The Details

There is so much I want to remember about our life right this moment.


I want to remember how much Katy loves all things pink and princess.


I want to remember her sense of humor. The girl gets sarcasm at 3 years old.


I want to remember what Patrick's kisses are like, wet and slobbery and oh, so sweet!


I want to remember his side eye face, and the way he sizes up strangers and once he is comfortable he gives them his shy smile.


I want to remember how much Patrick loves helping his daddy with EVERYTHING. Cooking cleaning, fixing, yard work!


I want to remember Mike being such an amazing husband and father. Always doing that little extra to make our days great. Going to the grocery store at 7AM on St. Patrick's Day because I forgot Lucky Charms.


I want to remember the sacrifices I have made going to school nearly every Saturday to finally finish my degree, and the support from Mike, K & P and my parents. I COULDN'T and probably wouldn't of done it without them.


I want to remember the way that Patrick adores his Papa... I love watching my dad with my kids.


I want to remember my mom and Tracy always helping out cleaning and watching Patrick during our long days at Children's with Katy.


I want to remember how Kate sleeps with her hands placed perfecting under her face...s sweet.


I want to remember how kind and caring Patrick and Katy are to each other.


I want to remember when Katy declares herself as Kathryn today and NOT Katy Girl.


I want to remember Patrick's LAUGH my gosh he still has the same belly laugh he had at 6 months old.


I want to remember how a hug from Mike at the end of a long bad day, can rejuvenate me, and remind me to keep on plugging.


I want to remember my living room resembling a tornado at Toys R Us


I want to remember painting Katy's toes because she wants them to look "Just like Mommy's"


I want to remember snuggling kids in my bed, some time's slipping into their room and bringing them back to my room just because I want to snuggle them.


I want to remember Mike encouraging me to that.


I want to remember that no matter how hard I try and how many people buy Katy American Girl Dolls... she just will not budge.


I want to remember Katy singing the McDonald's Hamburger tween your toes song... makes me laugh and and every time.


I want to remember how much Katy loves TARGET and proclaims it as her favorite store. (I wonder if it will still be her favorite store when she is 13)


I want to remember the days when we are dashing off to birthdays and play dates as much as the days we spend in our jammies.


I want to remember Katy singing FIRE like it's her job.


I want to remember sitting on the couch reading the same stories.


I want to remember how creative Katy and Patrick are making boats out of laundry baskets and their elaborate tales.


I want to remember how trying this chapter of our life is as we wait for Katy's heart.


I want to remember how we got through this and remember that we can survive anything.


I want to remember the details.
