Today I was recognizing and trying to appreciate all the luxuries that come along with only having one child to care for.  Like watching him breathing after he’s fallen asleep; or holding him on my lap while Tim feeds him his fourth solid food (sweet potatoes) flashing proud grins at each other when he lunges for another bite; the wonder of enjoying each first for the very first time, with no comparison or expectation; trading off for alone time, and having it be special time for Miles too; getting another couple in our 5-seater car; and a Miles sandwich in bed in the morning.

I’m sure there are lots of things to appreciate when #2 and up come along, but I wanted to remember these special things about just having one.
