Sweet Boys

I'm gonna take a Johanna break for today.  Tomorrow I'll get back to the rest of the week, and getting that all documented for my sake.  But, I got the best picture last night, and just had to share it.

Since, I had somewhat major surgery just a little over a week ago, Chad has had to do almost everything with Clayton.  Not that he minds of course, but I'm still fortunate to have a hubs that is capable and even better willing to do all of these things when I just can't.

Last night we went to dinner with my brother and SIL.  We had an amazing time just laughing at our ding dong waiter(he really was quite special), and enjoying all the silly things that Clayton manages to do.  Clayton fell asleep in the car on the way home, which is quite unusual for him.  When we got home, and Chad got him changed into his PJ's, he was having no part of going to bed.  Which is also quite unusual for him.  He normally goes to bed very easily.

Chad decided to read him a book.  That's not something we've started before now.  There's no particular reason why we have not been reading to him at night, it's just not been part of the bedtime routine.  While they were reading I was getting a few things together for church today.  When I walked back by Clayton's bedroom, this is how I found them.

They surprise me and make my heart melt every single day.

the memories of seeing our boys together is one that is locked in! I have the same visual at night and it really is a melty moment!

have you found that you are loving these moments and memories that much more because of the missing? I think it's that bittersweet of joy and loss...and it really does make us love deeper, enjoy the ride of parenthood better..and yes...we wouldn't change a thing about it. Talk about obedience! So proud of you! loveu!
