Life has been so full and busy lately. And with the holidays and a certain someone's first birthday just around the corner, our days are bound to move at an even faster pace. I can hardly believe my Little Peapod will be one in a few month's time! All the moms at daycare keep saying how Maribelle is losing her baby face and starting to look like a toddler now. Where has my baby gone?!?!? It seems like it wasn't all that long ago that she was this noisy little grunty lump of a baby that we would swaddle and carry around the house in the crook of our arms. And now, that same little girl wants to do everything for herself, without much of mommy or daddy's assistance.
Yes, the days go so fast.
So Jeremy took us to his favorite spot over the weekend so we could take it slow for a few hours. I have to admit, there was a bit of resistance on my part because frankly, I have an issue with relaxing. I would much rather run some errands or do something that puts us ahead of things. But then I just end up cranky and exhausted, and that's not what makes for a good mommy.
So, on Sunday, we played.
And we enjoyed the view.
We relaxed, as a family, and it felt oh so good.
