"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience." Gordon B. Hinckley, 2006

Last the best of all the game....

My youngest child has the ability to take me from cranky to euporic in zero to ten seconds. I basically just watch him and smile all day. Maybe it's his age, or maybe it's just his adorable personality, but it seems that he is perfectly incapable of doing anything wrong in my eyes.

Sometimes I feel guilty as a mom, because he can do something, and Brian and I will laugh and think it's the funniest thing, and then Joey and Isabel will do the same thing, and we'll frown and tell them, "That's not funny." (Example: Will loves to fake burp all the time.) I guess it's because he's not old enough to really know better, and he doesn't do things to get attention. He's just little and cute and does whatever.

Plus, Will is still totally a mama's boy. He loves to sit on my lap and cuddle. He's not in a hurry to get down. And he still believes my kisses will fix anything.

He'll often tell me and Brian out of the blue, "Guess what I just remembered??? I wuv you!" It melts my heart.

Yesterday he climbed up on my lap and started rubbing my arm. He said, "I wuv you Mom! I wuv you because you always give me wots of hugs." I thought at that point I just might never let go.

That kid is soooo cute that you could just squeeze the pudding out of him.

Just store in your heart the precious moment of each day at this stage..... because you'll need it when he's a teenager and he drives the jeep through the fence into the back yard and knocks down your two favorite flower bushes in the process....

I remember when Mimi was about this age, she'd reach up to hug me from her bed and say, "I wuv oo!" I miss that! It makes me sad & wistful how quickly their littleness passes. I like Sherdon's comment.

He is adorable! I can see how you can't be cranky with that face....Maybe it's being the baby that does it. My baby is the same way, and he is such a momma's boy.

What a sweet boy! Send him over here. Mine all are elbows and knees, and not fun to cuddle any more. Too jointy.

Little Wil is adorable. I can't believe that he is already that big, I remember when you had him. Wow time flies!

He is adorable. I also wish mine would not grow up and would stay this size. Love them while you can.

Each one of your kids are so sweet and I love them. I think you do a great job of equally writting about them. They are lucky to have you as a Mom you are so pacient and loving.

I found a great new palce for pictures! I want to do just your family or just your kids or something! I think I could do better!
