I don’t want to fall asleep – I don’t want to miss a thing about these kiddos right now. I need to do a mental brain dump about what these littles are doing that keeps my heart fluttering. 

  • The way H boy makes up words and rhymes them
  • The way Miss M sees hilarity in everything; every time she “toots bubbles” she breaks out in giggles
  • The way Baby C sticks out her tongue. It looks like she’s concentrating. 
  • The way H boy puts his arms around your shoulders when you climb into bed to wake him up
  • The way Miss M does everything H boy does and uses the same phrases
  • The way Baby C will randomly lay her head down – on my shoulder, on the floor, on her high chair…
  • The way H boy’s imagination is taking off. He’s fighting “turkeys” with a broom, being the daddy while asking Miss M to be the Mommy, he tells the girls that “there are tigers coming!”
  • The way Miss M is so proud of herself for getting dressed and going potty by herself
  • The way Baby C laughs when everyone else is laughing, though it’s clear she’s not sure why
  • The way H boy always wants Miss M to accompany him places, even if just upstairs to get his ears & shoes (“You want to come with me?” while nodding his head)
  • The way Miss M doesn’t want to look at you when you’re in the middle of a teachable moment
  • The way Baby C answers “yes” or “no” even with only about 75% accuracy
  • The way H Boy coddles his “baby buckeye” and enjoys changing his diaper
  • The way Miss M will pick up her baby and kiss it on the head after she drops it
  • The way Baby C sees herself as the baby and is constantly climbing in and out of the toy cradle
  • The way H Boy bounds out of school and tells me all about his morning there – where he played, the songs they sang, the snack he ate.
  • The way Miss M asks for “2 ponytails” on some mornings and to wear it down on others
  • The way Baby C becomes happier when you take of her clothes in the evening after a bath. 
  • The way H boy flings himself on the ground while “dancing”
  • The way Miss M asks for David Crowder because she wants to dance and sing.
  • The way Baby C will bob her head along with the dancing siblings
  • The way H boy enjoys helping – getting the salt, setting the table, getting the muffins out of the freezer and putting them in the toaster oven
  • The way Miss M loves to brush her teeth
  • The way Baby C loves to climb on any available stool
  • The way they all look forward to daddy coming home, running around playing chase, asking him to play a little bit longer
