Some more Disney....I need a dose of magic these days as Q is getting over an ear infection, I had a touch of food poisoning and poor Gracie is still hanging on to some Pneumonia. I feel at this point that God really intended for me to be a nurse :)
You know what I love about these pictures? Look at the layers come off as each day it gets a bit warmer...... It gives me a little giggle, and giggles in themselves can be all the magic you need sometimes!
They love each other so much! It is so sweet to watch them care for each other day in and day out. No one could have prepared for me for the love that would pour out of these two for one another. I thought that since they are five years apart and different genders that maybe it would be a bit like raising two only children in the same house. I was wrong and I couldn't feel more blessed, happy and overjoyed at the love I get to see each day. Look at how she helps her little brother over the snow to show him off to all her friends on the playground. It was a great way for him to feel special on his birthday. All the presents, cake and birthday happenings in the world couldn't replace this special lunch we had with Gracie that day...it was priceless and something I think we will remember for years to come. As well as something we will repeat next year. I guess the best present is a little extra time with big sister :)
Last weekend we discovered new ways to combat the winter blues. It was a very fun time at the Discovery World Museum. Q was without the stroller and had a blast from start to finish. He isn't in many pictures due to the fact that he was very busy exploring the museum usually with Auntie Kayla in hand. Gracie of course really enjoyed it all as well. I think the picture of Gracie and I in the reflection of the round mirror is one of my favorite pictures of her and I. The best part was I was just there trying to see if what I wanted to do was going to work and she jumped in right at the perfect time. We have decided that this event was so fun for all of us that we will continue to scour our city for ways to fight off the winter blahs once a month.
I can't believe that he is 3 already. I really thought that 2 would never end....really I was terrified!! Every year when my children turn a year older I become a Hodge-podge of emotion. I feel slightly sad because they are getting older and getting further and further from being my little baby and closer to adulthood. I feel happy to see them move onto a new stage and happy to watch the growth in many different ways. I feel a little sentimental as I look through their baby scrapbooks and wonder where the time has gone. But, most of all I am happy to see them experience life!
So happy birthday little man! I hope today is a good one.
