Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of god
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know its true
You're a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Here's how to join in.

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints. Be sure to link back here so others can find the entire list of participants!
2. After you've posted your blog, sign the MckLinky below. Have fun exploring the other links as well!
Please only sign in if you're participating. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!

The Baby, who's really about to turn 3 years old and is not a baby anymore, is one of those kids that talks so darn cute!
He calls the mailman a "mail truck".
And our mailman comes on foot. But everyday when the mailman comes up on our porch, The Baby yells "Mail truck here!!"

And as with most little boys, he loves cowboys.
We even go to church with a few.
And a cowboy to him is a "YeeHaw boy." Ha!
He loves "YeeHaw boy" movies. He loves to put on a big hat and pretend that he's a "YeeHaw boy" on a horse.

This stage will be gone in an instant, I just know it.
But for now I'm holding on to it dearly. No one in the family is allowed to correct him when he says things like this. :)
We just hold back the laughter and enjoy the moment.

(The picture has nothing to do with his speech. It was just the first one I grabbed. Dirty face and all.)

I think that is the perfect picture to go with your post! He is at that age that is so much fun, I bet it's hard not to start cracking up when he is telling you something!

I love this age! My grandson will be 3 in Nov. and I also love the things he says. I used to run an in-home day-care and the 3 - 4 year old age was my favorite! And you're right, it goes by too darn fast.

He is adorable! I loved all the cute things my boys said when they were little. So glad I wrote some of them in their baby books - fun to read every once in a while.

The Perfect Trio said...

so sweet! Jett calls cowboy's "Giddy-up Boy"!!! How funny that they are almost the same!

Awww, how sweet. You brought tears to my eyes. Happy, sweet tears you get when you think back and remember when your child was a baby. I see my daughter who is 14 now and wonder, how did this happen?...when did this happen? They grow up so fast. Your little man is adorable. I love that stage when they say the cutest things. Thank you so much for sharing. Also, what a wonderful idea... Fingerprint Fridays. Love it. Can't wait to see what others are sharing. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for stopping by. Hope you enjoyed your stay...I know I did here! Have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings and Smiles,
♥Ana

How wonderful that you are recording these special moments before they all pass away. This is going to be so much fun for your family to reminisce 10 or 15 years from now! What a cute little guy!

He is so dang cute-dirty face and all! My son is 13 months and is just starting to say lots of words. He says peas (which means please) only when he wants to or he wants something. My niece who is 4 calls chapstick "Loop" and we all think it is so cute that we don't want to correct her.

Have a great weekend!

Wendy said...

Yeah, but he'll always be Bad Baby to me... Give him a squeeze from me, huh?

The Flying Bee said...

He is so cute! My hubby and I were just saying this morning that we better really cherish these moments with our 4 year old because it doesn't last forever. He has tons of the cutest sayings and we never correct him, either.

Have a great weekend.

So precious! And you're right - it's gone in an instant. I had a 3-year-old cowboy, too. Even had his ID picture for church (big church) taken in his hat and leather vest. It still hangs on my fridge! LOVE it. :) Thanks for the memories.

Julie Harward said...

Vanessa said...

Aww!!! This post really takes me back. I dont have little ones just yet. Me and my brother are nine years apart but born on the same day. He is my younger brother. He was totally into everything cowboy when he was little. He used to pretend he was woody from toy story.. he would put on his cowboy hat, my great grandfathers cowboy boots which went all the way up his little legs and run around the house on his stick horse. Those were the good old days.. they do go by wayyy too fast! Now he is a grumpy 18 year old ha ha.
