Layers of Happiness

Geared up bright and early. Out the door at 5:40am. Raining and cold but no hesitation. Face feels cold from the wind. Smiling by the end of the block. Singing out loud to what on the mp3. Houses are dark. Trusty steel single speed reminds my legs what it means to spin. Body heat tells me I have too many layers.


Do it again with less layer.

Sleeping In

Last night Jake slept for 13hrs. From 7p-8a. We actually made him stay up till 7. At 6:30 last night he was walking up to Amy and I going, "nigh night, nigh night?"

Sadie slept for 12hrs. 8p-8a. She had a little bottle at 6a after 10hrs of sleeping and went back to sleep.

Amy and I celebrated this ocasion with sleeping in also. 9p-8a.

Today I feel like a new man!

My Time Is/ Was Up

My S.A.D. 5 weeks home is up and back to work on Monday. Wait a second. Me and my BFF 1 year old have been having a great time. Sleeping in till 7 (he calls for me, "daddy") cause i will be right there. Breakfast, coffee, Elmo, then playtime from 9 - lunch. Nap time. Then play time till dinner. Then playtime till nigh-nigh at 7:30. This is too good. This time is so special. I will always remember it even if he doesnt. When he is a smelly teenager who wants nothing to do with me, this will be my happy place. SO I extended another 2 weeks.

Heres to the best 7 weeks of my life.

PS. I do get to spend time with Sadie. She also can roll over both ways at 3 months old. Eye carumba.

Yesterday I taught Jake to pull my finger.

Not sad like boo-hoo more like SAD meaning, YEAH! SAD, stay at-home dad. Amy's maternity leave officially ended so now its my turn. I took of 3 weeks for Jake. At first it seemed like a lot, but when I got into the groove I had wished for more. So this time 5 weeks! I know I will want more but the thought of not having to get up at 5 am to go to work but instead get Jake up, watch Elmo, hold Sadie, and spend the day with my little ones is a dream come true. I know it can be hectic but I will never look back and regret the time I get to spend with them when they are so young. So, today is day one of 5 weeks and I already want more.

I always tell Amy how boring Jack Johnson is. She, of course, dissagrees. Today a JJ song came on while I was holding Sadie, she fell right asleep. I guess I win that one.
