Because of You

Ashton,

Because of you I'll NEVER see these things the same again. These now have special meaning in my heart, as I'm sure to those that know you well too.

Prayer - Prayer is an amazing thing. But seeing you pray. It's opened my eyes. You are so passionate about it. You thank Him for Jesus first every time. You thank Him for family and ask for things... not for yourself, but for others. Your observation on who needs prayer is amazing. And you always seem to start dinner prayers right before your daddy and I sit down so we have to scramble to the table to pray with you.Then when you say "Amen", you always say "Yay God!" right after. It's adorable!

The Moon - Since you "discovered" the moon for the first time, you've been smitten... or rather obsessed. You look out for it every day or night and get so excited when you find it. Like it's there just for your amusement. And it makes you so happy. Like you have a best friend watching over you. You have to point every time and say "Look, the moooooonnn!" Therefore, I started telling you "I love you to the moon and back" just to incorporate your love affair of the moon. And when it's gone for the day, we tell you it's shining over China.

Chapstick - Many a chapstick you've ruined from putting on too much. You beg to wear chapstick. You need it, and think everyone else should too, so you make sure I wear it constantly. I always try to find ones that aren't tinted or are clear to avoid messes. You shouldn't have them, but they make you so happy and really do help your chapped lips during the cold season.  You are always ready to wear it and would rather put it on yourself, but put up with me putting it on you as you keep smearing it on over and over until you've made a mess. Then you immediately lick it all off. You don't even wear it for a minute!

A Fox - This love affair is so adorable. If I could get you to meet a red fox in person, I'd do it in a heartbeat. You've gotten quite the stuffed collection of toy foxes! My favorite is you picking out a small toy fox for your Daddy on Valentine's Day for him to keep in his car to think of you. Then you decide after you've given it to him that the fox, which you named Peanut, would be cold in the car and lonely, so you basically stole him and have slept with him every night since. You love to say that your favorite 3 stuffed fox toys are a family. That Peanut is the baby, Fegan is the daddy, and Sassy is the mommy. It's so sweet! They're in your bed with you every night. Along with a few other specially chosen toys. And of course you go bonkers over "What Does the Fox Say?" song, still to this day!

Green - Your favorite color. You're always excited when you get a green straw or spoon, or anything. You point it out every time. It gives you pure joy! I think St. Patrick's Day will be a fun day for you every year! I don't know if you have a favorite shade of green yet, but so far any shade will do. There isn't a green you don't like!
