The little things in life

Watching Nate do the most mundane things brings immense joy to my heart. He finds so much pleasure in everything. The other night Adam gave him a warm glass of milk and toast with almond butter before bed. He was fully immersed in the act of eating his favorite snack. It was as if nothing else existed outside of that late night snack and him. The older we get the more it takes to please us. That is one of the beauties in raising children. They remind you to step back and truly appreciate all of the little things in life and life itself.
