While playing very nicely together, racing their cars, I hear Will exclaim, "I won!" I then hear Barrett good-naturedly reply, "Yeah, I losed. I very losed!"

Will: "Mom, I can't WAIT to meet our new baby!"

I've been trying to be more intentional about being affectionate to Will. Even though he's my biggest boy, he still is a little guy at only four years old. Because he's the least needy of physical help, he gets the least physical affection and yet, when I hug him or pick him up, he just soaks it in like a sponge. I am trying to give him many big hugs through the day, and he is responding like a wilted plant to water. I always thought of myself as an affectionate parent, and it just goes to show how easily things can slip through the cracks. I love my little big boy.
