Sleeping babies

Yesterday I spent a blissful hour rocking Brooks. He has not been much of a cuddler since he was a baby, and I can only count a few times that I have rocked him while he slept (since getting older). This was a wonderful time for me - knowing that I have so few of these times left.

This morning, a fever rose it's ugly head, and explained why he granted this rare siesta. I have started him on antibiotics today, hoping for some clearing by this weekend. Cousin Sophia will be here and we have some major playing to do!

Kate and I enjoyed our girl time today at church. Afterwards we went out to eat, and called it our girls date. She is just getting so big everyday. I don't like it.

Here are some funnies of late:
  • (talking about her new bear, Spots) "Mama, Spots is not a boy or girl. Spots is just a bear."
  • (while with Daddy learning to ride her new bike) "Daddy, God and Jesus are angry." - no further explanation.
  • (working with workbench) "Mama, can you help me wrench it? I just can't wrench it!"
  • (just talking) "Daddy, I poop for treats!"
  • "Mama, Brooks is avergating (aggravating) me!"
  • Brooks always says, "Thank you welcome"

We have a sick baby here too. :o( She has been in her daddy's lap for three days - she is normally a mommy's girl so this was odd...Hope he's better soon.

I took my oldest to Pizza Hut after the after Xmas shopping on Friday and we had a lunch date. I want them to stay little!

Hope your baby gets feeling better. I still rock my almost 2 year old to sleep, just because it's the only time he will let me just hold him and snuggle! Your pictures below are adorable, I can tell you love bishop dresses as much as me!

This post brought tears to my eyes, for several reasons. Katy is also not much of a cuddler, except when she's sick. There's nothing more heart-wrenching than a sick kid, except for one that is growing up WAY too quickly. Seeing them grow so fast sure makes every little special moment both sweet and sad, and I just want to hang on to those moments forever! Happy New Years to you and Scott and the kids and the critters!

I always ask Jenny if I can rock Noah to sleep, even when he's not sleepy. I need the rocker with a baby more than the child, it reminds me of the times with Jen {teardrop}
