Tenderness

I'd like to talk a little bit about how much I love these two little guys. About how I see my father's bone structure in Theo's face. How Theo calms immediately upon feeling my touch or even my presence, and how amazing that is. How Bumpus has been such a good boy the past few days and how much I once again realize he's a much better kid when we're busy, engaged and connected. How he pets and kisses his brother and how much this makes me happy. How that "if you ever need someone to hold you tight" song in that Subaru commercial where the young girl is changing her tire in the rain gives me chills because it will always remind me of the time my second son was born. How jubilant I am that I am past the giant hurdle of birthing this new and final child, and how the conception/pregnancy/birth portion of my life is now over, and how bittersweet this is. How glad I am I took the leap to have a second child despite all my fears because I truly believe my family is now complete. How everyone was right that having a second child makes you love your first even more. How there is playground sand in my carpet and boogers on my white padded headboard and how I'm ok with that. How I can't wait to see the wonderful men these boys are going to grow into, because of, or maybe in spite of, me.
