i feel like this blog has seen better days.
we've been so busy & it seems like blogging is kinda the last thing i find time for lately.
just a season, i guess.
there have been some sunshiny days - full of slides & swings, walks & fresh air.
and there have been some hard days - full of tears, "no's", and begging scooter for 5 minutes of peace & quiet.

today though...
i plopped a snack down on camden's high chair.
just went about my business doing who knows what.
and then miles came over.
and instead of pestering her, he gave her an eskimo kiss.
something he just learned how to do.

and luckily, i caught the tail end of it.
the part where she touched her big brother's face.
and her eyes got wide & lit up.
the part where he squealed with joy.
saying "sissy! sissy!"
all while looking into her big blue eyes.

and my heart was so full in that instant.
the crumbs being brushed onto the ground stopped mattering.
so did the schedule & the errands we needed to run.
and the items i still needed to check off my to-do list faded away.
and i just savored those few moments of love shared between the two of them.

i'm sure within seconds he pulled her hair.
or she unknowingly stole his favorite toy.
but i'm so thankful i caught those sweet moments on camera.
i hope they never end between them.
