Cherishing the Moment...

We've had lots of sickes going around lately - mostly just hubby and I - thankfully LO has been spared except for a runny nose. We've also been busy with work, the house and life - but most of all, we're just trying to cherish the moments we have together as a family...

Take tonight for instance - Daylight savings has completely thrown LO off - she napped from 3:45-5:15 and then after dinner, we decided to give her a quick bath and then watch Ratatouille for the first time. LO had other ideas - she took her tubby and refused to get out - so I just went with it. We drained the water and I let her play with her little ponies. Then she pooped in the tubby and thought it was the most hysterical thing in the world. Eventually we bribed her out, wrestled her into her horsie pj's, and settled in on the couch. I'm sure we all missed parts of the movie, but we had fun doing it. I was trying to dry out the ponies. LO kept wondering where the "mouse" went when he disappeared off the screen. Hubby decided to try my tofutti ice cream sandwiches, which prompted LO to want one. She was so cute licking it and making a mess. She lasted through the whole movie all the while either laying, jumping, and cuddling on us.

There are a few of these nights in my life that I will always remember - not because anything major happened specifically, but it was just the joy and happiness we shared as a family that means so much to me.
