• mothers day & the in betweens •
I was treated to chocolate, new clothes, decorative pillows... and dinner at a favorite restaurant after church. It was fabulous... but one of the best gifts of all... I GOT TO TAKE A NAP... BY.MY.SELF! It was heavenly! I think I could've slept til morning, but was so happy to have my girls come wake me up so sweetly! Then we went and had dinner with our family and us 'moms' went on a walk and went shopping a bit. It really was such a wonderful day! I felt loved and refreshed.
It really felt like summer was here, if not just near. We got back from vacation where we were able to wear summer clothes... the days are getting longer. We've been going on evening walks.
And then Thursday morning we woke up to snow. Snow falling. Snow on the ground. SNOW. insane. I should've known. I was so happy it didn't snow on mother's day, as it has every year since I've been a mom... So I should've known it was coming. I'm so ready for a warm up. We have camping plans this coming month so it better shape up!
Hayden is almost a walker. ha! Yes. Shes 14 months and still not walking. She's happy crawling or being carried. And you know what... I'm totally ok with that as long as she's healthy. And get this. She can totally walk. haha. She does. She's just apparently decided crawling is quicker. She's chattering nonstop. Her favorite words include: momma, dada, no-no-no, bonk, boo, all done & more. She occasionally will tell you what a dog or a cat say. She signs when she's ready for bed, please, more, and all done. She's crazy smart, just like her big sister. She's still nursing a few times a day (I never thought I would ever nurse this long... ). Her fine motor skills are amazing. She's all about shape sorters and puzzles! She loves to give hugs, kisses, and blow kisses. She is the sweetest little one you'll ever meet!
