The guys lounged around and watched some Sponge Bob.
These two smiles steal my heart on the regular:
What's extra cute is when something is so awesome that his smile overwhelms his face and causes his eye lids to completely close shut.
I really love the closed eye lid smile.He does this a lot when he dances in the car.
Of course kisses and hugs happen during Daddy-snuggle-time.
I beg for them but Dustin gets them for free.... How is that fair at all?
Dustin's satisfied smile after his complementary hugs and kisses:
He doesn't have to be all cocky about it.
My new desk top photo:
(I expect that he'll ask me to take this photo down & be embarassed that I put it up, but what the hell. He's cute. He can get over himself.)What a wonderful, stressful, relaxing weekend we had. Dustin surprised me Thursday afternoon with a really sweet email telling me he had made us reservations and booked us a babysitter for Friday night. He knew I had a busy work weekend ahead of me and wanted to spend some time together, "so find something pretty to wear cuz' I ain't takin' no busted up woman to a fancy restaurant!" His email read. He knows how to put a smile on my face when I'm in the middle of a tornado storm kind of a day. After reading the email I about jumped out of my desk chair and called him to thank him for this surprise. You start to miss the spontaneity that existed before more important things existed (a baby!) Often times we feel like our life is centered around nap times and bed times. The world stopped revolving around us so much when we became parents. We really have to be intentional and creative in wooing one another in our marriage. With a toddler, everything has to be so planned and organized, but not having to think of anything was really nice. There's something so sweet about sitting and having a conversation with this man, picking his brain and digging deeper into who he is that makes me realize there is so much more to learn. I love that. Having him stop dead in his tracks during dinner to pull my chin and kiss me or notice the delicate material of my lace dress makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel pretty, when honestly, most days when he comes home I look "busted up" for sure. He was joking about it, but it's true! I don't want him to see me just as a mom. I want him to still feel like a naughty teenager when we go on these dates. Even though these kind of dates don't happen as often as they used to
I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was long and eventful and I'm SO glad the week is here. I'm looking forward to sitting at my desk during naps and editing photos while I sip my coffee (Just got a big thing of pumpkin spice coffee creamer!!!!) I'm hoping for many rainy days this week!
