As he was sitting on the sofa listening to the morning sounds…

“Those birds play that tune every morning! Summer!”

Yesterday morning the little guy wanted to tell Ryan something. I knew that Ryan was on a flight to California, so I suggested that we send him a text that he could read once he landed…

Last night when I was snuggling with the little guy I asked him who he thought he would play with at school tomorrow.

He replied, “Josiah.”

I replied, “I am happy to hear that. What about James and Jaiden.”

“Uh-huh, ” he said.

“Oh, any what about Lucy and Emily?” I asked, thinking I should add in some girl names.

“You know I play with Lucy and Emily,” the little guy chuckled.

“Yeah, you’re right. They are cute,” I said.

“Emily is the cutest.”

He actually has a “cutest” out of the girls.

My heart melted.

And, Emily is VERY cute.

She sat in my lap when the teacher read a book when I visited their class last year.

Lucy is VERY cute, too.

home is…getting into my little guys head and heart when there are no distractions.

Early this morning when he came to snuggle…

lg: “Mommy, do you bet that outerspace is as far as a billion?”

m: Half asleep, but reminding myself to remember what he said, “Yeah.”

lg: “Me too.”

This morning when baby girl and I finally woke up and made our way downstairs…

“Where’s my sweet Lola?”

When he sees her, “There’s my sweet Lola! Can I give you a hug?”

After he hugs her he makes a space on the sofa next to him and says, “Do you want to come up and snuggle with me?”
