Being back to work full time has me thinking more and more about my kids and how lucky we are to have them in our lives. They love us so unconditionally and we love them with out whole hearts. It's amazing the love that you can have for just one child and then to have two and just see your heart BURST with love for the both of them.
I wouldn't trade my world for anything else... It's perfect and I cannot wait to continue to see our love grow for one another as time goes on.
Coen's little smiles and laughs just melt my heart. I can always get him to do something silly that just cracks us both up. Right now, he's saying his animal noises with such enthusiasm and he literally will say anything (or try to say anything) that we ask him to say. Yesterday, I was trying to have him say "sister" to Emie and "brother" to himself. It was really cute and he was trying so hard to say them. His word that he's really loving right now is vacuum, but don't let that fool you, the kid FREAKS when the vacuum comes on. Even the small handheld one immediately brings out this AWFUL scream of fear... It's mildly entertaining and we might turn it on just for the reaction, but not too often.
A lot of people ask me how I get him to say those noises and how I come up with what he says... and I just say that we just make it up and repeat it, all-the-time. I have to say that his squirrel, rabbit, fishy and elephant noises are the best. I'll have to record them and post them so you can see the cuteness.
Emie... OH Emie. She's just the twinkle in my eye. She's seriously so flipping cute right now with all of her coos and smiles. I can see her cracking up in the near future. It seems like those things are happening so fast for her, but I know that isn't the case. For heaven's sake, she's already 2 months old!
And Coen's love for his sister grows bigger and bigger every day. He loves her and you can just see it with the way he looks for her, calls her name out of gives her kisses. It's quite possibly what makes me love them more and more every day. And her reaction to his kisses and love is just priceless. She's starting to realize a kiss is coming and that's pretty cute. Yesterday she still had her paci in and he was trying to give her a kiss. He tried to get to her lips about 5 times before he realized the paci wasn't moving and so he just planted on on the paci. It was hilarious and so sweet.
I didn't think my heart could grow any more after having Coen and being so in love with him... but it did. Oh and when my husband is sweet with the kids and I can hear it without him knowing... I could just pass out with love. It's overwhelming.
My heart is just so full and I love feeling this way.
