I remember Memorial Day last year. I had just finished six months of fertility treatments and was taking a break. In a few weeks I was going to have surgery to look for endometriosis, and try to find out what was going on with me. Fast forward a year, and we are at the lake with two kids!
I did spent part of Memorial Day feeling torn about that. Bradley is so much fun right now. He loves to play and swim in the water, and he can do so many fun things. Little Ellie needed me, and spent a lot of her day sleeping in the pack n play in Gigi and Pop Pop's room. It is tough having two! You want to be with both!
Chris and I took turns with Ellie so we could both play in the water with Bradley. Bradley and I took the kayak out for a spin. I was worried about Bradley's attention span, so we didn't venture too far. But, he was the quietest I have ever seen him while we were riding. He just let his little hands float in the water, and thought it was awesome. We talked about all of the cool stuff we saw, ducks, boats, dogs, and waves. He is just at the best stage right now, I love it!
Getting ready to leave!
They actually went pretty fast!
Sweet Ellie actually had sort of a rough day. She had a hard time napping, and just getting settled. She was quite a handful by the time we got home. But, she is starting to sleep for longer and longer stretches at night...more on that later (I don't want to jinx it!)
