Note the one missing sock. This is a Deacon thing. Most awakenings from naps/bedtimes find him either completely sock less or with one missing (usually, the left one). Here's another example of that sweet, sad face.
I've tried to get a picture of him with his face in his hands because it really is funny to see, but he usually notices the camera and starts hamming it up with big smiles even though the tears are still rolling down his face.
Now Zeke. Zeke pulled a new move on me the other week. A friend of mine from PWOC came to visit and bring me some lunch. She also brought her four kids with her to play with my boys so they'd have someone other than each other to play with. It was wonderful. Until they left, that is. As they left the house and got into their car, Zeke ran to the window, and literally sobbed as they drove away. He was truly inconsolable for a solid five minutes. I thought it might have been a one time thing since it had been awhile since he'd played with kids other than Deacon and all, but no.
It was all I could do to not cry myself while the tears and the snot streamed down his sweet little face. (If you watch closely, at the very end you can actually see the tears falling off his face.) He went on like this for a few minutes before I finally offered to let him watch a movie as consolation. Sigh. What's a mom to do?
(And yes, that is snow you see on the ground in the video. We had our second snowfall of the season this morning. I'll write about it later...like tomorrow or something.)
