We Have A Daddy And Husband Again!
As Dallin says in the cutest voice, "I did it!!!" Our family did it!! Today at 2, we are done with Ryan's crazy schedule of 6 days a week and 12 hours a day. It has been a long 7 and a half weeks. I can't believe today is the last day. There were times that were hard and frustrating but also times that I will cherish with the kiddos so much. I feel like Dallin has also grown these last 2 months. We told him he was the man of the house while Dad was gone. I loved the moments with Dallin when he would want me to rock him. That lasted only about a week but boy did I love that week of snuggling and rocking him. I also loved how when we read books, he would tell me he wanted to read me the book. I would sit there and just watch our sweet boy ramble off words. It also has seemed to click with Dallin and manners. He started to say sorry and please and thank you. We have been working on that for awhile but it seems to have clicked these last 2 months. Yesterday I cleaned our house. Jacob kept walking on my clean, wet floor and he would fall. I was getting a little mad at Jacob and as I picked him up to love him I heard Dallin say "Sorry mom. It's my fault." Boy has Dallin sure grown. I just wanted to pick him up and never let that boy of ours go. I also will cherish the moments when Dallin would sit next to me and look at me and start laughing. His laughing would make me laugh. One time Dallin and I were laughing and we couldn't stop. Ryan didn't understand what was so funny. With our Jacob, he sure has had to grow up these last 2 months with Hannah here. He couldn't be held and loved like he was used to. It was hard for him at first but he learned that he is a big boy. I will cherish the moments with Jacob when he would grab the remote or my phone and run. He would turn and give me this look and then start this infectious laugh. I found myself laughing and chasing him and loving it. I will also cherish the moments when I had a few tears and Jacob would come up to me and give me a kiss. He's such a sweet boy. It also never seemed to fail that when I checked on Hannah during a nap Jacob was right behind me doing his shhhhhhhh sound. It always made me smile. I sure love our boys!!! Our Hannah sure has grown too. She loves life and loves to be apart of our family. I learned so much about myself these last 2 months too. I learned to let the little things go and if I don't shower it will be ok. We can't wait for Ryan to be home and to enjoy him for a few days. I don't have to set his alarm or make his lunch!!!!! And Santa is coming tonight! I think I am the most excited about that!
