That's what everyone is doing and I'm helpless to stop it. I know, I wouldn't really want to. The future is something I look forward to. Weddings, grandchildren, and seeing the fruits of my current labors. But today I just want to push the pause button for a moment, or two, or more.
There have been a lot of "firsts" in our home the last couple of weeks. Bri made her first Bishops Chocolate Pie last week, that is one of those recipes that is something like a rite of passage for girls in my family, right up there with rolling your first cinnamon roll and making your first loaf of bread :). Tori went out to check the mail by herself for the first time and a few days ago she delivered a note to a neighbor, they are right next door and I watched her the whole time, but still ;). Bethani is growing and learning every day, her latest accomplishment is being able to feed herself with her fork. Now for the one that will make all mothers who read this ecstatic for me, Andrew slept through the night...twice out of the last three nights. And here is the part that will make most mothers who read this throw tomatoes...I don't like it at all. Since the birth of our second baby I've recognized those late night feedings as precious bonding time. With all of the busyness in the day time I actually look forward to the night wakings that ensure quiet time with Baby. Alas, it seems those times are quickly coming to an end...until about 5 months from now when our babies start waking up two and three times a night again ;). So, perhaps I should focus my efforts on catching up on my sleep before I find myself in round two ;).
