Missing Joshua

Joshua hasn’t changed too much! He’s still cuddly, but taller. Ha! Ha!

I still remember that soft little neck and kissing him there often.:)

Since Joshua has been home he has tried to spend equal amounts of time with everyone and I do appreciate that. He even tried to spend the last few days at home with us. I’m already missing him and he leaves tomorrow.

I feel truly blessed that we had this short time with Joshua during his Christmas break. I got to cook, do his laundry, mother him a little, and crochet with him a few times and that makes me very happy!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and Happy Crocheting! Love you all and will talk to you next week.


  1. I was just thinkin about that soft little place on baby necks that i too love.
    We will miss you Joshua!!!
    I have had some fun with you during break. You make me laugh! The card game with grandpa & grandma Kingery will always be a special memory for me.

    • Jackie,

      Yes we did have a good time kissing on his neck and pretending to bite on his ears. It seemed like those days would never end and now it’s time for him to go back to New York all on his own. He’s happy about that, so I’m happy too. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Love you,

  2. Love those precious pictures.

    • Susie,

      I’m so glad that I have the pictures, it helps.


  3. So much fun! It looks like the feelings are mutual. 🙂 What a blessing to have Christmas break together!

    • Mindy,

      Yes, it was very nice to spend time with him. Thank goodness we have fun together.:)


  4. Ohhh.. this is so so nice…

    • Pam,

      Thank you for stopping by to comment. I do appreciate your comments.


  5. Tamara,
    I love to see your pictures of you and Joshua and of John with Joshua. So glad you had this visit and shared it with us!

    Safe travels home, Joshua! We will try to take good care of your Mom and Dad.


    • Steph,

      Thank you so much for being here. I don’t know what I would do without you and I don’t want to find out.:)

      Love you,

  6. You guys are so cute. xo

    • Pam,

      Thanks, I think you are so cute too!!! I miss you.

      Love & Hugs,

  7. This was such fun, traveling back thru time with you — and going right up to the present. Some sweet, some silly pics …. just like the 3 of you (sweet & silly). I enjoyed this so much, Tamara. You are in my heart, knowing about that “missing him already” feeling. Aren’t ya soooo glad for computers & digital cameras (& phones too!)?!!! 😀

    • Kat,

      You are so right, Joshua is so silly and we have always went along with whatever Joshua did. When he was little, if he was under the table his Dad would crawl under it with him. His Dad is going to take his leaving a little harder this time around. And yes I am so thankful for phones and computers. Cameras are good to capture all those moments that I can’t be there with him.

      Thank you for stopping by and I love all of your comments.


      • Awww… sounds like you & John are both going to be needing extra hugs from each other after Joshua leaves.
        When will Joshua visit home again????? 🙂

  8. Tamara, these pics of Joshua, John, Jennifer and you are just so special! Thank you for sharing all of them with us. It is hard I know letting go and yours and John’s closeness with him is very tight, which just makes it harder I’m sure. I’m like Kat though isn’t technology wonderful? Helps to keep him close.

    Love ya

    • Barbara,

      Thank you so much for stopping by. I know how busy you have been with your gourd art. I’ve missed all your encouraging comments.

      Love you,

  9. Those 2 guys are peas in a pod, aren’t they?

    • Cass,

      Yes they are. And they are too stubborn to admit that they are just alike and they make me laugh. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Love & Hugs,

  10. It was so good to see pictures of your family. I still remember the time somebody was chasing Josh and he came running up from behind and grabbed me thinking I was you. That was so funny and I enjoyed the hug
    Love to you

    • Sue,

      I remember that incident too. That was so funny. We are both about the same height and when you’re that small all the legs look the same.:)

      Love you,

  11. whaaat? i felt like this incident happened recently as well – the one sue was referring to. maybe not. mayhaps it was with someone else. i’ve looked at this particular post a few times. i quite like it. my favorite is the one with jenny and i because i am so impressed that my sweater has a cat from the simpsons on it which i am sure neither you or father knew. wahahahahahahahha.

  12. Joshua,

    I hope you haven’t grabbed a woman in New York and thought it was me? Ha! Ha! No, I didn’t know the cat on your costume was from the Simpson’s. I know your Dad didn’t either. hahahahahaha

    Love you,
