Izzy and Ethan. Ethan and Eli. Izzy, Ethan and Eli.

We are so lucky to have three great kids. I fall in love with them when I see them play together and genuinely love each other. It's so special and I hope they continue it through adulthood (a mother can only wish).

I was driving Izzy and Eli around on one of my many errands around town and she says to me, "Mommy, I miss Ethan. I love Ethan. I love it when I chase Ethan. And I love it when Ethan chases me." Seriously? How sweet is that?

Yes, there are days when I want to leave them in a store, park or restaurant, but for the most part they are the best things ever to come into our lives. We are fortunate.

One weekend Ed was out of town and I popped in a movie to give me some down time. I look over at the kids and they are in the zone.

Twenty minutes later they are laughing hysterically. I look over and Ethan is trying to kiss Izzy and she plays keep away.

But he finally lands one.

These are pictures from today.

It takes some coaxing to get a group picture, especially from Izzy

They got serious

But it only lasted a moment. Notice how terrified Eli looks.
This is only the beginning.

Oh my goodness. I miss them all so much! And you and Ed too, of course. :)
