It was October break this week here in Phoenix, which means school was out and my main day care was closed! Which I’m A-OK with!! I immediately planned two days where I could be home with Jace and on Monday I captured almost every hour of our wonderful day together. I felt like a stay-at-home-mommy and it was incredible. We made smoothies in the morning, baked muffins, went to the Chop Shop with Daddy for lunch, stopped in quick to Tempe Camera to drop my lens off, danced to the Beach Boys, got out the Halloween decorations, met Grandma for shaved ice and then ended our fabulous day with Sarah and James at Vertuccio Farms. I ran this kid ragged all day, and I think he only napped for like 25 minutes. I’m definitely finding out how important it is to have things planned with a toddler. They get bored easily and need to be engaged with something, almost constantly, ha. So I made sure we were out and about, eating and playing a lot. It was so nice to have time with little boy this past week. I still can’t get enough of him.
Jace & Me
We recently stayed at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge for my work banquet. The first night we took Jace and had a party in the room. Jace slept in between us all night, in the big fancy King size hotel bed. We woke up to a little boy staring at us and then giving us big kisses. Rob wanted to stay in bed a little longer, so Jace and I got up and I made us parfaits to enjoy on the balcony! It was so fun having Jace to myself! I say this only because the minute Rob is up, it’s Daddy and Jace time. And Mom (me) sort of floats to the background. So moments when I have Jace to myself are really special to me. It’s then I can have all of his attention! So, we ate our parfaits on the balcony while it still wasn’t too hot and sticky out and watched the activity down below. I also flipped through the latest issue of Highroads with my coffee .. I guess it was a relaxing morning for myself as well!
