Since we are already half way through the week, and I have written every post about my cute little family, I have decided to dub this entire week, “The Week of My Peeps!” I enjoy sharing a little bit of my favorite people with you all, as well as giving them a little shout out.
Today brings me to this handsome young man. Donovan is our 1 and only boy, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Honestly, I do not think that I ever had the capacity to share my heart with another little boy, as Donovan has filled it all up with all of his Son-ny Goodness! God definitely had the right plan in mind when he sent me this tiny 7 lb 13 oz bundle of wonderful!
He is in his Freshman year of High School, and one thing I will say is that I never worry about him “finding his way.” He has that great mix of Ma & Da, as he calls us, that allows for him to know no strangers, and hang with the best of them! Weight lifting and football are his vices, and he has passed us both in height. I do not know what he thinks that means, or if we even care that he is taller than us. Doesn’t change a thang, Son!
Donovan is so much fun. He keeps us laughing, and sometimes makes us crazy, but he is always the life of the party. The little sisters adore him, as he is the source of their entertainment. There is always a bunch of commotion when they all get going.
We are so excited to see what the future holds for our boy. I know GOD has got big plans for him. To Infinity & Beyond, Young Man! Mama loves ya!

Deep Thoughts with Kellie: I mentioned yesterday that it is important to give your children QT, even when you may think that they think they are too big or too old for it. I have vowed to at least once a month take time to plan a “date”, if you will, with each one of my kiddos. It will be something that allows us to make those little inside joke memories, and something that maybe one day, they will share with their own children.
Do you plan one on one time with your Littles, or even your Bigs? Something to think about….
