Two Favorites and Service- A New Family Tradition

One of the nights, when Emily was still in the hospital, I joined our great friends the Pats for dinner since they were the ones caring for the boys during the first two days of Gray's life. At the completion of dinner everyone stayed at the table and then they went around and each told of their two favorite things and one act of service they did or had done to them. (Kinda like President Monson mentioned in conference last year.) So last Sunday I started the same routine in our family.

Here is one round from me for these past two weeks:
Two favorite things:

1. Falling asleep on the recliner in the middle of the day with Gray bundled in my arms and then waking up and having Gabe cuddle with us for 20 more minutes!
2. Trying to eat Grayson's little soft cuddly fuzzy face. I love his head with its smooth skin and soft hair.

Service (we have been focusing on service we provide, but I will make an exception in order to praise my wife):

-Em has been serving me by sleeping downstairs so Grayson wont wake me up as much. (The idea is this will allow me to have more energy to handle the other boys, which has had some success if not as much as she would like.)

(They also read the Book of Mormon while a the dinner table and we are adopting that technique as well.)
