This past week was our first full week on our own! Leinna is still attending day care 3 days a week which is helpful for both her and I. She loves her friends and Ms. Sarah at day care and as for Momma, she can get house work done :o)
So on the days Leinna is home, house work is put aside and we have some fun!
We've had amazing weather the past week and enjoyed our time outside.
With fresh puddles in the driveway...
Who could resist!
We had loads of fun running back and forth until she slipped and fell in the puddle. The picture above does not show very well how wet and muddy she was. After a quick hug for reassurance that she was okay, she was right back into running back and forth in the puddle.
When we were not outside, Leinna found it very entertaining to read books to Lukkas.
Thanks to my sister-in-law, Emily, Lukkas now has an owl hat too!
I think I'm going to have to find the pattern and make a Momma and Papa owl hats :o)
Amazing that Lukkas has been with us for a month already! He's changed so much already and I'm reminded to take time to cherish these moments because it really does go by too quickly. Lukkas is very different from Leinna in so many ways - I knew they weren't going to be exactly the same, but it's like being a brand new parent again because he is so different than she was. For example, Leinna HATED to be swaddled or snuggled with. She was good with hanging out on the floor until she needed to be fed. Even when she was falling asleep, she preferred to lay by herself and would dose off on her own. Lukkas on the other hand is very much a snuggler and loves to be swaddled. He tolerates hanging out on his own for maybe 5 to 10 minutes and then lets such a cute little cry out that says, "I'm lonely and need a hug."
Once he's back in your arms, he's content to observe the world from there.
Have a wonderful week and know that we love and miss each and everyone of you who follow our adventures!
