Two hands for 2 1/2 hours…

Guess what I did between 10:30 and 1:00!?…

I…played with Quinn, washed and folded 2 loads of laundry, paid bills, sorted through a few paper piles, cleaned the microwave, put clean sheets on our bed, made and ate lunch with Quinn, made some phone calls, made a “Fruit of the Spirit” book for Q, checked and responded to emails…and everything in between…

“How was I so productive?”…might you ask?!…

Well…here is your answer…Fruit of the Spirit 035Fruit of the Spirit 034Is that not the sweetest thing you’ve ever seen?!! My “hold me all of the time” baby slept in his OWN crib for the first time for 2 1/2 hours, my friends! Now, don’t get me wrong…he will sleep on his playmat or his bassinet during the day. But, NEVER for this long!!! And, how great that it was in his sweet room! Hopefully this is a sign of MANY good nap times to come because it’s amazing how much I can get accomplished with only one big boy to entertain! {And, with TWO hands!!!} …

Keep it up, Mr. Man!

P.S. Don’t misunderstand me..this is not a complaint! I LOVE getting to hold my chunky little monkey! And, I know that one day he will be way too big to cuddle so close!…and I’m soaking up every moment!!!

Fantastic news! It'll happen more and more now...amazing how much you can accomplish with a child right there with you-stuff that would have seemed tough before a new baby. Way to go momma!

I love the orange circle pillow from Target. It's in my daughter's room, too!
