My girls are gone.
Yup, gone. For 6 whole days! (insert sad sigh and frowny face) Chad's parents flew here from New Orleans Saturday and then flew to Orlando with our girls on Sunday. They took Adeline and Emilia to Disney for a whole week! Needless to say, the girls are very excited about their trip. And I'm excited for them because I know they're having a ton of fun. But it was VERY hard to let them go. I've never been away from them for more than one night!
Here's my very cute little grown-up girl pulling her own carry-on.
So, yes, it's very quiet here this week. Except of course for Tate's grunting. He grunts a lot. Especially during church - or maybe it just seems louder in church.
Although I miss my girls like CRAZY, it is nice having some alone time with Tate. I'm pretty sure he's enjoying it too. He's been giving me a lot of smiles. It's nearly impossible to capture them on camera, of course, but here's my attempt:
Come on, Tate. Give mama a smile. Pleeease!
There it is! It's not his BIG smile, but a cute one none the less.
I forgot to mention that this was Papa Brooks' first time meeting his only grandson. It was pretty special.
And because our only complete family photo was taken in the hospital in my nursing gown, we had Chad's parents take one of us all together before the girls left:
I'm afraid Tate may be getting a little spoiled to all this alone time with mama. But I'm pretty sure he misses his sisters too. Especially when Millie shares all of her toys with him:
Luckily, I have plenty to keep me busy this week so I don't get too lonely. I'm having a garage sale this Friday and Saturday (in 50 degree weather - Brrrr!) and you all know how insane I am about having a perfect garage sale! So, it's off to labeling more clothes...
Hopefully the girls will call again soon...
