We have had a nice, quiet weekend so far. The temperatures have taken another dip down, so we haven’t been outdoors as much as we would like to be, but we’ve found plenty to keep us occupied with indoors – like blocks, books, and baby dolls.
Yesterday my husband got up early and surprised our oldest daughter with a daddy/daughter date at the pancake restaurant. He snapped a picture with his phone and sent it to me so that I could see her smile.
With an almost five year age difference between Jillian and the little kids, it is important to Christopher and I that she gets some one on one time with each of us so that she knows we love her and value her, too (even though it might seem like the louder, less independent younger kids eat up a lot of our attention).
Plus, pancakes twice in one week? Who wouldn’t love that?

For those of you who are fans of PBS Kids, I wanted to mention that on Monday February 18th there will be a Dinosaur Train special. We got a chance to preview this Submarine Adventure and it was pretty cute. Check your local listings for the air time.
Also, I wanted to tell you about a blog I’ve recently discovered that I have been really enjoying and that I think you might like, too. It is called Bliss Beyond Naptime.
We’ve got company coming for a visit today, so I should scoot off of here and get this lovely Sunday started.
Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!
