but yesterday's rain didn't curb our happiness. it was my first day at home with both girls completely on my own- no michael, no nana helping out or bringing dinner, no school. it seemed daunting before crosby was born, but i woke up excited for the challenge. and those who know me know that i don't sit still for long, and i don't hang around the house when there's a chance i could maybe get out. (although i am a major homebody, too. guess it's the libra in me- striving for balance- a bit of yin for every yang.) so, we scheduled a lunch date with a friend from work and met at panera for some soup and sandwiches to warm up our tummies while the cold rain poured outside.
other than that, we pretty much did a bit of this:
hanging out in our jammies and stocking piggies...
swinging and napping...
and finally some good ol' fashioned couch jumping while our latest music class tunes blasted on the cd player. i can never get enough of my girl's smile. her laughter. her pure happiness. and couch jumping does it every time. i don't deny her couch jumping. i think it's a must-have for every child to deposit into their memory bank.
after a few skyped phone calls, we wound down for bed at a reasonable time and both girls actually slept reasonably well last night. i can't complain today, but who knows what lies ahead. so sign me up for more of these days- rain or shine- i'll take any day just being with my two littles.
and now for a little game...can you spot the real little??
happy thursday and almost weekend!
