Hello ROUTINE! It's nice to see ya!

DaddyBoy is back to work today after two full weeks of being home with us.  Those two weeks flew by way too fast, & we are definitely missing our DaddyBoy today.  These past couple of weeks have been such a precious time for our little family, & we have savored each & every moment!  Last night, while we were cleaning up after dinner {with Jett helping by hanging on the top rack of the dishwasher} Jared looked at me, a little teary eyed, & said to me, "I am so glad to have had these two weeks with you guys.  Look at him {referring to little Jett man}, he has changed SO much over the past two weeks!  He is a little boy now!" Boy oh boy, is Jared right.  Jett has had so many noticeable changes happen over this past month than ever before!  I am so glad we all got to share in his little leaps & bounds as a family!  We had much laughter, much lounging, & a very relaxing & memorable Christmas break.  But you know how the saying goes...all great things must come to an end.  So this morning I kissed Jared & sent him on his way back to work!

I thought for sure that today would be kind of depressing, but surprisingly, getting back into a routine & schedule was a breath of fresh air!  Jett & I spent our morning playing cars, beating drums, & pushing that darn dinosaur round & round the house. While Jett napped,  I tidied up the house & prepped it for some major cleaning here in the upcoming days, listed out our meals for the week, scribbled a to-do list for this month, & ran a couple of errands! I think Jett enjoyed things being back to "normal" as well.  He napped right on time & better than he had all Christmas break!  I absolutely love being able to let all of our daily routines & responsibilities relax every now & again & I find it totally necessary in order to "recharge" from the daily grind.  But I have to admit that having my trusty routine back in place puts a little skip in my step, as well!

So off I go!  To do laundry, change sheets, pick up scattered toys, & make endless to-do lists!  Call me crazy, but I've missed it all just a bit!

Oh, & by now it probably goes without saying, but my daily "routine" wouldn't be actually be "routine" without any pictures!  So here are a few from this morning!

{He is the biggest ham these days & I just eat it up!}
