They are my favorite children in all the world. I love them dearly, and not a day goes by that I am not thankful for them. [you know what’s coming next, right?]
There are days when, after I put them to bed, I let out a huge sigh of relief. At last, I am my own again. Someday I will miss the constant needing, but today, I am relieved it is over for another day.
These pics aren’t from today, but these are my babies. The “two in one bed” was discovered one morning after they had been told that they needed to sleep in their own beds [naturally]. They were all cute, though, so they probably didn’t get into any trouble.
My youngest had a thing for rocking. She would bounce her left leg up and down to make her carrier/car seat rock any time we would go places. Wait-staff would come from all sections to see the rocking baby. She used to flip it over on it’s back and then giggle like a crazy baby. Once she kicked just right to flip it back upright. We still laugh about that one. I think she was just as surprised as we were.
After she got too big for her carrier, we got her the rocking chair you see in the picture, and more than once, she refused to sleep in her bed and insisted on the rocker [especially when she had a cold].
The fact that she fell asleep ‘reading’ a book makes me so proud. I’m fairly certain we have pictures of all three ‘reading’ books as babies and toddlers. My seven year old is actually reading them for real now, which is really exciting for me.
Yeah, I love ’em. And they’re all asleep now, so I have time to remember how much.
