this year

I'm being dramatic, but I need to start keeping track of my children again. I want to be able to look back at these posts and remember their little personalities when they are teenagers and I am longing for them to need me again:).

Right now, Parker is so independent.  He desperately tries to be big, but at the same time, wants to be little.  He still wants three stories at night and won't go to sleep until I give him his blessing.  Sometimes I feel like we are so caught up in our day to day activities and I cherish these moments.  He still loves country music and knows every word to songs that I have never heard before.  Right now, he wants to be a construction worker and has been helping us paint, sand, and anything else while we are working on the house.  He is thoughtful, joyful and faithful.  He sometimes dances like a fool and often doesn't listen, but I love him more every day.

Rowan is a firecracker.  She was using the toilet periodically, but since we have started renovating the bathrooms, she has no desire.  I guess I should be grateful considering we only have one bathroom in working order right now...in the basement.  She is still such a mama's girl and is the best snuggler.  She loves her babies and is constantly playing mom to something or someone.  She is sassy and joyful and treats each activity or errand as if it was her idea.  She has no fear and loves to swing as high as she can.  She is my baby goose (parker's name for her), and I love her so.

I just wish I could get days to slow down and truly take a step back from all of the chaos to enjoy every moment.
