Today we sat in church and the kids were on a roll driving me totally crazy. Than I had the most random non-sensical thought I've ever had: hmm... I miss them as squishy cute little babies... maybe I should just have another...
Yes, that was a moment of pure insanity and should it had persisted I would have needed to be committed into a looney bin for a long long time. I guess it was a combination of having missed them while I was away and holding my niece Juliet who is 10 months. It just goes so fast and I'm already missing it a little.
Don't worry though, the moment passed and there will be no more baby cakes or cupcakes to come in our home!!!!!! It did make me decide what I really need in a couple of years is to expand our family with perhaps a 2nd dog. Mackenzie could use a little buddy! And Heaven knows dogs are much easier than kids ;)
The time away did make me appreciate my babies though more. I had missed Harmon jumping into bed and giving me a little wake up and Rachey showing me how pretty she looks in her outfit. I really missed Callum too. He is still the only one of my little babies that still likes to just sit on my lap, be rocked... I love Cally Cuddles! He is just different. Callum is an old Gaelic/Scottish name meaning "peaceful". That is Callum, peaceful. With everything going on trying to catch up and all it is nice to just have a bundle of peace smiling in your arms at you.
