Better When We're Together
I can't seem to get enough of my four boys these days.
Trav and I laugh a lot together. I'm exhausted by the end of the day but when we lay down to sleep I don't want the conversation to end. I look forward to a phone call from him mid-day and of course when the king returns home each night the whole castle is in party mode.
Isaac is leading me through an exciting trail of firsts. Isaac has his first loose tooth. Somehow I find that all of his concerns about the tooth fairy's visit melt my heart.
Theron gives the best hugs and I think he secretly hopes that my arms will get stuck to him when I am hugging him, as has happened on several occasions. He doesn't fight or try to squirm away like Isaac, he just giggles uncontrollably and hugs me back. Sometimes I really don't want to let go.
When my sister Allee was a baby I remember hugging her and wanting to squeeze her so tight because she was so cute. I remember that feeling every time I see Charlie. I eat up every moment I have to spend with him. His smiles, squeals, and sqooshy funny faces keep me feeling young as I roll around with him on the floor trying over and over to get him to perform.
I was asked yesterday what I do in my spare time...I try to fill it up with more and more of this. I love these boys.
We intended this photo to be sent out to all of you along with a Christmas greeting but...time slipped away from me too quickly. If you follow our blog you know all about us. If not...then start.
