Sunshiney Days

Doug's mom left early this morning.

At 9 a.m. I took Max to Kindergarten orientation and had to face the reality of my little boy starting real school in a few months.

This afternoon I finished my current book "New Moon" by Stephenie Meyer. (More about it later.)

I also realized that Doug's vacation is coming to an end and he'll be gone full-time again starting on Monday.

All of these things have combined to snap me back into reality a little too harshly. After the relaxing, worry-free week I've had, I'm feeling a severe sense of loss.

Luckily, I have a little something to ease the pain:

(Gabriel had a bit of jaundice so he's outside getting a little sunshine therapy in these pictures. This was before the Doctor told us, "Just don't put him in direct sunlight. Make sure it's filtered through a window." Don't worry...he didn't get sunburned.)

How dare that mean Reality get in the way of your babymoon!! Just rude! But what a wonderful thing to have to ease the shock! Auri was jaundice too, but had to get phototherepy in the hospital. She came out with this amazing tan! Everyone kept asking me if her daddy was hispanic!! You'd never think that now, though! LOL!

Anyway - take care and cuddle that little angel once for me!
