celebrating a birthday over here…


i guess january isn’t entirely all bad, because my man has a birthday today! we started the celebrations over the weekend when i stole him away from work friday night and surprised him with a night away from the littles. we aren’t quite ready to leave the kids for more than one night, or go very far for that matter (wimpy new parents!), so we stayed in the city for the night at the ace hotel and enjoyed half of saturday together in the city without our babes (a major perk of finding the city’s best babysitter). it was really wonderful to be together just the two of us and also get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep! been a couple of years for us both since that has happened….

^^^we also finally caught the new (or should i say old considering today’s date) james bond movie, skyfall. yes, i know it came out in november but also, we have two kids and i can’t even remember the last time we went to a movie because, you know, two kids. also,  best bond movie ever, right? ^^^


happy birthday, josh davis! my goodness, i love you so.

    Looks like you made the most of your little slice of alone time! It’s clear you are such a dedicated mother. My mom worked, and she was great, but I vividly remember the joy of being six years old and spending all summer together when she took maternity leave with my brother. It’s wonderful that your kiddos get that every day!
