Slices of Heaven

Slice of Heaven #1

A couple of weeks ago, I was running to the store for a quick errand, with Finn buckled in the back seat.  As I drive to the store, I hear the sweet little voice say, "Me love you!".  Precious.  There was a time I never would have heard that and missed this little sweet moment of joy.  Without my cochlear implant, this little moment of joy is one I never would have heard.

Slice of Heaven #2

Today, Finn was hanging out with me downstairs.  He's my little shadow and always wants to "go downstairs with you".  We had to go upstairs, as his mother and siblings were getting ready to go spend the evening with his grandma (my sister).  As I gave him a hug goodbye, I heard, "I'll miss you."  Ahhhhh.....  So sweet and touching.  I wasn't even sure I heard right at first, until I saw his mom's expression.  She too was touched at his sweet pronouncement.  :)

And just because I adore him, I'll share some recent pictures.  I had a cute video I was going to post, but apparently, it doesn't work for some reason to upload it here (I tried 3 times).  Oh well.  I'll just share my pictures then!

The picture below is one of about 20 that Finn took by hitting the button on my iPad as he wanted a picture.

Speaking of slices of heaven, the next picture is the one I love! :)  He often snuggles next to me and lays his head on my shoulder.  It couldn't be any sweeter! :)
