Today I told Conner that he was cute. He said "Mom you're always cute!" I love that most days I feel crummy about the way I look or I am too hard on myself about what I ate or the number the scale said. But to this little boy...I am cute! And tonight, Conner went swimming with his uncle while I stayed home with Braxton. When he got back he ran and gave me a hug and kiss and said he missed me. This little 3 year old boy has no idea how powerful his little words can be! I love him!

My Boys

I am so in love with these two boys! They are my world and the reason that I am alive and breathing today! They drive me crazy some days and push my buttons and test my patience, but they also make me learn, grow and want to be a better person all at the same time. They are so opposite from each other, yet have so much love for each other.

 My most favorite time of the day is in the morning. We are all sleeping in the same bed right now and Braxton will wake up first. He always smiles the second he sees me awake and comes and climbs onto me. Then he will go and smack his brother until he wakes up. Then they lock eyes and both of them go crazy inside (I can literally see this happen) and they start to smile at each other, connect in some way and start making noises at each other. Conner always says "It's a good morning Bubba" and Braxton always smiles back at him. I love this moment and I love that I get to see it happen each day! They truly love each other and that makes me incredibly happy! 

These boys keep me on my toes every day! Conner loves to look on Pinterest on my phone and find something fun to do and I do my best to create some version of what he wants to do. He is very cautious and is slowly starting to try new foods and new activities. Braxton is crazy! I call him a crazy animal a lot. He is so adventurous and outgoing. He is messy, dirty, loud and all boy! He is also an excellent eater and I love giving him new foods to try and seeing his reaction. These boys are total opposites, but I love them both so much! I am one lucky lady to be their mother!
