Rocking my babies

This happens all the time. I'll be rocking one {lately AC} and the next one gets jealous and decides he wants to get up there too {lately Will} then the last one decides that it surely looks like a great idea and he wants to pile on top of everyone {obviously Jake}. Normally this happens during the day while I am home by myself and cannot possibly get a pic. This time it so happened that it was while James was home so I made him grab the camera before it all went downhill because someone elbowed someone else and that one arched their back because they were mad and made everyone jump down because they were falling anyway. I love these times though----they are priceless. I can remember when I used to rock Jake all the time but now, not so often. Will still lets me but on his terms. Right now I have Alaina Claire to fill that spot. But you never know when the last time is for that kind of thing---you turn around twice and they are too big. So for now, I enjoy it when I can.

I hope that my child
looking back on today
remembers a mother who had time to play.
Children grow up while you are not looking.
There will be years ahead for cleaning and cooking.
So quiet now cobwebs.
Dust go to sleep.
I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep.

That is just too sweet!! I guess I need to get a rocking chair for when you come to visit. The poem made me cry. I am such a sap!!

Love to all!

Aw... I love this picture. You are right - you never know when the "lasts" are for any of the cute things that your kiddos do. Cool that James captured this. =)

I've got a visual of the chair's arms falling off each side and the seat hitting the ground!!! hehe - you better get a bigger chair if you plan on having another one!
