I really enjoyed reading your comments about spending time with your children. They’re the most important parts of our lives, and taking that purposeful time to just do something with them is so crucial- and rewarding.


This week we’ve taken a little time off from the normal schedule to go away for a few days with family. Its not been the most relaxing trip by a long shot, but its been as relaxing as taking a vacation with a four month old who won’t go to anyone but me can be.

We’ve spent the last couple of days floating in the lazy river, and Layla has stolen her papa away to swing her until he feels like his arm is going to fall off. The rest of the time I’ve spent trying to coax Wallace to go down for a nap. Poor little man is frustrated that he can’t just get up and run around with Layla, and he gets so overstimulated that we need to get those naps in to refresh him. I keep telling him that’s its alright for him to be a baby, but I don’t think he’s buying it.

Its been nice to get away from our normal scenery, but I am eager to get home to the husband and be in my own bed. And by the way, Layla would be in more pictures with me if she loved me as much as her grandpa. :) She loves me a smidge more, I think, but no one else exists when Papa is around.

Stop back by tomorrow to see the studliest little fellow modeling his new bandana bibs.
