"How sweet it is to be loved by you..."

Oh, for the first time, I feel sorry for people who don't live in New Jersey- it is SUCH a lovely night!

Today was one of those days that just kind of melts into the others- we didn't go anywhere or do anything special. In fact, I am still in the tee shirt I slept in last night! Which is kind of slovenly but a fact nonetheless! At any rate, one good thing about life is that even during the times that seem very vanilla and plain, there can be sweet moments!

Like PJ and Mama snuggling together for a nap, and noticing for the first time how big he is!! I mean, I always realize how huge he is when I am lugging him around :-). But today, snuggled up to me, he just seemed like such a big boy! His sleep sounds are so cute-

The best is when he chuckles in his sleep! It's like winning the lottery!

We got a package from an aunt and uncle of Pete's with a sweet gift for PJ and the nicest note! It was just so loving and heartfelt that it warmed me to my soul! PJ was already in bed by the time I got to the mailbox, so I can't wait to give him his new, soft blanket tomorrow!

Making some weekend plans with a friend is wonderful! Especially when there is coffee involved!

Even more fun, I heard from my girls today! Ellie and I share the same birthday, and we missed each other on the actual day, so she called today to wish me a happy birthday, let me know she got my message, and excitedly tell me that a girl in her class broke her arm! Anna chatted about school and asked for PJ! I will get to see the girls on Saturday at Ellie's birthday party! I can't believe she's 8- the girls were two and three when I started watching them!

And now, after a quiet night in which I did not even turn the TV on, it's time for bed! Soon, Pete will come home from work to climb in next to me, and my little family will all be under one roof- the sweetest thing of all!
