Day 12 Wednesday

It was another early running day for us.

Today was the most challenging day yet for me. It was hot, the sun was blaring and I just wanted to stop.

But we pushed through.

Layla fell asleep almost the entire time.

She was awoken with a big splash…

I couldn’t WAIT to get in that water.

Fortunately for us, we were pretty much the only ones there.


We completely ran through the water spouts. haha

It felt wonderful.

We came home, hung out with Amy for a little bit…and then got ready for the day.

Peanut enjoyed her bath. 😉

She hung out in her pack and play while I got ready.

All was going well until I started to dry my hair.

Oh my gosh.


For the first time ever, she just cried and screamed and wanted to be picked up immediately.

I turned the hair dryer off and she calmed down.

There was nothing I could do to make her see that it was ok.

You can only imagine what that meant for my hair. haha

It was most definitely going to be a hat day.

Layla was very pleased with that decision.

She thinks it is just hilarious to get up under the bill of my hat.

That face. :)

…and this one! haha

…they just keep getting better! 😉

We ran a few errands, then came home and hung out.

Layla was caught trying to turn the TV on. 😉

What’s wrong with this thing??

Those legs just crack me up!

She was a good girl today. :)

She always is.

She was ready to go to bed relatively early tonight…and I’m about to follow right behind her. 😉

Day 11 Tuesday

We cleaned all morning.

Scratch that.

I cleaned. Layla watched.

From her pack and play.

She loves to try to get through the mesh lining.

Look at those legs!

Nom. Nom. Nom. Nom.


Time to play.

Sticking out her tongue…

…Just like daddy.

Layla got a bath.

And there goes that tongue again!


So cute.

Ham it up!

We got dressed.

And played.

We ate lids.

And crawled all over the place.

Later that day, we took a trip to Marshalls to look around and get out of the house.

Layla was a very good girl in the store. She is going through a shy stage right now… sort of a stranger anxiety phase.

She will smile at some people and start to cry when others approach her or talk to her.

We came back home and played a little more then got ready to go to bed.

It was a productive day. :)

Day 10 Monday

We started the day running in Visalia with Amy.

We tried out a new park, which had more inclines than I prefer. haha

Layla didn’t mind… she went right to sleep.

She was OUT. 😉

Then we met up with some girls at Panera to discuss a new bible study book for fall.

I had a delicious french toast bagel and I’ve been craving another one ever since!

Layla woke up and was ready to ham it up.

Then she decided to be camera shy.


Changed her mind again.

Time to ham it up.

Hey there!

Look at me. I’m adorable.

…and, within minutes… this:

Nap time!

Once we arrived back home, she was wide awake and ready to play!

Want to see me balance?

I’m pretty champy at it.

We hung out at home, cleaned a bit and played some more.

I was so exhausted by the end of the day, that I decided to call it an early night.

We’ve had some long days, late nights…and early mornings lately. 😉
