On week two of my 'happily-married-trial-separation' I headed up to the inlaws. A special thing happened. My mother-in-law took charge of Abbey in the morning leaving me alone with my little love, Hayden. I got to wake up with her and spend a lot of time looking at her, playing with toes, and smiling. It was a luxury I took full advantage of and truly bonded with my second child. What a blessing.

How GREAT that #1 was entertained a bit so #2 could be your number one for a bit. That is such a luxury. And ADORABLE pics. You are so good to capture YOU in some of your family's shots. Gotta do that more.

I just love that little mug. I miss her. Don't let that chub go away before December :). (Hayden's. You don't have chub. And if you did, I wouldn't let you get rid of it, either.)
