One day last week Lute was in our bedroom and asked if he could take a framed photo sitting on Nick's dresser and put it in his room. It is one of Nick and I sitting on a balcony in Costa Rica on our honeymoon.
I thought it was sweet, so I said yes.
Then last night as we were getting all the boys ready for bed and Lute was alone in his room getting his jammies on, I looked in to check on him.
He didn't see me, and I saw him holding the frame and staring at it for several seconds.
He looked up and caught me watching him and a huge grin spread across his face.
"I just love you guys, Mama."
And then I dissolved into a pool of mushy goo on the floor as my heart welled
with love and affection for my sweet boy.
That kid's a keeper.
