Things I want to Remember

As 2012 draws to a close and we look forward to a new year, there are things that I always want to remember. Especially years from now when my kids are grown.

I want to always remember

- the way Gianna says Mommy. With the sweetest little voice. Or when she wants something the way she says Mom-ME with a heavy emphasis on me.

- the way she does a little shimmy and dance when you ask her if something is good and sing yummy in your tummy

- the way she asks to watch Bubble Guppies by saying BuBuBub

- the way Ethan falls asleep, always with a big chunk of my hair in his hand. As if he can't bear to let go

- quiet nights at home cuddling wih my babies

- Ethan's gurgles and coos. And his smile and laugh when you tickle his chin

- Gianna's toothy smile. There is nothing else that brightens up my day more than her sweet little smile

-watching Gianna love on her baby doll. She's such a happy, loving little girl

- watching Ethan smile at his sisters antics.

- watching Gianna run around the house. There is nothing sweeter than hearing her little feet pitter patter around the kitchen

- the way Gianna runs to me and stretches out her arms to be picked up and her hugs.

- Ethan as a baby. Time flies by so fast and before I know it he will be a toddler like his sister

I want to hold these moments close and never forget them as the years go by.

  1. These are all wonderful moments. :) Happy New Year, Katie! :)

  2. What a sweet reminder of the little things. I have a 4yr old daughter and I forget to pause and take in those sweet moments. She won't be little forever and her innocence will cease as she grows. Thank you for reminding me to enjoy her like this :)

  3. This is such a neat idea. I might have to steal it!! :) It's amazing how many of the little things that fade with memory, but those are the things that I really, really want to remember!!
