this Songza playlist, but it's just not the same. So l thought I'd brighten up a dreary January by sharing my sweet boys with you.
The weather has been up and down and all over. It's calling for a fair bit of snow tomorrow, so my fingers are crossed for a snow day. Even if there's school, at least the boys will get some more snow play - they love it. And those sweet little red cheeks when they come inside! They're so perfectly kissable.
There is one boy in this house who is SO excited for Valentine's Day. Phillip has the most open, loving heart I know - he just plain loves everyone. (Which, of course, makes this Mama proud.) And he loves love! He doodles hearts, doles out hugs and kisses, and writes sweet "I love you" notes often. He started working on Valentines for his classmates today, but was disappointed that they didn't have the word 'Valentine' on them. He'll be modifying that, I'm sure. An example of how dedicated he is to Valentine's Day - he kept every Valentine that he received last year, and has reviewed them regularly through the year. They're tucked away, safe and sound. That boy has a big heart.
This character is so. funny. He loves laughing, being startled, and tickling. He does not love ladybugs. Uncharacteristically, he's kind of terrified of them, which is pitiful. He adores anything soft, and has been calling the soft blanket, below, his 'cat nest'. He wraps up in it for naps and at bedtime, almost completely. He is so sweet and cuddly, and loves to climb and BANG! and SQUISH! things together. All of that hard work wears him out, and he sleeps soundly.
