heart & soul


Please let me remember...

Your soft, pudgy arm as it brushes against my face while you sleep.

That little-curly-fuzzy hair on the back of your neck, and how it is the softest possible thing in the world to ever kiss.

How last night when you were falling asleep, you started to sneeze and made the funniest noise instead. When I laughed, you tried to make it again & again to make me laugh, making yourself laugh so sweetly, too.

You look up with those big blue eyes in admiration of your older brothers. They make you laugh more than anyone else. You already try to wrestle with them- all 17 pounds of booty-scoot-crawling baby, you.

… I find myself willing my mind to tape-record every moment; I don’t want to forget. I feel confident that, although I may not recall every specific detail, my heart is being shaped by these moments, and the memories are there forever on my soul.

  6. Ok, I'm bawling now.. happy?! So beautiful. It's amazing how fast these moments are passing and while I long for yesterday's moments sometimes, today's are always my favorite. Don't forget a thing.

  13. I wish there was a way to remember every little thing. I think you're right though, those details will always stay with us.

  14. Ohhhhh, I sure hope I CAN remember those "little" things after this last one comes! At the time, it seems impossible to forget, but then those chunky hands start holding frogs, and we don't really like rubbing them against our faces anymore!

    And that downy fuzz turns into spikey flat tops....

    Sigh.....just wish those moments could be held on to forever (or at least stored in a hope chest for when they're all out of the house!)
