Shout out # 13 and # 14

By far my most favorite thing to love! Kody Gage and Lennix June! My heart smiles at the mere thought of them. There are so many things I love about these two little humans this post could go forever. For the sake of everyone reading (yes, I know EVERYONE reads my blog) I will try and keep it sweet and short. Let's start with the man. Kody- I love every inch of this kid. I have said from the day he came into this world that he is an "old soul". He just "gets" things like no other kid I've ever met. I'm not talking about school things, I'm talking about life things. He has such a strong sense of self and never doubts himself. I love being a mother to this boy. He is such a joy to have around the house. The best big brother you could ask for! He is a hard worker and loves to play even harder! Now that we have him full time, I feel like our family is complete. It never got any easier when he had to go to his other dads house. Every time he walked out that door- a piece of my heart went with him. I am grateful that this little man was brought into my life almost 8 years ago. He truely is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
My baby girl Lennix. Who by the way- had her first birthday yesterday! I have a 1 year old!! Someone asked me today how old she was, and I teared up when I answered "She's one". This little girl makes me so aware of my feminine side. I feel empowered by raising a girl. Like, if I can somehow figure out to raise her to be the woman I know she was born to become- I will change the world. She instinctivly knows how to carry a purse, push a stroller and mother her "baby". This baby girl is ALL things GIRL! She laughs with so much gusto you can't help but join her. She has her daddy (and mommy AND brother AND grandma AND Uncle Steven) wrapped around her finger and she knows it. I love her smell and her chubby little thighs. I love her curly hair (so what if I have to help it along...) and the way she rubs the top of her head after I take her pony-spout out. I love that she is interested in plants and dirt but doesn't like to get too dirty. It's because of her that we will probably head back down to Beverly Hills to do IVF again. With a baby that cute- how can you not?
I love my kids. I love being a mom. I love being THEIR mom.

Holy cow!!! Kody is going to be 8 and Lennix just turned 1?! Wow! Why does time only move slowly when you don't want it to? Thanks for all your shout outs. I enjoyed each one. Happy Valentine's Day!
