Oh, Summer. Why did you have to go away? And when did I start talking to myself? I can answer that... when I was stuck inside the house for what seemed like forever with a sick family. The sudden change in weather brought upon the usual coughs and colds but they lingered a little longer than usual this time. Let's just say sleep is a very precious commodity in this household at the moment.
I know I haven't been recording bit and pieces as much as I used to. I honestly thought being at home would mean more time to write down our family doings but it hasn't been the case. Anyway, right now I have some time so here are some things I don't want to forget...
... like when Grace sings along to the Frozen songs in the car or when she watches the movie (then proceeds to tell us to stop singing when we sing along. Grace of course we'll sing with you when we've listened to the song for the 1,293th time.) Her little singing voice is something I want to capture, wrap up and keep in a box forever so I can listen to it when she's older and remember the joy and sweetness
... or how Xavier laughs when you nibble him right under his chin. A laughter volcano. Jackpot
... or how I know Grace is in Xavier's cot reading because Xavier won't stop laughing in delight
... or how Grace claps anyone whenever they've gone to the toilet. I guess it is a celebration
... or how Xavier seems to think everyone is playing 'peek-a-boo' with him. He really is my happy boy... or how I love how sisters know when to call when I need it most. Thank you
... or how patient my little brother is. He's going to make such an amazing husband and father some day
... or how my father opened up to me about work
... or how my mother is so so so so so so talented. So talented
... or how my mother-in-law came to stay for a few days and saved me from losing it. I was that close
... or how my husband is so raw. So real. So honest. I really need it
So yes. I really don't want to forget these good things.
