Happy Monday, hope you all had a wonderful holiday with the special men in your life! We survived yet another weekend as parents of two, but definitely more notably, the girls & I made it through our second week at home, just the three of us. Last week was a little harder than the first, my husband had a job that kept him working overnight two days in a row (which would bother me even if I had no kids, because I’m still 12.) So while most days I can count down the minutes until I have a couple more hands to help & am no longer outnumbered, 6pm came & went and I found myself giving Waverly a bath while breastfeeding Avalon, trying to figure out how somehow, my first adult beverage in ten months could make its way into that equation (which obviously, it didn’t, I don’t even think I found time to pee). Kind of a circus. Yet we all made it, alive, & pretty damn ecstatic when daddy finally walked in the door Friday afternoon. 🙂
And then the weekend. It has been crazy hot here, like really hot, so we made plans to take the girls to the pool on both Saturday & Sunday, which really is ideal the situation for us right now. Plus, it gave me the chance to put them in the swimsuits my mom got them a few months back. Avalon might not be old enough to swim yet (or even close), but I could have died at the sight of her in a newborn suit, matching her big sissy.

And of course, we were so excited to celebrate daddy on Sunday! Waverly & I had picked him out some new shoes last week and naturally, she told him all about them the next day, so although we had no surprises, we had a great day as a family. We went out to brunch, just the four of us, & then went to the pool with my side of the family for the rest of the day. After two days in the sun, Waverly was one happy, exhausted toddler & we finished off the weekend with an early bedtime plus an adults only (plus the sleeping baby) dinner. 🙂

The biggest shout-out to this guy, who deserves it all for how hard he works for our family! He is as manly as they come, but rocks it as a girl dad & I just know that these two little ladies will be daddy’s little girls just like I still am today. Life has just gotten a whole lot crazier, but there is no one else I would rather raise my babies with & I am so, so thankful for him.
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
