John has been out of town since Friday morning. 5 days. He gets home tomorrow and we could not be more ready. Last night was rough. I never sleep well when he's gone and both kids woke up several times during the night. I got a total of about 3 hours of sleep.
I decided in order to have a somewhat good day I needed a good breakfast. All I really did was fry 2 eggs. The other parts were super easy. It was a yummy healthy breakfast that got me through the morning.
While I was eating breakfast I turned on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the kids. I looked over and saw Emma looking at Hudson and he had his sweet little hand on her bouncy seat.
I had some laundry to put away in Hudson's room and so he played in there for a while and Emma hung out in his crib. She was kicking and so happy in there. Hudson seemed to be a little jealous that he wasn't in there playing with her.
While I was unloading the dishwasher this afternoon I looked behind me and Hudson had lined up all of these pans and plastic containers. He kept adjusting them to make sure they were perfectly straight. He gets that OCD-ness from his daddy for sure!
Hudson had leftover spaghetti for dinner tonight which always means a bath right after. He loves the bath and had fun playing. Emma and I were in there with him and he almost threw a fit over wanting my Sonic ice. With only 3 hours of sleep and solo parenting for 5 days I let him have it. And he was happy.
After both babies were bathed and jammied up, I took a picture of them together on the couch. Hudson has been a finger sucker since he was about 3 months old. Emma will sort of take a paci sometimes but since she's been sleeping unswaddled I had noticed she was sucking on something on the video monitor...just not sure exactly what it was. It wasn't until I was looking through my photos that I noticed they were doing the exact same thing. Needless to say, this is the new picture on my lock screen on my phone.
Today ended up being a great day. We played outside, watched more tv than we should have, and read a ton of books and played with lots of cars and blocks. I'm exhausted but I would not have traded today for anything else.
