Remember a while back, in post #501, I said that post #500 was a special one and would come back to it...well, here it is:
Can't believe I've written over 500 posts (yep, there are lots not published yet)!
Last night as I was putting Oster to bed, I was going crazy. He was jumping off his dresser onto his bed, jumping up and down, not wanting to sleep.
I was holding Parker in my arms, so I couldn't really lay the law down if you know what I mean.
Pepe wasn't around to help, so I was about to loose it...
As Oster was jumping up and down on his bed, laughing with a huge smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye...
Parker busted up laughing...out of no where...he couldn't get enough of his brother being wild...he just kept laughing
A deep down, hearty laugh...you know the one that makes your heart melt.
I just stopped and took it all in...
I tried to take a mental picture of this short, crazy, wonderful, precious moment in my life.
It will never happen again...that's it...take it or leave it...make what you want of it...enjoy it or __________ (fill in the blank).
Being a mom is so life changing...really puts life in perspective...
I go crazy a lot, but I'm really trying to just soak it up... and remember this will never happen again, so take it as it comes and make the best out of it.
Here's some mental pics I want to remember:
*"I Love You" - says this a million times a day
*"Can I watch a moobie" - again, million times a day
*Dance party maniac - loves his music
*Loves to direct music (his hands are always moving)
*Loves his brother to pieces...really thinks the world of him
*Honest...he can be sneaky, but will always be honest
*Loves to cuddle
*Love to laugh and smile...he's a happy baby
*Loves his mom
*Loves his food...he takes after me
And, I don't talk about him that much here, but I really do love my my husband...he works so hard for our family! Life has thrown us some curve balls in the past few months, but he is there keeping me going when I just can't handle it any more.
New Year's Resolution #2 - soak up life...take more mental pictures and enjoy my boys (all 3!) because this will never happen again!
(about an hour after Oster finally went to bed, I walked by his room and he was fully dressed for they day, he wanted to go outside and play even though it was 11pm..."snap")
