Only Child Weekend

Katie and Michael both got to be only children for the weekend. Michael went to visit with Todd's parents at their house in Ruby and Katie stayed home with Todd and I. Michael left Saturday morning by 10:00 so it was just the three of us. He got back tonight around 7:00.

It was nice to have some one on one time with Katie while Michael was enjoying himself with his grandparents. Yesterday we got to read books with Katie and she brought out the fish game to play. This is her new favorite thing to do. The fish have magnets on them and move around the board while music plays. It's cute to watch her trying to catch the fish.

Both days, she took a long afternoon nap. Todd and I were able to get some stuff done around the house and in the yard. Katie played outside this morning because the weather was so beautiful today. And played outside some more after she woke up. I think she could have stayed out there all day long.

Todd and I really enjoyed having Katie to ourselves for a day. I get to spend time alone with Katie during the week but it's rare for Todd & I to have alone time with her. What made it even better is that we knew that Michael was having a good time without us. We missed him and were glad to have him back. We are so lucky to have both Katie and Michael but it's nice to be able to have special time alone with each child!

That was nice that you had some special time with Katie. I very rarely get any special time with just Mariele. I guess that happens when you have more than one kid.

That's great! We have to find a way to get Katie and Will together sometime.
