Life with Jack.....

is never dull. This week, he has made me laugh out loud so often.

He was watching me change Therese's diaper and was worried about the umbilical cord. I explained that that was how she received food from me while she grew in my tummy. Anna then walked into the room and he wanted to share his new knowledge with her.

"Anna, this is the invisible cord."

But what really made me giggle was this: (this will probably only happen in your house if your husband's occupation is 'tuba player')

Jack put the Boppy pillow around himself and lifted one end to his mouth. He then proceeded to "play" Seventy-six trombones into his own sousaphone while marching around the living room. He's really quite a talented musician and entertainer.

I knew I needed to write these little moments down before they were lost forever in my sleep deprived state. But I am joyfully making the sacrifice. Did I mention that we are all in love over here with our little Therese?


P.S. I had to add a quick update. While patiently waiting for her lunch today, (I was feeding someone else), I asked Anna to bring the towels out of the dryer and put them on the couch for me. Not only did she do that, she folded the entire load of towels without being asked and had them stacked neatly to take upstairs! My heart nearly burst at the act of kindness. I am SO blessed.

  1. Your children are really precious and I'm glad you record these moments. Someday you will re-read them and your heart will swell with the memories of all that love in your home. You are blessed.
