Random smiles

Things that make me smile randomly during the day when I think about them:

How Matthew likes to climb on my lap to sit and talk. It is like time stands still for me and I just enjoy those moments deeply.

The glee in M's eyes on Sunday afternoon when he could shed his socks and put his feet in the sandbox AND the grass. What pure pleasure!

When M says "I love you" at night right before he goes to sleep. He also imitates me and says "Night night, momma" when I leave the room.

I love in the morning when he wakes up I can hear him thumping around so I know he is up. This morning he came with the usual blanket but also Bluesy his stuffed doggie and his pillow. He laid in bed with us until it was time to get up which was nice.

How much he likes his 10 minutes of Angelina Ballerina & toast with jam first thing each morning.

His excitement over an fake egg with a pretend duck hatching in the water on our counter top. He wants to see and touch the egg first thing each morning and last thing each night. This morning he laughed with such joy to see almost all of its beak and one black little eye peaking out of the shell.

How hard M hugs and how if I lay my head down he will kiss my neck or shoulder just because.

Aw, so sweet! That picture in your sidebar still cracks me up. :)

My 4-year-old nephew likes to give really hard hugs. He squeezes as hard as he can, and that's your cue to say, "Look at how strong you are! Must be all the milk you drink!"

Even though it's not quite grass/sandbox weather here yet, my kids have taken to running outside with no socks on - it's the first time there has been no snow on the ground in months!

How sweet!

I love thinking of little things like this throughout the day. Makes me miss them less but more all at the same time. Know what I mean?

Melissa ~ Yes I do know what you mean. Makes me teary eyed a lot but that could be just the pregnancy hormones!

Lori D ~ Matthew has been positively itching to get his clothes off too. He was taking water and spitting it like a little whale and said he wanted a pond to play in!
