When the boys are both in school Jess and I have a small window of "just us" time. Now that she no longer naps in the morning it means outings and activities for mother and daughter.

Since today is such a snowy day and I didn't feel like going out, we sat by the window and experimented with watercolors. She was more intrigued by sticking her brush in the water and playing and poking her fingers in the paint! So, we decided to forget the brushes and paint with our fingers. The result was a fingerprint masterpiece that I'll put in a little frame for the office.

Jess' watercolor creation.

I hope you enjoy your weekend. Tonight I'm going down to the restaurant for a late dinner with Jon, tomorrow we'll run errands, hangout with my sister and parents and clean for an open house we're having on Sunday.

  6. I love that one-on-one time. I know that time is special for our babes to get, but sometimes I think it's really the Mama's heart that needs it most.

  7. She is just the sweetest! What a little artist! And ah, I just can't get enough of her hair, it's so cute. As much as I'm dreading Dallas starting school in some ways I'm also a bit excited to be able to have a little one on one time with Tallulah (while the new baby naps or something, haha) during the day.
