Another joy of being a mom is hearing, "Mommy, I wuv you" from a very "wigglish" (her word) McKenna. She is just the sweetest thing. Her squeaky little voice and angel face are enough to make me smile all day!
And Samuel...he loves his routine. He loves to go to bed at night, but not without his snuggle time. He lays his head on my shoulder and I can just feel his little body relax completely. A year ago night time was still stressful with him. He went to bed easily, but staying asleep was an entirely different matter. Now, his bedtime routine is a joy for me--I look forward to it every day. The great thing is that he seems to look forward to it as well.
Chris. What a guy! He's so excited to spend an entire day with all three kids every week while I'm in class. He absolutely loves it. He smiles when he talks about how not every dad gets this opportunity. I smile because not every daddy would want this opportunity. Even today, when Anna was puny, Chris was up early (!) to take care of her and get a jump on his favorite day of the week. THAT is a joy as well.
I am so blessed...
