Warmed Heart Week 7

There were so many wonderful, heart-warming moments over Christmas that it was hard to pick only one to share.

Oddly, this is the one that kept coming to mind.

We have a little tradition of going around the dinner table and everyone sharing their favorite part of the day.

Since our youngest Grandson, now 2 1/2, has learned to talk we've added another tradition to the tradition...

...and that is that everyone shares their favorite word of the day.

Our Grandson consistently uses the same word.  

Every single time.

Without exception.

At Christmas, though, we all thought he would pick another word.

When it was his turn to say his favorite word he held one chubby finger up to his little lips and said, "Hmmmm..."

We all tried to help him along.

"Is it the tree?"

"No," he stated firmly.   "Hmmmm..."

"Is it the family?"

"No," he repeated.   "Hmmmm..."

After a few more questions and a lot more "Hmmmmm's" he finally told us his favorite word.

With a joy filled smile he finally informed us that his favorite word of the day was...

"Bunny!"


Even though it was Christmas, he remained true to his favorite word.

And the memory of this still warms my heart and makes me smile.

I like this one, Jenny.
Rabbits are cute, even if they do like ours. Ours has been eating the Pansies that we planted before Christmas. He especially likes the two beds in the back yard although he does eat some from the front two also.
Rabbits are protected in our subdivision by deed restrictions as all other wild animals and birds.

I can see how Bunny is his favorite word. I feel like I'm being hugged when I say it. :-)

That's such a cute story. I wonder if Bunny will still be his favorite word by next Christmas?

ADORABLE! We have wild bunnies in our yard. Everyday I ask Hannah's dog Leo, are you going to catch one this year? He just runs out the door after them in the summer, winter, spring or fall! Have a great weekend.
