This happened yesterday afternoon. But by the time I got around to blogging anything, my head was in a different place.
Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on the couch crocheting while the boys played and Zoey napped. Alex randomly came up to me and gave me a hug and said ‘Momma, you my best friend.’ It was the sweetest, heartwarming moment.
He then went to his brother, hugged him and said the same thing, and then to all his toys to do and say the same. I console myself with the fact that I was his best friend first. Even if ultimately he came back to me and told me I was ‘mean mean mean’ for not letting him have cheezies and chocolate pudding for supper. When I asked if we could still be friends I was told ‘No momma. Meanies not my friend’ Hmph. I’ll remember that next time you want something.
Did anyone else notice Christmas is less than 4 months away? I did. But only because Alex is going to be three on the 29th of December. Where does the time go? My babies are all growing up so fast. I needed to go buy Alex a whole new wardrobe yesterday. He fit in 2T clothes last week. This week the pants were over his ankles and I needed to go get him everything in 3T. Nick did the same thing from 18 month stuff to 2T and Zoey jumped to 6 month clothing. These kids are crazy in their growing. I wish there was a pause button!
On another note, Nick is talking a lot more lately! He has been saying Momma, Daddy and Alex for quite awhile but the other day he finally said Zoey! And he asked to be excused from the table. He is nowhere as talkative as Alex was at his age, but he’s getting there! He seems to be jumping from garbled words to 2-3 word sentences (where are you?, where go? etc)
And, saving the best for last (and as a mom who cherishes her sleep, this is the best!) Zoey sleeps through the night! I didn’t even know it was possible for kids to do that before a year old! Alex was almost 2.5 before he started and Nick was 14 or so months! And they still wake up at night once in awhile. Zoey has been sleeping through the night for the last 2 weeks. I was scared to say anything in case I jinxed it. I figure this should last until she starts teething ha ha!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
