So many things I want to remember each and every day. Little things. Things the boys do or say and they make me laugh or smile. They have both started singing so much more. That is so precious to me. Cameron will sing Little Bunny Foo Foo now. He actually gets two lines into it! Noah of course loves the "bopping on the head" part of the song. We couldn't sing this for a while because he would literally try and bop you on the head. Funny. Cute.

They love to call to their daddy when he is working in his office during the day. It melts my heart. I love that they have the opportunity to have him work at home when he is in town. They are very lucky.

They are fascinated with so many new things it is so hard for me to recall all of them. They love trains and cars. Animals. Noah especially loves puppies but Cameron surprised me the other day and became attached to a new little dog I got for them.

Cameron is starting to have separation anxiety. Big time. They tell me it is common to have a second round with this at about their age. He never had it the first time (around 10 months or so). Noah still battles with separation anxiety. I think he always will.

At the end of the day I think I am just so tired I can't recall all the wonderful things from the day. I want to. I want to be able to capture them all and be able to share the little joys we have each and every day with them when they grow up. So many things I want for my children.

It is impossible to remember everything. I wish I had had a blog when the girls were little, or at least keep a journal. So much is lost.

RJK is going through separation anxiety right now too. This last week has been a nightmare for my little mommy heart. Every day she has screamed when I dropped her off at pre-school (whether I stay and play or drop and run...she latches on and cries her little eyes out. I hope this passes soon. (The teacher says she is fine within one minute of my leaving...but ....geeZ!) So defintely know what you are doing through.
