Missing Chris

Chris left yesterday to go on a business trip and this is the first time I've been overnight with Taylor without him and boy do I miss him. I always miss him when he's gone, but I now appreciate all that he does with Taylor when he comes home from work. I hate to use the phrase 'help out' because he takes such an active role in what goes on with her that it's more like a tag-out for me when he comes home. Just wanted to say 'Thank you Chris' for being such an awesome dad and husband! Your girls can't wait for you to come home tomorrow!!!

Mia(Chris' mom, that's her name instead of Grandma for Taylor) and Aunt KK have offered to help out if I needed a break, so Taylor and I went to dinner with them tonight. Taylor was just full of smiles and happy noises that she normally has for Chris when he gets home from work. She just loves her daddy time and I know that Mia and Aunt KK enjoyed taking advantage of it tonight. Here's a picture of Taylor giving KK a high-five.

To keep Chris in the loop of what happens while he's gone on his trip, I try to take pictures. I even do this while he's at work all day so that he can see what we did. Yesterday was Taylor's discovery of the link/ring. Her grip has gotten so strong that she would hold on to the ring for at least 5 minutes. Of course Taylor had to figure out what this new thing was in her hand and so it went straight in the mouth.

Here is one of Taylor's funny habits. Within minutes of being put down in her bassinet in the middle, she manuevers herself into a diagonial position. Never fails. On top of this, she is anti-blanket right now. Once the blanket is covering her legs, she will lift them over and over until the blanket is up around her waist. So she now gets footie pjs at night to keep her warm. What a funny little girl!

Love ~ Wendy
