On this rainy Wednesday...

Addie & Dex slept in till 6!
We got a sweet hour with Alex before he left on a work trip.
Dex ate his whole bowl of oatmeal, his banana, and half of my oatmeal.
Addie actually ate cereal instead of her normal request, peanut butter toast.
Alex stuck to peanut butter toast. They both can't live with out it.
Dex headed back to bed to sneak in a quick nap before heading out.
I managed to shower, but left the house with wet hair. Again.
Addie got in some Diego TV while I showered.
Addie then gave me a mini lesson on Humpback whales. Good ole Diego the animal rescuer.
Experienced some great fellowship at church.
Addie made sure to look out for her favorite Long Tree (aka Willow) to and from church.
Gobbled up leftovers after we made it home.
Waited for Addie & Dex to fall asleep, then dashed downstairs to get in a run.
Promptly dashed back upstairs after my run, as I heard a chipmunk get stuck in our dryer vent.
Put a hold request at the library for a new book. Left to Tell by Immaculee Ilibagiza.
Packed some more for a visit to my Mom's this weekend.
Struggled all day to get a bottle of Kombucha open. Finally got it open at 3 o'clock.
Dex pulled ever single puzzle down off the shelf. Mess.
Addie put all the puzzles back together. Teamwork.
We finished our second gallon of whole milk this week. That's another love our kids get from their father.
Addie put a pair of socks over her tights. Time to get some bigger slipper socks.
Dex walked all over the house with his new little walker wagon.
Addie put about 10 things on Dexter's head today. Only one of which was actually a hat.
Wrapped cousin Beano's birthday presents, while playing with stamps.
Read My Lucky Day to Addie for about the 100th time.
Filled Alex in on our day over the phone.
Popped some popcorn.
Watched Survivor & Modern family without Alex. Not half as good without him to watch with me.
Finished a bid for a new bride.
Finished knitting a squishy ball for a dear friend of mine. So excited she is going to be a mom super soon!
Showered and this time I actually dried my hair.

I want to capture these moments. My days are long, but these years are going fast. Sweet little Dexter is one and my baby girl will be three in November. Time is escaping us. Oh how I love my little ones and I want to be present for each and every moment.
