us. In fact when she passed away that's what we sung to her. My fram loved her grandchildren and great grandchldren and her Kids Place kids so much. I always like to think that she is holding little Amelia. Love you! Kay
