Their little squinty eyes…the promise of a new day…being surrounded by my tiny friends.
We have a song that we sing every morning at breakfast.
A made-up little diddy.
“It’s gonna be a great day! A great day! A great day!
It’s gonna be a great dayyyyy! Hallujah Praise the Lord!”
The big two sing it at the top of their lungs.
Cade only sings the word “day” at the appropriate times.
And at the very end of the song we all do a fist pump with a loud “woooo!”
Perhaps a bit spoiled.
I love making hot breakfasts… pancakes, french toast, muffins, etc.
I bought a box of multi-grain cheerios this past week.
I hadn’t slept well the night before and was having a slow start.
I suggested we just have a bowl of cereal for breakfast.
It tickled me when Colt said “cereal!? What a treat!!!”
And Emma deemed it the best day ever since we were having cheerios.
The boys relationship lately reminds me of two little bear cubs.
They’re constantly tangled up rolling around.
I love watching their little flailing limbs and hearing their tiny laughs and growls.
Each night before bed the big kids and I read a chapter from a book.
Our current read is “Little House on the Prairie.”
I’d say it’s been their favorite chapter book we’ve read so far.
Every one of our family members has been renamed.
Travis is Pa, I am Ma, Emma is Mary, Cade is Baby Carrie (poor thing),
Roland our dog is Jack and Colt is Albert (from the tv show).
They have taken the name changes seriously.
When he prays for us at meals or bedtime he refers to us as Ma and Pa.
As I sit here typing up this post little Eloise is busy moving around in my belly.
Some sort of little body part (I’m thinking her heel) keeps poking straight out.
I love rubbing the little bump that keeps popping out!
It’s a miracle to think that in just a short time that little heel will be in my arms!
I had just finished cleaning up from supper and had started to make a batch of cookies for the next day.
When I told him cookies his little face lit up and he dashed off to tell Emma the great cookie news.
Savoring each moment…not missing anything.
But making sure to write down even the simplest memories.
Make sure to get your posts ready!
