The View From the Couch

Here is a smattering of pictures from the last few months of me laying on the couch. I have a unique perspective, laying around all day.

I have the privilege of being the place where Isaiah prefers to throw his fits these days. In the picture below he is hiding under his blanket while screaming his head off about some injustice.
Here are Asher and Daddy showing off their matching plaid shorts. Asher was so proud.
Here's Isaiah goofing off on the nice living room furniture. He was soon thereafter scolded.
Here I am supervising Naomi and Asher playing computer games.
Here's Asher giving Samuel a hug. Asher loves to hug and kiss my tummy/Samuel. First he asks where Samuel is, then when I point to my belly he squishes Samuel and I in a hug and then gently kisses my belly. Then he always asks if Samuel hugged and kissed him back. And I always say yes.
In this shot Asher and Isaiah are seeking sanctuary from Nanny Amy who is trying to put them down for their naps.
Here's Isaiah stealing my headphones and jamming out to my tunes (or was it the Book of Mormon?).
Can you tell from these pics who my most frequent visitor on the couch is? Definitely Isaiah. He comes in to cuddle me or tell me something quite often. And I am so OK with that.

somehow I imagined you in the family room...I love that Isaiah loves on you. Hey do you remember when we learned yoga together from a book and got really sore? That's right - it has nothing to do with this post, just thought I'd tell you, I still smile from that memory.

Yeah, like Erica I was imagining you in the family room. Do you switch back and forth? You are doing so good, and I'm glad you keep updating your blog, even though to you it might seem like not much goes on in your life right now.

I do lay in the family room in the later afternoons and evenings to be a part of things, but when the Nanny is here (all morning through lunch) I lay in the living room so as to stay out of her way. I find that I just can't not be the Mom when I'm in the room with my kids. So if I were in there with the kids and the nanny all day I'd be butting in and undermining her authority all the time.

There are all the reason for getting out of bed each morning. You just might miss some of that super cuteness.

I'm always impressed with the creative things you come up with to comment on from your perch on the couch. Sort of like the Oracle at Delphi!
