Lydia Day

Sorry Mom! I know I have totally slacked on getting photos of your Liddy-Bitty on here. Here are a few moments from a couple recent Lydia days, including the one that I blogged about in "My Motherhood Game Plan". Photos AND a video!

"Lydia Day is a day I focus totally on doing things that I know Lydia loves to do. Our last Lydia Day was this past Wednesday. My husband went in to work a little late so that he could spend breakfast with Lydia. While they ate, I went outside and set up a little surprise. Lydia has been asking everyday to go pick strawberries like we did a month ago. Unfortunately, strawberry season is over. Instead, I scattered a pint of strawberries throughout our backyard. Lydia was so excited to get to “pick strawberries” and then eat them with mommy on a blanket in the sun. Next we went swimming with friends, then out to hamburgers at her favorite restaurant. I even sat down and watched a new cartoon with her (instead of running off to empty the dishwasher or check my email). She was in heaven. To be honest, so was I. Spending such a concentrated amount of time with her reminds me how fun being a mom can be. A day of no housework isn’t too bad either."

Oh I love you Natalie. You were such a good big sister growing up; it's so nice seeing those qualities have only been strengthened by motherhood.
...real motherhood, not the kind where you pretend to have two much-too-old-to-your-children, named Aspen and Rhapsody.

How precious is that! You really have a sweet little girl. I clearly believe like mother like daughter. You seem to have a sweet disposition yourself.
