When I was pregnant with all three of my little guys.... I'll admit it, I REALLY wanted a girl! And e-v-e-r-y s-i-n-g-l-e t-i-m-e, I saw that there was a penis on the ultrasound.... By the time little Zane flashed his little penis at me, I was almost expecting it....
But as soon as each one was born, i loved them no matter what sex they were and everyday since I have been happy to say, "I have three boys."
I've learned to appreciate every little piece of the "boy" in them....
I love it when they look up to John and try to follow in another man's footsteps.... they have done so with out gender prompting from myself.... it just happened naturally :-)
John and Zane "mowing" the lawn :-)
I love seeing all their facial expressions..... little drama kings at time!!!
I love having three "momma's boys"..... yeah, at times it can be stressful..... but I love being the one that can kiss away the boo boo, hug away the tears, and I get to hear little Zane singing my name upon waking in the morning.... (Kinda goes like this, "mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy, how I onder ere ou are" think Twinkle Twinkle Little Star sounding :-)
I love that I can cut their hair at home with just clippers! And they let me do crazy things to their hair when I want and when they want :-)
Izeah bout a year ago.....
Zak last night :-)
I find it amazing how DIRTY they can get!! All summer the boys have dirt in their finger and toenails and I have tried and tried to get it out and I just CAN'T!! Showers everyday, sometimes twice a day! Izeah has even taking lately to playing in the garden with worms... he finds them, puts them in a bucket, gives em some dirt, and tells them to go "night, night"......
I love their general curiosity.... they are into EVERYTHING!!!! I can't take my eyes off of them for more then a second and someone has destoyed something or spilled something! Yet they never have hurt themselves... they just love anything that is "not yours, it's MOMMY'S"
I love watching Izeah and Zane run around naked at camp, screaming the word NAKED as loud as they can to whoever looks at them :-)
(Pre- naked here....)
I love that they pee on trees and plants and tell me, "mommy, the flowers are THIRSTY!"
I love that no matter how bad I think my laundry is.... it's pants and shirts. That's it.... sooooo not complicated dressing my little men.
I don't know why I had these thoughts today. Maybe cause I was looking through old pictures, or it was hearing Zane's sweet sweet song and then when I looked at him he popped up and said, "MOM! I pooped! Only use 1 wipe!". Maybe it's just spending more time with them this summer then I did last summer that makes me appreciate all their boyish charm all the more :-)
I have another part too though.... I now get to help raise a girl :-) So after everything I know about little boys.... now I get to remember what it was like to be a little girl :-)
I get to take her to die her hair purple!!
And do CRAZY sleepovers :-)
