A love letter to my Valentines

Dear Ben & Hannie,

I am the luckiest Momma - I get to have YOU BOTH as my Valentines! I love you so much sometimes I can't even express it. I never knew there was a feeling like that of a Momma to her babies. It's awesome and I thank my lucky stars every day that I get to experience it through you.

Today, Ben you are sick with a fever. At first I was disappointed we couldn't go about our usual Thursday business and we won't get to go to ECFE this afternoon. But, what better thing to do on Valentine's Day than cuddle on the couch with one of your sweeties? I love you snuggled up next to me. I hope I comfort you as much as you comfort me.

Hannie, today you really adapted to a different routine. You can be so independent that it frustrates me at times, but today it was great to have a little lady who can do what she wants all on her own. You played by yourself great this morning while I took care of Ben. And you never went too far away from him; you kept coming back to make sure he was OK. What a good Sissy!

Today is Valentine's Day, so everyone in the world is expressing their love for each other. But you know what? We do that for each other every single day. It is one of my favorite things in my life! I love that Ben gives me big sloppy kisses. I love how Hannie giggles and asks for more kisses when I blow raspberries on her neck. I love how you both love each other. Just yesterday I was fixing lunch and the conversation at the table was this:

Ben: "I love you Hannie."
Hannah: "I love you Ben."
Ben: "I love you Hannie."
Hannah: "I love you Ben."
(for *at least* 5 more repeats)

You can't beat that! My heart exploded then!
Lovey siblings holding hands at storytime

Since it's lovey holiday, I thought I'd write you a lovey poem. Here goes:

My kids are named Hannie and Ben.
I can't imagine my life without them. 
They like to snuggle and play
And be silly all day.
Each one is truly a gem.

One of the things I love most about you right now is how passionate you both are about the things you love! Ben - trucks, trains, hammers, firetrucks, buses, Dobby, books, the ABCs, Daniel Tiger you love it all and show such excitement and happiness when you play with your favorite toys. I love it. And Hannie - you're a girl who doesn't go far without her Nummy or Kitty. Sometimes I think you think you ARE a kitty. Such passion is adorable and I hope you never lose the passion for the things that are important to you in your life!

I love you B&H, more and more every day. I hope sometime in your life you get to experience the sort of powerful love I have for you. It will knock you out!

You are my best little Valentines!

Love, Momma
