Break my heart...


As Grandpa's birthday party (see previous post) was winding down, Avery and Austin finally started to come out of their shell - all my children are "slow to warm up." At one of the back tables, a group of 5 or 6 young kids, including A&A, were playing around and one of the little girls was handing out chocolate hearts from her Valentine's stash. Austin got a heart and noticed that Avery didn't have one. Wes was close by and Austin went to him and said "Daddy, Avery want a heart." Wes turned to Avery and asked her if she wanted a heart and she said "no." Austin didn't hear her say this and a few minutes later when he realized that Avery still didn't have a heart, he went up to Wes and said "Daddy, willyou break my heart in half?" He then went and gave Avery half of his heart. Melts your heart doesn't it!?!?

That is so sweet! You know you are doing something right when they start noticing things like that. :)
