Month of Memories - December 5th

Today I am not remembering something, but rather had a memory made.  Today I received my first unsolicited "I love you" from one of the boys.  Of course it was from Andrew, my super affectionate one.  People have told me repeatedly for years "You'll love being the mom to a bunch of boys.  Boys sure do love their mamas."  Well, I must confess I really haven't been "feeling the love" the past few years.  I mean, yes, we have a very loving home and I know the boys love me and I feel their love for me, but most of the time, all that is expressed are the obligatory good night hugs, kisses and "I love you"s.  Andrew has become very demonstrative in the last few months and frequently wants to be snuggled or hugged or kissed.  It's very sweet.  But today was the first time I ever heard an "I love you" without someone being asked to say it, or it being done out of habit.  How sweet it was. :)

I'm catching up on your blog, and what a wonderful picture this is! I agree that you are *even* better looking now than when you got married. Love to you all,

My dad says it's the love of these boys that makes me beautiful. Maybe so. :)
