An ongoing list

Here starts a list of things that I'll never get to do with Drew. Things that I love and things that the kids love also.

1. Hold him, kiss his tears away, squeeze him, cuddle with him in front of the fireplace, etc.

2. Dance around the living room with him and singing to him. This is one of both kids favorite things...and mine as well. We do it daily.

3. Watch the sunset, oohing and aahing over the pretty colors. One of Elizabeth's things.

4. Laughing with him over silly stuff.

5. The "ah-choo" game (a Mommy made up game that the kids love).

6. Disciplining him for not listening, getting into things that he shouldn't, etc. I'd give anything to be able to discipline him. Strange, but true.

7. Watching his face as the wind hits it and takes his breath away. One that Carson is reminding me of daily.

8. Taking him for his monthly professional photographs (for the first year).

9. Holding his little hands as he takes his first steps.

10. Smelling his sweet baby head and tickling his chubby little thighs.

That's enough for today. You never realize just how much you are missing out on when your child dies until you examine what you do on a daily basis.
