Catch up

It is such a chilly day today. I love it!! I love winter. It is the only time when you can accomodate the temperature to your liking. I cannot believe that it is already time for Thanksgiving, and Christmas is only around the corner. I am almost done with my Christmas shopping. My one complaint is that I wish I had more money to buy the boys stuff. I have so much fun picking stuff out for them.

Sam stayed Saturday night with my parents. We had gone down in the morning after dropping Daddy off at work, and he didn't want to come back with me. I missed him so much on the drive back. Even though he normally falls asleep before we've even reached the freeway, I know that he is sitting back there. I think this is the first time Sam has stayed over since we've had David. David spent the rest of the evening looking for his brother. When Sam got dropped off yesterday, he was quite heartbroken. He wanted to go back with Donna. He didn't want to be here. My heart broke for the poor little guy. I can always trust that he will be okay when I leave him at my parents'. They love on him, there are no psychotic dogs trying to bite him. I just know he will be taken care of and don't need to be constantly worried about him. I don't think I can explain how special my Sam's relationship with my parents and sister is. I love to see that and wish I had had grandparents like them growing up.

David is ever trying to increase his mobility. I came in to the room last night only to find him standin on Sam's bed by holding on to my bed. (Sam's bed is butted up against ours.) I don't know how he managed to do that, but he was quite proud of himself. He is quite a character. He has been having a hard time teething. His upper gum is so inflamed, and it appears that one tooth has slightly broken through. Poor, poor David. It makes my Mom laugh when I ask him if he wants to nurse. He knows exactly what I am saying. Last night he was doing this new thing that just had me laughing. He was sitting on my lap facing forward. He slightly twisted his body around and threw his head back and nuzzled my breast. Then he gave me this look that seemed to say, "Well, what are you waiting for? I couldn't make my needs any clearer." My boys are so precious. I can't imagine my life without them.

I had better take advantage that the boys don't need me right now and fold some laundry. :-( Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.
