Happy Monday!

Alex got home from his business trip around 1:30am on Saturday morning. Needless to say, I couldn't keep my eyes open long enough to stay up until he arrived. Amelia woke around 9:30am and Alex jumped out of bed to get her. He hadn't seen her since Monday. He missed his girl! I got out of bed and made monkey bread before heading to April's lingerie shower.

Here's my girl patiently waiting for her piece of monkey bread.

Here's the recipe for those of you who want to try it!

We went out to eat yesterday after church. Amelia was being a good girl...just sitting there drinking her milk. She refused any food though and then wanted me to hold her. She just layed her head down on my shoulder and wouldn't eat. Alex finished his meal - I got mine to go - and we came home and took a nap. I guess she was just too tired to eat. Yet another way she is not like her Mama.

After getting Amelia to bed. Alex and I watched the new Hallmark movie that was on TV last night. It was so good. I bawled like a baby.

We woke up at 9:30 this morning. I am so thankful for a baby that sleeps well. Seriously. I'm always exhausted from the weekend and I think Amelia is too. I usually won't wake up on Monday mornings until she wakes me up. She started her day with buttered toast and a cup of milk. One of her favorites. I started mine with a cup of caramel/vanilla creme coffee. One of my favorites.

I fixed Amelia some noodles for lunch today. She insisted on feeding herself with a fork. There were more noodles in her lap than in her mouth, so I finally went over and started picking them up and feeding them to her with my bare hands. She then insisted on feeding me noodles with her hands. I let her. It was the only way she would let me feed her. Ya do what ya gotta do!

I made myself a list of things that I wanted to accomplish around the house today and I'm actually getting them done! Amelia has been very cooperative and playing well on her own today. Every so often she brings me a book to read or her magna doodle to write her a note...then she's off to play some more.

We're having a great day. I hope you are too!

Love to all,

Yum! I used to love monkey bread as a kid so I can't wait to make it this weekend! I thought it would be great with having extra people at the house (although, I might have to make two!) for Drake's party.

Oh, my gosh! I watched ten minutes of that stupid movie and I was crying. Not a good movie choice for a widow!!!

The monkey bread looks delicious. :)
