Best Friends

Griffin's best friend is Greyson. They've known each other since 18 months and are still good friends. They are in the same class at preschool and this week the teacher's lesson was about friends. Griffin and Greyson took pictures together and wrote stories about each other. It's so sweet to see these little babies grow up into big boys with special friends.

Mom's 32 birthday

We celebrated my birthday with a family lunch at Nantucket. The kids were on their best behavior and we had a great time.

SK is 21 months

Sarah Kate's personality is really developing. At 21 months she is becoming more vocal, learning new words and definitely wants everything her way.

SK will repeat words or phrases that she hears. We watch Dora the Explorer every night before bed and swiper always says, "Oh Man", which SK repeats every time. She also is saying: thank you, sorry, I turn (my turn), MINE, mommy, dada, NO, yes and more more.

She is spunky and full of energy, loves snuggling and playing with us. She is doing so well at school and loves being outside. She still loves to eat and is not picky about food at all. SK always wants to play with her brother even though he isn't a fan of that yet.

My Heart Just Melted

A few minutes ago, G started calling my name.  I decided to check on him and make sure he wasn't having a bad dream since he had been in bed for over an hour. When I entered his room, he let out a sweet smile and said, "Mommy."

I laid down in bed with him and closed my eyes, hoping to model "sleep" for him. Suddenly, I felt something gently touch my face. I opened my eyes to see him staring at me, smiling, with his hand softly on my cheek. The look on his face was pure love.

I didn't want the moment to ever end.

I know there will come a day when he realizes how imperfect and annoying I am ... but tonight, I'm storing that moment somewhere deep in my heart.
