Mace Loves Me!

Yesterday the day began with both boys fighting over their sister -- who gets to hold her, choose her clothes, choose her bows, bath her, and make her smile are all daily competitions at our home. The boys just can not get enough of their sweet baby sissy! We had to take a picture of Ady in her first flower headband that Mace chose for her to wear.
(Notice her shirt says, "Daddy Loves Me")

Keston was so proud of me when he saw her flower ... "Good job mom! You 'grewd' a flower on her head!" That was enough to get me and Mace laughing this morning!

The day went on, and of course, Ady has to poop or spit up through at least one outfit a day -- so after changing her -- and bow too (by Keston this time) -- the boys were ready for food. Adalyn patiently waited in her bouncy chair and went to sleep while I made dinner. She looked so cute so I, of course, had to snap a picture. That is when Mace noticed her bib -- it said "Daddy loves me" just like her previous shirt. Well, Mace just lost it in full on tears! "Why doesn't anything say Mace loves me --- cause I love her the most!" Usually we are not that emotional -- but hunger and an interrupted nap will do it for Mace --- and it was a justifiable argument -- why should daddy be so special :)

Mace proceeded to cry and came to me with a permanent marker, yes he knows where I keep my art supplies. "Move her bib mom, move her bib." Well, after calming him down and finding a white onesie that permanent markers show up great on -- he created his Sissy the most beautiful onesie that I am sure I will have to pull out in years to come to remind the both of them that they do indeed love each other! And now Ady knows that ...

"Mace loves Me!"
