Sweet Andrew

Aren't some of the sweetest things in the middle? The cream in an oreo cookie, the jelly in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and sweet middle brothers. Our Andrew is certainly as sweet as they come.

Sweet and silly...and a big fan of the selfie!

Like a lot of middles, it's sometimes easy for him to get a little lost in the shuffle. It's been on our hearts recently to carve out extra time for him.

Little things go a long way...a special lunch date in the middle of the day with just mom and dad...

...15 minutes in the evening to play any game he wants, and learning new things about him. Things like he can set up Mouse Trap by himself in less time than it takes me!

Even just a trip to the grocery store with just the two of us gives me the chance to hear his thoughts and ideas with no interruptions and no competition...

He really loves his "special time" with mom or dad at the end of the day, snuggling up to read the books he alone picks. 

These tiny efforts on our part are huge to him, but truly, we are all reaping the benefits. For my boy who says "I love you mama" about a hundred times a day, may you always know just how special, valued and treasured you are to us!
