Daddy Time

This weekend was Jen's annual weekend at the beach with her friends from college. She took Grace up with her on Friday and she spent the night with the girls. I went up on Saturday morning to get Grace and keep her with me for the rest of the weekend. I think it was good for Jen to get a night away and it was good for me to have some time alone with Grace. I have to admit I was a bit nervous but still very much looking forward to having some daddy time with Grace. This would be the first time that I have been on my own with Grace all day and overnight. So I did what any guy would do in my situation, I called my mom. Well not really but we did go visit with her and one of my aunts that had not met Grace. The nighttime routine went really well (although we skipped the bath) and Grace slept through the night. Since I have been back to work Jen has been spending a lot more time with Grace during the day so I wasn't sure how she would take a change in her morning routine. Luckily it didn't seem to bother her. I do have a bit more respect for what Jen does every day while I am working. Taking care of Grace is a lot of work, by the time Jen got home the house was a complete mess and I was collapsed on the couch. Overall though it was a pretty good weekend. Some pics from the past week below...

Oh MY Word. Those shots of her in her adorable little swim suit and glasses are gorgeous! She's just beautiful.

Good for you taking Grace for the whole weekend. We've always felt it so important that our kids be completely confident and secure that Daddy can care for them just as well as Mommy, even if it looks different. And face it, it does look different with Daddies. Here, weekends with Daddy are tantamount to a weekend away with a Rock Star - he's the fun one ;)

I love the picture with the sunglasses. Soooo cute! I bet if we put my, Jenni, and your, Grace, together they would look so cute together! Jenni has a "fan club" wherever she goes. Her pictures just don't do her justice. I love how Grace looks so adorable in her pictures. She needs to teach Jenni how to pose! Take care
