Happy Valentine's Evening

Edgar's working tonight--all night. Liliana, Ruben, and I played Candy Land to celebrate Valentine's Day. I wasn't going to cheat at that game tonight, but I did. Lili was stuck, waiting to get a blue forever and I rigged the cards. I've cheated every time we've played that game--just to get the game over with. Then Marcos started throwing up. Four shirts and five vomiting episodes later (I finally quit changing shirts), he snuggled up to me and fell asleep.

It's not the most romantic Valentine's evening I've had, but it might be the most loving. I'm amazed at how much love I feel for my sweet little baby who's sick for the first time in his life. I look in at his siblings sleeping peacefully and feel the same incredible love for them. And when I called Edgar to report the throwing up episodes, I felt so grateful that I have someone to call who loves and cares about these little people we're raising as much as I do.

This is very sweet. Which is worse? Candyland or Chutes and Ladders? I guess we'll never know.

Sorry about sick little Marcos. That's never fun for anyone.

Even LESS fun than Candyland or Chutes and Ladders.

I love you.

The true definition of love for sure. This brought a tear to my eye...we are so blessed to get to love so deeply. I love you.

Tap, tap. Is this thing on?

You can't go and write a wonderful post like this and then just stop for more than a month! ;)

This really was the sweetest post. Love it.
