Tim has this thing he does with all of the boys. When he's hugging and loving on them, he says sort of quietly to them, "Did you know you're my favorite _____?"
The other night after dinner Simon was sitting beside Tim where he normally does and then ended up sitting with Tim and I hear quietly, "Did you know you're my favorite Simon?" After a minute Simon hopped down and Jesse ended up on Tim's lap. Then I hear, "You're my favorite Jesse!"
He was on a roll then and hugged Noah and said, "You're my favorite Noah." Noah just rolled his eyes and laughed. Then Tim grabbed Eli before he left to go play Legos and hugged him and said, "You're my favorite Eli." Eli just took the hug and then left.
By then I was clearing off the table and Tim walked up to me and grabbed me, looked into my eyes and said, "You're my favorite," and then kissed me.
I love that man.
