Well done

After a long day at the babysitter's, Will was a tired kiddo when I got home from work.  So he ate, got into jammies and was asleep in his crib before 7pm.  He awoke at 3am fussing, so I sleepily nursed him and then changed his very full diaper, which was about to burst.  As I zipped up his jammies, he looked up at me through the darkness in the room, with a full tummy and a dry diaper, and started clapping.

As exhausted as we moms are when we have to wake up in the middle of the night to care for hungry, or wet, or sick, or crying babies, it's all worth it when your baby applauds you. 

I love my little munchkin!

Leaf Me Alone

The leaves are really starting to come down in the yard, so we took advantage of the nice afternoon and made a leaf pile.  The kids (and the dog) loved jumping and playing in the leaves, and Jason loved raking them up over and over again (wink).

Is there any better fall activity than playing in the leaves?!!
