Drew absolutely loves the beach and ever so often will ask me when I am going to take them to the “beach berry” as he calls it. I have no idea why he calls the beach, the “beach berry,” but he does. I keep telling him when the weather gets warmer we will go there again.
I videotaped one of the sweetest moments between brothers that I have ever seen. Will helped put Lukey to bed tonight. He read to him, rocked him, sang to him, prayed with him, and then told a “Henry story” (something Daddy and Mommy do with the boys before bed). Will was very gentle and loving and sang beautifully to Luke. Luke loved it, you could tell and was just eating up the positive attention. These are the moments that I will ponder until I until I can remember no longer.
Tonight as I was tucking Will into bed, he said, “Mommy, I want us to have a girl baby.” I said, “Well, you’ll have to pray about that.” Will: “I want her to have hair like yours and eyes like yours and eyelashes like yours because I want her to be sweet.”
