Not much out of the ordinary has been going on in our little house. Just the regular family life with a 2 year old who does not like to go to bed and an 8 month old who is learning how to make her way around the house and into corners full of crumbs in the blink of an eye.
The kids love to be in whatever room mom is in. There is usually a scene like this in the afternoon while I am preparing dinner. Axel has babies or cars (or both) strewn about, and Autumn is mopping the floor with the front of her shirt. She also does her fair share of playing with cars.
May and June have been tough months, like the few before that. But looking into the eyes of my sweet babies helps me remember the reason I am doing all of this. They are such a precious gift to us. Sometimes, though, the best gift is the two of them napping at the same time.
