Baby Hungry

We were having one of those lovely family evenings together. We had decided to do a movie night, and Jake had selected his favorite movie for us--Mountain of the Lord. (Yes, our children live a wonderfully sheltered existence.) Cameron was in the kitchen popping the popcorn, and the whole house was scented with the buttery, salty smells of anticipation and family togetherness. I was sitting on the floor with the kids while they rolled around together in their jammies. Jake squeezed Grace, Grace laughed, and Abby and Jake launched into a discussion about how much they love Grace. I smiled and thought, "This is why we keep having kids."
There is something delightfully joyful and addictive about babies--their soft squishiness, their smiles and belly laughs, and the cute things they do that we all coo over. I love the way Abby and Jake adore Grace. They love to hug her, play with her, and laugh at the silly things she does. When our patience with her temper tantrums runs thin, they step in to help her. Families are a beautiful thing. I can't wait to see the kids fawning over our new baby this fall. August can't come soon enough.
