Helping Hands

I wish to shout out to everyone what a help my husband and daughter are to keep our home and house functioning. AJ deserves so much love for all the home improvement and just fixit things that he has had to face the last month. We have learned a lot about plumbing, drywall, and various other little things that just keep the world turning. I know that it is hard to come home from work and just have more work to do, especially when it seems that there is always something. It feels like you just begin to feel accomplished and something else comes up. So....

THANK YOU to my wonderful supporting husband and all you other supportive spouses and parents out there!!!!
Helping mom get things done!!

Sleeping w/ Grandpa and food

I had a night out with the Bradley girls last night. We drank some wine, enjoyed some food, and spent most of the time talking about our babies and being moms. I guess we can't get away from being moms now. It was very fun and nice to enjoy each other in a new light.

Since AJ was working late my parents (and grandma Linda) babysat Sam. It sounds like she did really well but woke up about 45 minutes after going to bed. So, Grandpa walked her around to put her back to sleep. The next thing the girls knew, well the picture tells everything....
