For Family Home Evening last week we made crowns. Then we each got a turn to sit in the white chair and listen to the other members of our family tell us what they love about us. It was so sweet to hear Eddie tell Peter that he loves that he's walking now. We all got some pretty special hugs. I couldn't resist putting up these cute pictures.Peter put the sticker on his crown. He loves playing with stickers. You can see in Eddie's eyes that he feels pretty special.
Peter seems to have a special love for escaping (unscaping, in Eddie terms) from his diaper changes. He runs away and hides usually behind a chair, the couch, or the side of my bed. He sits and waits for me to come find him. He just giggles and giggles. He loves hiding in general and will stay patiently in a hiding spot until I find him. Finding him once isn't enough, though. He likes to be found again and again and again.
Peter had his first haircut on August 22. I was tired of his hair always looking out of control, so I cut it. He sat on Ben's lap, eating treats and never cared that I was cutting his hair. Now his hair is shorter, but it still always looks crazy! I learned that he must have some sort of a callic at the center of his head. Those hairs always stand straight up. At least it's not in his eyes anymore, though!
Ben proposed to me with a song he wrote about making a beautiful life together. My life is more beautiful than I ever imagined it could be. This blog is a record of our beautiful children, Edison, Peter, and Creegan. Their growth, accomplishments, and personalities. "It's a beautiful life. We've made a beautiful life. We'll make a beautiful life."
