When Tony was gone I s'pose I had some void to fill in
my life those two days- so I took an obscene amount of pictures of my boys. I basically documented the days sun-up to sun down. And technically they weren't anything special- just normal days. I don't think I'll be doing this for a while (who am I kidding). I need therapy. Haha. I mean, on our California trip someone asked me, "is that your baby?" - I look at hyrum - "uhh... yea-... Oh. Oh, you mean this." (looks at camera)
-the fact that I actually had quarters when we went to the store and he got to play the games
-seeing the biggest grasshopper of his life
-begging me for saltwater taffy all day and usually winning me over
-eating what I call "kid lunch". i.e. junk food that doesn't seem so bad because every kid is eating it
-swimming in his baby pool I pulled out of storage (even though he said he's now too big for it haha
-getting to take a whiz outside
-enjoying his playset in the mild weather
-wearing his rain boots (even if every other time he puts them on the wrong feet...he'd wear those everyday if he could)
-getting in a better routine with my boys. I feel better about life when I make time for things that matter and less time with things that don't.
-Brody doing the "i love you sign" right for the first time. I wasn't even expecting it and he's like, "Mommy! Look!" He used to have his ring finger and pinky up and the other two down, lol
-watching Brody pretend to be a plane- and having my camera on him while he did it. His imagination is so cute at this age
-watching hyrum enjoy puffs outside in his highchair... and the neighbors not giving me too many weird looks.
-that leaf that fell in the pool and reminded me fall is approaching.
-sunflare- taking pictures, hello.
-actually having quarters so I didn't have to say, "sorry Brody..."
-putting Hyrum to bed the last night and coming out to Brody who was passed out like that right outside the door. haha! He loves that shark towel
-taking him out of that freezing pool water (lol, poor kid.)
*excuse the scratch on Hyrum's chin- he tried to be a hero and stand up with a cup in both hands. Down he went and the cup sliced him pretty bad. It all happened so fast...
