A Random Tuesday via Instagram

John has been out of town since Friday morning. 5 days. He gets home tomorrow and we could not be more ready. Last night was rough. I never sleep well when he's gone and both kids woke up several times during the night. I got a total of about 3 hours of sleep. 

I decided in order to have a somewhat good day I needed a good breakfast. All I really did was fry 2 eggs. The other parts were super easy. It was a yummy healthy breakfast that got me through the morning.

While I was eating breakfast I turned on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the kids. I looked over and saw Emma looking at Hudson and he had his sweet little hand on her bouncy seat.

I had some laundry to put away in Hudson's room and so he played in there for a while and Emma hung out in his crib. She was kicking and so happy in there. Hudson seemed to be a little jealous that he wasn't in there playing with her. 

While I was unloading the dishwasher this afternoon I looked behind me and Hudson had lined up all of these pans and plastic containers. He kept adjusting them to make sure they were perfectly straight. He gets that OCD-ness from his daddy for sure!

Hudson had leftover spaghetti for dinner tonight which always means a bath right after. He loves the bath and had fun playing. Emma and I were in there with him and he almost threw a fit over wanting my Sonic ice. With only 3 hours of sleep and solo parenting for 5 days I let him have it. And he was happy.

After both babies were bathed and jammied up, I took a picture of them together on the couch. Hudson has been a finger sucker since he was about 3 months old. Emma will sort of take a paci sometimes but since she's been sleeping unswaddled I had noticed she was sucking on something on the video monitor...just not sure exactly what it was. It wasn't until I was looking through my photos that I noticed they were doing the exact same thing. Needless to say, this is the new picture on my lock screen on my phone.

Today ended up being a great day. We played outside, watched more tv than we should have, and read a ton of books and played with lots of cars and blocks. I'm exhausted but I would not have traded today for anything else. 


  1. I'm glad the kiddos took it easy on you! Love the new lock screen photo. Too cute!!

  2. I'm so impressed with your "fancy" breakfast. I am sooooooooo lazy when it comes to cooking breakfast!! I love fried eggs but it's too much trouble and it means I have to clean another pan! Ha!!
