Decided I need to be more grateful so I made this post for myself-
#1: I love how Jake eats a cracker and tries to put it in his mouth only he drops it, gets a confused look, and searches for it until he remembers if he cries I will get it for him.
#2: I love Sean's reaction to Jake getting his stinky diaper changed. He gets a disgusted look on his face and says, "ah Jakey, poopy! ah, jakey!" It's quite hilarious.
#3: I love how Sean lines up his animals and dances in a circle around them singing, "EiEiO."
#4: I love when Jake watches people and smiles and laughs until you say one word to him and he cries.
#5: I love how Sean likes things tidy and does a great job cleaning up.
#6: I love when Sean pours water on Jake in the tub! He's such a helper.
#7: I love when the kids take a nap at the same time.
#8: I love when I told Sean to sing Jake to sleep one night they slept in the same room. He sang to him forever and when Jake finally got annoyed by the hundredth round of EIEIO he started crying. When I picked Jake up to rock him, Sean looked so relieved. Funny stuff.
#9: I love when I go shopping with Sean and hold a shirt up to him and he says, "Nuoooooah" in a funny voice!
#10: I love when I go in to get Jake from his crib and he smiles so big and starts kicking with excitement.
I love MY BOYS! They're my life. I took them to their 6 month (a month late) and 2 year appointments. Sean's in the 90th for height and 50th for weight and Jake is in the 75th for height and 50th for weight. Big boys. Sean just sat there the whole time while he got his check up. Such a big boy. They're quite adorable!
I am grateful for Sean and Jake, and of course, Mike. I listen to this song by the Motab called "where are you going" about a child growing up. "You turn around and he's two. You turn around and he's four. You turn around and he's a young man going out the front door." Time goes by so fast and I just want to hold on to these moments with my boys forever!
