Today was fun! Brooke woke up a bit grumpy because she decided to have a party in the middle of the night and took forever to fall back to sleep. Maybe that’s my fault though because I screwed up her nap during the day and accidentally woke her up. Who knows with toddlers eh?
We were able to spend a good portion of the day outside collecting apples and looking for worms. She loves to collect a few apples back at the orchard and bring them home for our bunny. The worms though are just for fun I guess.
I think the best part of watching Brooke grow up here is because it actually brings back a piece of my own childhood and is pretty much what keeps my memories fuelled. I see her starting to do things that I used to do as a little girl and it warms my heart everyday. It seems kind of weird maybe but even just watching her pick apples from a tree that my grandfather had planted is special to me, and being able to share these moments with Tyler and her make me happier each day.
I think it’s important to keep old family memories alive for as long as you can. And hey, if this happens naturally then that’s even better. I feel more and more blessed as each day arrives, and sometimes can’t believe who I get to live my life with. Isn’t that what living is all about?
