Things I Love

Things I love: an inconclusive list of things I love about my family and
random other things that somehow got in there:

Time and cuddles with my husband. The quiet at 8 p.m. when the kids have
gone to bed and I get to be with Page.

Kisses from Eli, one on the forehead, one on the right cheek, one on the
left cheek, one on the lips, and one on the chin……..whenever we depart
from one another.

Tickling necks at night before Hezekiah and Eli go to sleep. I
especially love the hug and kiss I receive from Hezekiah each night.

When Maggie Beth wakes up in the morning and lets me wrap a snuggly
blanket around her and cuddle her with her head on my shoulder.

That my sug loves me and greets me with a hug and a kiss and when we
depart waits for me to kiss him, never in a rush to leave without one.

The belly laugh Maggie Beth gives me when I tickle her with my hair and
when her brothers chase her.

Watching Page tickle, wrestle, and love our children.

Peanut butter M&M's. Vanilla yogurt and a plain crossiant.

Teaching Hezekiah to read and watching his little mind work and the
funny questions he asks me about the story or the words.

Watching Eli color and work on his master pieces.

Seeing Maggie Beth walk around, toddling. Those little legs just moving
back and forth. How she says belly button, "bewwy buttin" and lifts her
shirt and points to it.

The way my Eli talks and says his r's, l's and w's.

That my husband gets up at 5:45 a.m. each day so he can be home early to
be with me and our family and that his work allows him that opportunity.

How Eli sucks his thumb and loves his britches.

When Hezekiah gets so excited about a new toy and grins from ear to ear
and jumps up and down.

When Eli says, Huggies! Meaning he wants hugs.

When Hezekiah talks to Maggie Beth and his voice gets higher, and he
says, "Hey little girl."

When I hear the words from my family, "I love you, honey, mommy, or
whatever nickname I have at the moment."

Hezekiah has washies, little washcloths that he has had since he was a
baby. I love watching my children sleep and seeing them with their
babies (stuffed animals, washies, britches, etc.) It is so adorable.

Sneaking kisses.

My Adriondack chair, my frames, my little red table, magazine rack, and
banana holder. All things Page has loving made for me.

Hot showers.

Maggie Beth's curls.

The way Page holds my hand.

Snuggle and reading time in the white chair before the kids go to sleep.

My husband's pictures he takes of our family.

(more items to be added later!)

Just some items that I love and never want to forget!
