We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

Thing that I love!

I have been thinking about my life and my kids lately and decided that I spend way too much time focusing on the things that I don't like about my kids (their whining, complaining, messiness, etc, we can all come up with a lot of those) and not enough time thinking about the things that I love about them. So here are 10 things that I love about each one:

1. I love that he is so smart
2. I love that he still likes to give me hugs, snuggles and kisses (how much longer do I have?)
3. I love that he is so sweet to his brother and sister (They have their moments, but when he's sweet, he's the sweetest!)
4. I love how he gives Grace and Dylan hugs and kisses before he leaves for school (Grace doesn't let him leave without it-again how much longer?)
5. I love his smile
6. I love how he is so concerned about doing the right thing
7. I love his energy (and wish I had some!)
8. I love how he is so helpful
9. I love how he is so responsible (as much as a 5-year-old can be!)
10. I love my big boy

1. I love that she is my little princess
2. I love her hugs and kisses
3. I love how she tells me that she still loves me "as much as ever" (quoting Strawberry Shortcake!)
4. I love how she can play by herself for hours at a time
5. I love her crooked little smile
6. I love how her eyes smile with her
7. I love when she sings
8. I love how she knows when she does something that makes Heavenly Father happy (and sometimes sad!)
9. I love that she is so bright
10. I love that little girl

1. I love his goofy grin
2. I love his long eyelashes (and secretly covet them!)
3. I love his giggles
4. I love to kiss and tickle his cheeks, tummy and toes
5. I love how he sucks his little left thumb and snuggles under my chin
6. I love to just watch him
7. I love that he is starting to understand when I talk to him
8. I love when he wrestles with Grace and Jesse (it's so cute!)
9. I love his little lion cub growl
10. I just love that little boy!

What do you love about your little ones?

Wow, that pic of Dylan on the beach looks so much like Ben to me--am I wrong?! Can't wait to really know your kids one day. I just remember us always singing, "When I grow up, I want to be a mother, and have a family....1 little 2 little 3 little babies of my own."...remember that?
