How Can Life Get Any Sweeter Than This?

I'm in a sweet season with my boys. Aiden is independent and fun and says the most hilarious things. Alder is the happiest and most content baby ever and now these two little boys of mine are interacting. The very first thing Aiden says when he wakes up is "Where's Alder?" His favorite thing to do is touch Alder's head and talk "baby talk" to him. When they see each other, they smile really big smiles. Alder is so fascinated with everything Aiden does and he is beginning to laugh at the things that his big brother is doing.

Lately when I watch these two together, I find myself thinking "how can life get any sweeter than this?"
I want to freeze time. I want these two to stay little and innocent to all that's out there in the world. I want it to be the 4 of us laughing and cuddling on the couch together forever. I don't want this season of me being their favorite to end. Of playing cars on the "vrooming chair" and reading our favorite stories on repeat. Of me being the one to kiss their boo boos and rock them to sleep.

Again I wonder "how can life get any sweeter than this?"
But then I realize I've had these thoughts before. On my wedding day when I was surrounded by my favorite people in a beautiful dress on a sunny day standing next to my sweetheart making promises of forever.

"How can life get any sweeter than this?"

The moment Aiden was born and he was laid on my chest. When I stared in to his big brown eyes and felt his heart beat.

"How can life get any sweeter than this?"

Our first family vacation together, when I watched Aiden touch the sand and play in the water. When we were care free and sun kissed.

"How can life get any sweeter than this?"

And then again when I met Alder. He flipped my world upsidedown. The way he grabbed my finger almost immediately after he was put on my chest. The way his daddy looked at him. The moment Aiden met Alder and "us 3" became "us 4."

"How can life get any sweeter than this?"
So I guess the answer to my question is, it can and it does. 

I'm glad I have so many more sweet moments to come, but I am treasuring the sweet moments of today.
