Snapshots

Some snapshots of our weekend:

The four of us, sitting at the dinner table, holding hands and swaying back and forth, as The Boy leads us in several Passover and Shabbat songs he learned in school...

Little Bear putting his head on my shoulder and relaxing his whole body into mine in the way only babies can, saying "Yes," in a small voice, in response to the question, "Are you ready to rest, Little Bear?"...

The Boy building a tower of blocks, showing it to his brother, then getting really upset when the absolutely predictable happens and Little Bear knocks it over...

Little Bear giving an unsolicited "Play, woo!" in response to his brother's statement, "We're going to play in the playground?"...

The Boy falling asleep in the car, remaining asleep stretched across my lap in the Eat'n'Parl, until his food arrived; at that point, he woke up cheerily and began powering through his and his brother's dinner...

The sudden realization that Little Bear's extreme activity has worked off most of the mighty badonkadonk he was sporting in the back of his diapers, leaving him with only slightly more butt than his glute-challenged brother...

The Boy, singing a song that had letter sounds, leaving space for Little Bear to make the letter sounds; and, Little Bear, knowing most of the sounds and having the timing to put them in the song...

The Boy helping Mum pick up Legos from the ground while the three of us tried to prevent Little Bear from dumping them out again immediately...

The Boy and I hiding under a blanket together, until Little Bear raced in the room to join us in our little blanket-fort...

The Boy, tonight, running from room to room to dispense good-night hugs and kisses...

Little Bear's exhilarated smile, saying, "Again!" every time he flew in the air...
