Owen has started asking "Why?" in response to everything!
It's time for your nap...why
It's time for bed...why
Why did Jesus die on the cross?
Why did Noah not get a punishment? What is a punishment?
Why can't I run in the street? Why Mama, why?
Why can't I go to swimming lessons NOW?
The list could go on for days.

Last night, Aaron wanted to test him on this so when Owen told Aaron that he loved him, Aaron asked, "Why?"
Owen: Because I love you.
Aaron: Why?
Owen: I just do, I love you.
Aaron: Why?
Owen: Because that's what love is. It's how I feel.
Aaron: I love you too buddy.

I love to listen in on moments like this. I want to hold all three of my boys and tell them I love them...just because that's what love is.

Belated Birthday Post--Owen's Day

Here is Owen's big day. He turned 3 on Feb. 13th. Eli decided to sleep in on this day, so Owen had a birthday cake decorating party with Mommy and Baby Bear. As you can see, Owen chose to cover his cake with candy. I love this silly little boy!

Belated Birthday Post--Eli's Day

These are some pictures of Eli's big ONE year birthday. We took these on the big day (Feb. 12). Owen just had to sneak in on the fun too! I adore my sweet, sweet Eli. His smile just fills my heart with joy.
