I love nights like tonight. I usually get home from work between 3:45-4:00. When I come home, I see a sweet little baby boy reaching his arms out to me because he missed me during the day and he wants a hug and for his momma to hold him. It never gets old and it makes me smile every time.
I also see toys, crumbs, hand prints, dust, and dishes. Sometimes it's hard for me to remember that cleaning can wait until Ryan goes to bed. I come home and want to pick up cars, sweep up the crumbs from the kitchen floor, check my hotmail since I can't at work, lay on the couch and relax. There is so many things I want to do when I first come home, but playing with my baby is always at the top of my list. Sometimes I forget and start doing dishes, or windex little handprints off of my coffee table. Today I didn't forget. I came home and updated my blog while Ryan sat on my lap and watched- which was easy since I already had the pictures uploaded. Then we went for a walk and played at the park. I let him slide down the slide by himself and caught him at the bottom. =( He's getting so big. I made bean and cheese quesadillas for Ryan and myself. (Daddy wasn't hungry.) I splurged on some blueberries the other day and fed them to Ryan. Why are blueberries so expensive?? Ryan loves them though. We played with balls and books. I gave him a bath. We read some books, snuggled on the floor, took pictures, giggled, had a baby conversation- I have no idea what he talks about.
& Now that Ryan is peacefully sleeping in his crib I can vacuum my rug, sweep up crumbs, dust the handprints, and wash out sippy cups.
PS- Happy first birthday, sweet baby Peyton!
