i kind of like mondays. they are a fresh start. and i always seem to want a fresh start after the weekend.

i kind of fell apart this weekend. it seemed busier than normal...long days of sweating in the heat, no napping, and a wired, clingy baby. it's interesting, the phases baby's go through. this age, as much as it is my very favorite yet (as they all are), is exhausting. yesterday, at church, as i was wrangling my son away from all things he shouldn't be into/doing, a woman came up to me and commented on my "spirited child".  isn't that mom-code for "out-of-control"? i'm pretty sure it is. and after a drawn-out process of trying to unsuccessfully get him to sleep on saturday night, i had to call cortney up, hand him our happy-to-not-be-in-bed baby boy, and walk away. i didn't say much. just went and laid on our bed.

thank goodness for husbands that don't ask too many questions, and babies that can make any tiring day better by snuggling with me.

here's to a new week!

and....we are flying back to utah to see our families this week! yay!

That is too funny! I think people forget how busy babies are!! Church is definitely different with kids! i am glad you too have moments were we need to take a break. Good to hear I am not the only one. xoxo
