Weekends...


.... are the best. It's not like we, as new parents, really catch up on sleep on the weekends, as we used to do, but still... the weekends are precious times to spend with our boy and our girl. The weekends help alleviate the working-mother guilt I carry around like a truck of potatoes. Our fantastic (and reliable!) nanny helps alleviate that as well. I do not worry about the kids when I am at work, because I know Staci will take care of both of them, not call me with some ridiculous drama, and just simply do the job of caring for our munchkins. We are so thankful for her, and the love she has for James and Stella. An answer to prayers...



James is a fully self-sufficient eater now, with all sorts of developing opinions and attitudes (some of that attitude, we are going to have to put an end to, and quickly). Stella is growing like a flower, not a weed, because she is too precious to be a weed! She seems to be wise beyond her nine weeks, and is exceptionally alert (all hail the genius flag!) We are tired, oh-so-very-tired... but our little family is still the most amazing gift, and for that I am thankful.

Jason and I are "in training" for a 5K race at the end of April. We'll see how that goes. Today at the park, we might have died running, but I blame the 80 pound stroller, and the uphill climbs. :)
