After changing his diaper, nursing and playing I get to enjoy breakfast. My original plan was to have strawberries, vanilla yogurt and granola but we were out of vanilla yogurt. So I had my second favorite breakfast: Life Cinnamon cereal.
After eating breakfast, I put Colton in his bouncy chair and start cleaning things up. A few minutes later, Colton is out. Yes folks, he's that easy of a baby. Didn't have to do a thing. I think it was the man upstair's way of making up for the colic baby we had the first go-round.
After eating breakfast, nursing, playing and all the other good things that the morning brings, Colton is napping again and I decide it's time to make Kaden another tie shirt. He is in love with his other tie shirt and cries when it's dirty. So the solution is to make more shirts! He loved it!
Eventually Colton wakes up and is SUPER upset. He's been arching his back all morning so it has to be gas. It's tough being a newborn.
But after a few bicycle kicks and lots of tummy rubbing, we pushed that fluffer right out of him and he was as good as new.
It stopped raining and turned hot and muggy again. So Kaden knocked on our neighbor's door, asking if his friend could come out and play. They played in the pool while us mommy's sprayed them with hoses. It's the only way to escape the southern heat.
The weather turned, once again, and it was pouring outside. Raining cats and dogs. Kaden stared out the window longingly. He loves playing in the rain.
A couple weeks ago, I took Kaden outside to play in the rain. We had galoshes on, used an umbrella and jumped in the puddles together. We had a blast. Kaden hasn't forgotten it since. He asked if he could play in the rain but since Colton was awake, I wasn't able to. So I let him run around right outside our house.
Then comes what seems like the longest stretch of time - waiting for daddy to come home. We just kinda hang out until that blessed time.
