Ok, I have suspected it for a while, but it is official, Sam is a daddy’s girl. She was ready to go to bed tonight, I was making her a bottle and dad handed her over to me. She cried for daddy and reached out for him. He was so happy that he asked her for a high five, which she gladly obliged…. Daddy’s girl!
Sam got her very first pair of shoes today… and they are pink 🙂 I tried so hard to be anti-pink, but she looks so cute in pink, especially in her new tiny shoes.
While watching the UNC v Maryland game this afternoon, I whispered to Aidan “say Go Heels” and much to my surprise he did (prior to today, dad had convinced him he was a DOOK fan). So, I rushed to the phone to call Brent and Ali so that Aidan could share his new loyalty… when I whispered in his ear this time, he said “Go Duke!” Will keep working on Go Heels!
During the hustle and bustle of getting 2 small children in the vehicle while it was pouring rain on Wed morning, something really funny happened. Rushed Sam out to the car, then Aidan with shoes and socks in hand (for whatever reason he likes to put on his shoes and socks in the car seat… we call those “smallies” in our family). Because it was raining so hard, I jumped into the back seat of the car to help Aidan get “socks on” and “shoes on” only to realize after shutting the back car door that I cannot open it from the inside… those good ol’ child safety measures that you forget about in the moment. So, I had to climb over the DVD player and car seat to get out of the car. Aidan and Sam were both laughing and Aidan said “stuck!” as I struggled to get my legs over the seat.
I was sharing this story with my mom, a very wise woman. As she laughed at the story, she said that I should remember these funny moments b/c children grow up too fast and then you get old and cannot remember those funny times.
Now, I am not old, but have become increasingly more forgetful now that we have 2 little ones running around, so I decided to create this blog to help me be more reflective about our family. It is so easy to get caught up in the day to day aspects of life and not take time out to laugh and be grateful for what we have. I hope that one day Aidan and Sam can read through these posts and laugh at the memories with me.
