On a particularly crappy TUESday, two things that seem to brighten my mood:
Open-mouthed toddler kisses.
A hot shower, an old silk scarf, some lip stick, and project runway re-runs while the baby sleeps.
Both of us are crabby today. Conrad cried for his "mey-mey" and was rubbing his eyes at 10:00am, I figured it was nap time. I rocked him until he was asleep TWICE, both times he cried when I laid him down. I said screw this, you're going to bed! He cried for another 16 minutes. Now he's out and I've stopped shaking and trying not to cry myself! I HATE that it has to come to crying himself to sleep sometimes. I hate that, but sometimes, it's the only way.
After my morning run on Saturday with the ladies,
I went to an estate sale with my mother in law and purchased these lovely plates and candy dish.
I'm kind of obsessed with milk glass at the moment.
This weekend, I spent my day with this little red headed beauty.
Afterwards, Adam and Sarah got a babysitter and we dumped
Conrad off at grandmas so we could go on a double date and eat some BBQ.
Dustin schooled me on making a proper "rue" sauce....
My mac n cheese sauce usually separates and is thick and clumpy.
Dustin still eats it to be nice.
Conrad carried his "NAY" all over the house.
And I annoyed my husband by taking photos of him cooking.
A pile of cheese.
After his bath, he ran all over the house dripping water everywhere,
refusing to put clothes on his naked little self.
While we cuddled Saturday morning, I told Conrad I loved him and he replied,
"I ob-ooo mommy." My heart broke into a million little pieces.
My little man always knows how to brighten my spirit when I'm feeling down.
