I Love My Children

My heart always spills over with love for our children. But it's no secret that I've been having a hard time liking some of their actions lately. Sometimes, in the most tense moments, I have to repeat over and over in my head, "I love my children, I love my children, I love my children."

As a result of the rough times we've been having, I am aching to be reminded of their little personality details that I love so much. It's therapeutic in a way, to take moment and focus on all of the good traits that have been put on the backburner in the midst of the war in our household.

Five Reasons I Adore Blake:
1. His memory and attention to detail blow my mind. He can recall a location that we visited two years ago by seeing the parking lot.

2. The way he scrunches up his nose when he gets really animated about telling a story.

3. He can focus on one task for great lengths of time and he'll sit on my lap and read stacks and stacks of books with me.

4. He gets Nash to laugh hysterically in the moments when I don't know how to distract him.

5. He absorbs knowledge like a sponge. It fascinates me to hear him sound out words. He wrote his name all by himself for the very first time this week (after working with his disinterest all summer, he decided to write it on his own).







Five Reasons I Adore Nash:
1. From the minute his feet hit the ground each morning, he runs. I love how quickly his little legs move trying to keep up with his brother, and how he waddles from side to side in the process.

2. He delivers pairs of shoes to the right people when I announce that it's time to leave.

3. He talks. A lot. And he says the cutest words. Bate=Blake. Bup=Book. Syuck=Stuck. Yucka=Sucker. I could go on and on. Man it's cute.

4. He only likes books that have flaps on each page for him to flip open. He tosses the less "hands-on" books aside.

5. I could kiss those cheeks all day long.

  1. Nashy, these pictures are SO beautiful. You are doing such an amazing job capturing Blake and Nashy #2's childhood. What a gift these photos will be to them (and their future wives, hahahaha!) when they get older.

    Also, I make the same kinds of lists for myself about Seba sometimes :)
