The wings...

What am I ever going to do when our child decides she is done napping? Besides cry my eyes out of course... I just love the peace and quiet and the potential to get so many things done around the house. Although lately, I must admit, the "so many things" usually means a bowl of ice cream, the couch and maybe a phone call or two... but still, usually the kitchen gets cleaned too and things get picked up for a short period of time, maybe a couple of loads of laundry will get folded.

I am quite thankful, actually! Madelyn is a great sleeper and generally sleeps 12-13 hours every night and takes a 2+ hour nap everyday. Now if only we'll be so lucky with "baby brudder"...

I'm being ambitious today and after I finish this post I plan on making 2 batches (okay, one big batch, split in half) of my Aunt Lisa's yummy chicken enchiladas, and a batch of chocolate chip cookies, and start packing for our trip to Seattle tomorrow...

I suppose I should be quick then! =)

It's always on days like this that Madi decides to wake up early! And, I take a deep breath and remind myself that I need to enjoy every awake moment that I get with our little bug...

Speaking of the little bug, the pictures I have been forgetting to share:

I really don't know what to say about this...

so many of her favorite things, all at once!

Her bike.

Her wings.

Her binki.

It's like a little peace of heaven for a 23-month old, right here on earth!

Eye contact!

It's a miracle... no bother trying to buy a smile!

Especially when she's plugged up!

Sometimes, okay most of the time, I just wish that I could wear butterfly wings and tutus around all day long.

Dressing like a princess on a regular basis,


what a wonderful life...

This is just too much, I know.

I'll stop now.

I hope everyone's having a great hump day... I definitely got a coffee on our way to run a few errands this morning. =)

Caramel latte on ice - you were just what I needed this morning!
