Miss J and Monkey also had a great time with Nanny & Poppy and Gramma & Papa who shared babysitting duty while we were away. We are so lucky to have these grandparents who allow us to have a getaway every now and then!! And while I'm sure we don't know every detail of what went on while we were away, the girls were well behaved (except when Miss J had to get dressed), and I don't think they missed us too much.
I was so excited to see them today. Miss J ran and jumped in my arms for a hug and then continued to dilly-dally her way out of her daycare just as on any other day. And Monkey gave me a big smile, followed by a little cry, just in case I thought for a moment it was OK to be gone that long! After that it was same old same old - naps, time outs, playing, changing into dresses, trying to sneak up the stairs - and a bonus visit with my friend Jill and her 2 kiddos! After a while Monkey did want to be up with me more often, tugging on my pant leg to let me know. I don't know if it was because she was uncomfortable with teething, or I like to think its because she missed me! Then they fought over hugs from Daddy when he came home from work.
Monkey has also transitioned from Crawler to Walker while we were away - that wobbly toddling stage is the best!
Miss J told me the highlights of while we were away, swimming with Nanny, that Gramma gave her "Chocolate crackers!!" and she had Cake again and again. (Are we depriving her of sweets so that this makes her top pics??)
I'll post about our trip over time, and will hopefully include pics - although our computer is so painfully S-L-O-W I may never actually get anything posted if I have to wait for the uploading/editing process!
