My Bright Light!
Trey is quickly becoming a big boy right before my eyes. It is amazing to watch him learn and take on new things, and although I am so proud of him in everything that he does, I desperately want to make time stand still- at least for a brief moment. He has started calling me "Mommy" instead of "Mama", and even this small change is emotional for me!
He is in a toddler bed now, and although Night 1 was a complete and total disaster, every night since then has been perfect. Sometimes I don't give him enough credit to be able to adapt so easily. This afternoon, I knew Trey and Carrington were both tired, so all 3 of us went into Trey's room, and he climbed into bed, while I sat down on the floor next to his pillow. I started humming a song and rocking Carrington in my arms. About 5 minutes later they were both asleep, and I was in such awe at how perfect these small little moments can be.
This evening, Trey- once again- melted my heart and gave me the bright spot in my day. My sweet baby "big" boy is going to make a great Daddy one day- he takes the daddy responsibility very seriously! He put the baby doll in a diaper (which you can't see), put her in the highchair, got her toys, and then fed her- all without my help or encouragement. He kept saying "Dada-Sister-Trey-Baby". This precious routine almost made me cry!
I've been blogging far more than usual these last few days, but I want to document these memories the very best that I possibly can! Enjoy!
