Happy Mother's Day!

I just want to wish a very Happy Mother's Day to my mother and to all of the mothers in my life. Mother isn't just a noun, but also a verb defined as "to watch over, nourish, and protect". I'm grateful to all those in my life who have mothered both myself and my little family.

Getting in a little brother snuggle time before leaving for church this morning.

Hi Peter!

Eliot and Peter are continuing to charm and delight. Last week Peter started giving us genuine and very intentional smiles. His eyes light up, he kicks his little legs, and coos. Just adorable. Eliot is pretty impressed with his little brother and enjoys helping out. He rocks the car seat when Peter is fussing, bounces him in the bouncy seat, tosses diapers in the trash and greats him with a friendly "Hi Peter", which he picked up from me. Having a two year old certainly makes you a lot more self-aware. It's like living with a talking mirror.
