Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you are all with the ones that you love today. Speaking of Love...it's another year of Show and Tell and more topics for us to talk about with Andrea at Momfessionals. This time we're talking about our loves. I'm dishing today about the people in my life.
Of course I had to start with Mr. You think you can't love anyone more, and then you have children with them, and your heart wants to explode. He is the best husband and father. He loves his morning coffee and/or tea, and was the one who wanted the soaker tub in our bathroom. Also loves watching football, playing catch with Baby Fox, playing house with Mini Fox and is probably one of the best Dad's I have ever known. He hates bugs and insects and that is pretty much the only thing he hates. He is silly when he needs to be, serious at times, funny most of the time and I couldn't imagine raising my kids with anyone better.
He makes everyday with these kids the best day ever.
He has the most kind and gentle soul. Is the most patient, devoted and understanding big brother. I mean he pretty much melts into a big puddle anytime his sister asks him for anything. He loves night time snuggles, even though in public he refuses to hug me, sucks his pointer and middle finger on his left hand since he was 5 months old, loves anything to do with Legos, swords, and Nerf guns. Loves math and solving puzzles, telling jokes and wresting with his daddy. Can be somewhat of a picky eater (hates pizza, who hates pizza?), but loves broccoli and peas, go figure. He is who made me a Mama, and I am forever grateful.
Her personality matches her birth story, unexpected and fast. She wants what she wants, and she wants it now. She adores her older brother and wants to be just like him. When Mr. and Baby Fox are wreslting, she is the first to jump on Mr. yelling, I save you Coco (what she calls her brother)! Loves everything princess but can also be a tomboy. It's not unusual to find her in a princess dress, with a sword in one hand, Nerf gun in the other doing karate kicks, taking down dragons. She went from sucking on a pacifier and when that went away, she started sucking her thumb, upside down, strange I know. Loves all her stuffed animals, which she has named, and then asks you what she's named them, loves all blankies, which helps us, so we don't really need to keep track of just one. When going to bed, likes us to play her Elsa doll (which sings Let it Go) and wants us to wind up Minnie who plays a different song, at the same time, for every nap and bed time, and will not go to sleep until we do it. She is going to give us a run for our money when she's older, bring it on Mini Fox, we're ready for you!
My Extended Family
I have the best family ever. Being adopted, I can actually say that they chose me, and I am so lucky. I have the best In-Laws and couldn't not imagine having better ones, just wished the lived closer! My parents are the best grandparents and bend over backwards for our kids. The kids love having their grandparents close by who can take them to Karate and dance class when Mom and Dad can't. My brother and SIL, I wish we could all get together more often, but I'll take the few times a year that we can.
Growing up we were super close, every holiday and day off of school we got together. Now that we are all grown up and have our own kids and houses, we can host cousin get togethers so that all of our kids will have the same childhood that we got. I love that we make a point to get together 4-5 times a year, and we're so happy that all of us live within a 100 mile radius of each other (we're the furthest away).
Being silly with cousins is the best right?
