These are the things that bring me much delight right now as I navigate the great adventure of motherhood.
Reece~ Snuggling up with her after I nurse her and allowing all Babywise rules to be drowned out by the sweet giggles in her dreamy state. Speaking of which, what exactly do infants dream about that causes that wide grin or occasional whimper?
Audrey~ Not an issue that she was just bathed, dried and dressed in her jammies, she decided to join her sister again in the bathtub, fully clothed. She is in that adorable state between curious toddler and challenging two year old. I love this state, she is trying her darndest to be just like her big brother and sister.
McClaine~ I love that he is emulating so many of Caleb's manly character traits, the love of tools, work and dirt. Although he frequently forgets to talk in his big boy voice. I also love his protective nature over his three sisters, and Zipper, the dog.
Avery~The girl is in a constant state of ensemble awareness. What outfit would best suit this exact situation? She really does change clothes five times a day. What tickles me is that she is keenly aware of my attitude about laundry, and so most times, she will put the outfit that she is finished with away. How very kind is that? She is also marvelling us with her helpfulness. The other night Caleb asked her to get diapers and pajamas for Audrey and McClaine, she brought him the diapers and when he inquired about the pajamas, she said, "I am getting them in the same order my mom does, diapers first and then pajamas."
