Tiny Handprints

One of my favorite things to do is hold Logan in front of the mirror and let him tap his hands at the reflection of himself. He jabbers and laughs and looks from himself to me and back to himself and smiles. We do it almost everyday and I was starting to notice how dirty my mirror was getting. I was going to clean it, but I remembered when I worked in Preschool I loved to do see art projects with this little poem with a painted handprint next to it:

Sometimes you get discouraged
Because I am so small
And always leave my fingerprints
On furniture and walls
But every day I'm growing --
Much bigger every day
And all those tiny handprints
Will surely fade away
So here's a little handprint
Just so you can recall
Exactly how my fingers looked
When I was very small

Needless to say I had Josh take a picture of the mirror before I cleaned it. Sometimes the simple things, like looking in the mirror everyday, are the important things in the end.

I feel the same way Tiff! So cute. My little nephew left his hand print on my front window back in Provo- It was so cute and perfect. I left it there for awhile just because I liked to look at it and remember the times he was at my house! I'm glad you got a picture of yours!! :)

I've always loved that poem. Thanks for the reminder to be grateful for the little things. When I'm picking up toys all day I'm not always thinking that it's because I'm blessed to have two sweet children in my life. We are so lucky!

Tif, you are so right. Little things do mean a lot. Love, grandma Wood

Maggie has never been a real kisser until this week. But when she was a little babe, I would hold her up to the mirror and she would kiss and kiss and kiss herself until there was drool running clear down the mirror. Do you have a drool poem? :-) Logan is seriously the cutest thing I've ever seen. I adore his smile!
