Just the Girls
Tonight after dinner the girls got on the floor and "wrestled" around. We all had a good time together. Tonight is daddy's first night of working for UPS. He had to leave at 9 and he won't be home until around 3am! Can't wait to hear how it went!
I don't want to embarrass Jerm or anything, but he is awesome! Over the last couple of months I have seen a different side to Jeremy. He is such an amazing father to the girls. I think he has so much more confidence in his abilities as a parent since I have "stepped aside" and gone to work. I have fallen more deeply in love with him because of the way that he loves our little princesses.
My Daddy, My Hero
Hayden was playing with this magnet that Aunt September gave her last weekend. You screw the back on and it lights up. Well, Hayden took the back off and things went flying! I picked the pieces up and put it back together but it wouldn't light up. I was pretty sure that a piece went under the oven, but I couldn't get it. Hayden kept trying and trying to get it to work but it was missing the piece under the oven. When daddy was done doing the dishes (his shift any way) he pulled out the drawer under the oven, found the missing piece, put it back together and got it lighting up again! I wish you could have seen the admiration that shined in Hayden's eyes as she looked up at her daddy-her hero! I saw it alright and I said (out loud) "Dang.....I wanted to be the hero!!" As I stood in the kitchen washing the rest of the dishes I realized that the girls need many heros in their lives and daddy is definitely one of them!
Hayden is beginning to take the next step in her "mommy's little helper" role. She is now trying to physically get Layne to do the things she wants her to do! I have to watch her very carefully. I have caught her trying to pull her hands to play ring around the rosey, to drag her on the floor by her feet, and to pick her up by the neck! She does it with a smile so I can only assume it's out of love!!
Little Layner loves her new view. She is pulling up on everything.
