Ordinary Moment

Tonight, as I watched Cassidy and Dylan on the couch together, I felt my heart catch and I paused...



There they were. Sitting together, drinking their milk, and reading a book.



It was such an ordinary moment.



But yet felt wonderfully significant to me.

Oh Laurie, my heart just smiled when I saw these pics. I too catch those moments with Landon and his brothers and the world just seems to stand still. It's such a wonderful sight to see. "Ordinary Moment" couldn't be a more perfect title for this post! Just smile and enjoy it!

Love it! Brooke and Lindsey are starting to do more together and it just melts my heart everytime.
Cute pictures of the 2 of them together. I love how well Dylan is doing with the straw cup.

Aww, can't wait for Bennett to do that! They look so sweet together on the couch and he's doing great with that honey bear cup! When did he really start using it? Bennett is 8 months, I wonder if I should introduce it??

Ahh they look so sweet.

I'm so glad that you are able to see the happiness in those "ordinary" moments. Those are the ones that really make up our lives. I see them all the time and I feel like such a sap. But it does make all the hearache and struggle worth it.

The kids are beautiful and only an amazing mother could raise them so well. I'm sure you had a tear in your eye when your took those pics. I know I do.

Love you Laurie, can't wait for the day when I can finally give you a great big hug!

It is always those "ordinary moments" that bring a smile to our faces, and tears to our eyes. Thank you for sharing, Laurie!

Beautiful and ordinary and what life is all about!

So wonderful, Laurie!

I'm jealous b/c

1. Andrew won't give B the time of day.

2. B won't really sit still long enough to do anything.

3. I can't get B around books (even board books) b/c he chews them until they're unrecognizable!

:)

It's been so long since I have read blogs. It was good to come here and check in. I LOVED this ordinary moment. We have had many of those around here where Sydney is hanging with her brothers just doing whatever they are doing. I hope all is well with you. I could totally understand the feelings on the eval. They are nerveracking.

Your blog was posted on a board that I go on. You have a beautiful family! I loved the pic of the two of them with their bottles. My two do the same often and it's the cutest thing.
