Just You and Me Baby6:46 AM
The fast pace of two tiny ones makes me live for those pockets of time where I get just one of my boys all to myself with no distractions. It happens surprisingly less than I would have expected, but that makes me appreciate it all the more. I live for those moments when it's otherwise quiet and we get each other's undivided attention. It's rejuvenating for us all and helps us recenter.
Last week we got to take Milo to the DoSeum in San Antonio just by himself, and I couldn't get enough of watching the wheels turn in his mind as he discovered every new thing. And yesterday, we chatted about dinosaurs while we did his sticker book for a whole, quiet 45 minutes. He let me sit nice and close and I was in heaven!
Otto and I have these moments too. We check all his tickle spots, play with all his toys, and bounce around the room to our hearts' content. It's in these moments when I realize how divided my attention and love is with two babies, and how special it is to have these connecting moments with each one individually.
I love my boys together and I love them separately! There are so many facets of this family dynamic- the boys together, Trevor and me, Trevor and them, each boy with one parent, each boy with both- and we are building and growing these relationships all the time. Family is a beautiful thing!
