Wearing My Heart on My Sleeve...

I love tattoos and more importantly I love my tattoos.Everyone I have means something very special to me and I am fortunate enough to not have any that I regret.Of course I wanted to get a tattoo for my daughter when I found out I was pregnant with her,she's 2 and 1/2 now and I finally was able to do that.

Luckily my friend Jamy said it wouldn't be fair to only get the one for Heidi and offered to do one for my son too!So to anyone visiting or in Indiana,should you wander through the fields of corn and end up in Franklin please so see Jamy Carlton of The Great American Tattoo Company,her and her boyfriend are both great artist and I am so thankful to Jamy for adorning my arm with my little tributes of love to my kiddos.

I know I should be a good girl and wait till these are totally healed before I show them off (I just got them done Friday) to do them justice but I'm just so thrilled with them that I'm going to show them off now!

On my upper arm I got a Kewpie doll for my daughter.I've always though Kewpies were darling and my daughter has always been a living doll to me.Even as a newborn she was adorable and no I'm not just saying that cause she's mine,even the doctors and nurses that delivered her all commented on what a pretty newborn she was.This kid had my heart from the start.The first thing ever said to her was "Oh!I love you!" as I burst into tears.

Wayland is 4 months old now and though I didn't have an idea of what I wanted for him when I was pregnant with him I did know I wanted something but it'd have to come to me as I got to know him.In the 4 blessed months that my lil guy has been in the world one knick name I've had for him that has stuck is mama's kit kat clock.

I call him that because he doesn't like to miss a thing and he keeps his big eyes open watching the world fighting sleep as much as he can.I love to watch him as he nurses himself to sleep,his eyes move back and forth like a kit kat clock ,becoming smaller and smaller till they're closed but all the while continuing with that back and forth motion.Instead of numbers on the clock I had Jamy replace them with hearts cause no matter what the time,day or night I love this kid.
