Day 4...so far so good!

We're missing Jon a lot but I've been able to talk to him on the phone. And sometimes its nice to be away from your spouse for a while to start missing each other again! Bennett and I have been having lots of fun and have kept our days full. Yesterday we had a playdate with my good friend, Erin, and her 6 mo. old girl, Larae. She's the cutest little smiley thing and Bennett loved talking to her. He would lay on the floor next to her and pat her on the back and then look up at me and say, "she's so cute!". He thought it was hilarious to give her her paci and then yank it out, over and over. Luckily she tolerated it just fine!
Today we went to the Ankeny splash park. We had a lot of fun there but I knew it was time to go when Bennett was wandering from towel to towel, snacking on anyone else's food he came across! He had a wonderfully long afternoon nap and then our great friend Manda, brought her kids, Madeline and Eli over. They're 8 and 6 so they were perfect entertainment. Next stop, my parents for dinner. Only 4 more days as a single parent...Bennett's going to be so excited to see Daddy again. He asks about him a couple times a day.

  1. We had so much fun yesterday!! The kids (and me too) went on and on about Bennett telling Chad all the funny things he said and did while we were there. We TOTALLY need to get together more often than once every 6 months! What does next week look like for you guys??
