It couldn’t be more gorgeous outside today. Just as September is coming to a close, we get a super-sunny, high-of-84 day. I love the season changes when you never know what you’ll get – cold and rainy and thoughts of frost or full-blown reminders of summer.
My six-month-old is sitting next to me in the sunshine and she is scooching forward – almost crawling! I literally want to bottle up this time with my little ones and save it. I am trying to sit and be and soak up the days as they come – sunshine, clouds, rain, frost, crawling, walking, cuddling.
A few nights ago, I was putting my 22-month-old to bed and she had her head on my should as I recapped her day. I went through all the activities of her day and when I got to the end, I said, “You had such a good day. It was a really nice day.” She was quiet for a moment and then she said, “Beautiful.”
