It wasn't till a friend e-mailed me and said she had shared my blog that I remembered, "hey I have a blog.'
I also thought about how much I hated it when I would start following someones blog and then they would dissapear! I'm sorry- I didn't mean to, things have just been very busy. I also think the change of seasons is making me extra sleepy!
The above pic is of Harrison- smiling! Harrison was our eyebrow furrower, camera avoiding, frowning little man until recently. Now he has the most addicting smile and the best giggle. Last night we had the boys giggling at the same time- it was the most incredible parenting moment yet! They're doing good eating solids. We haven't really been pushing it too crazy, they've had rice cereal, carrots, peas, bananas, avocados, apples, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and squash. They've like pretty much all of it. The eat dinner every night and soon we'll add in another serving.
Brian and I were talking tonight about how much being a parent changes you. I never realized how much love I was capable of giving until now. We were talking about how if a child needed a home we wouldn't even blink. I now have such a stronger sense towards humanity- I always wanted us to be better but now I really want us to give a damn. I find myself shaking my head more often and being dissapointed with people more than usual. Priorities have shifted as well. I was at my favorite little clothing store and I didn't buy anything, I couldn't believe myself. Yet, I don't think twice about buying the cutest, the best, the funniest, etc for the boys! This doesn't mean I don't care about myself anymore- I just enjoy shopping for them more!
Fall has always been my favorite season and this year is all the better! It's a privilege to snuggle two warm little bodies in a cozy blanket with candles flickering and apple crisp smelling up the house! Good night- sleep tight!
