I just want to say I love my kids. They are just such a huge source of joy. Of course, they're a huge source of headaches, too...:) But the joy overrides that. I was just sitting here thinking about how cute they are together and how thankful I am that Sophie has Gavin as a big brother. I don't think I could ask for a better big bubba for her. I love overhearing them talking to each other and playing. Yesterday I heard this conversation:
S: "Gavin, do you want to share some of my candy with me?"
G: "No thanks."
S: whiny sounding, "but bubba, I just love you so MUCH!"
G: "okay, sure, I'll share some."
That just made my heart all warm and fuzzy. :) Ernie and I were just talking about how we have two really big-hearted kids, and that is just one illustration to me of how its true. The reason we were having that conversation is I was frustrated how Sophie gets so hurt so easily over any little thing (which sounds familiar...), and he brought up that it is because she is so caring and sensitive and big-hearted. So I guess I'll take the downside of that to be able to experience her sweet caring spirit the rest of the time. <3 What sweethearts I get to spend time with every day!!
