Dear Hunting Season...

I think it is time to end for a while; the ducks want a break & I'm ready for my husband back! You can have him for the early mornings in the fall, but we are ready for him to be back with us full time (when he isn't at work) until then. 

Thank you for your understanding,
One Tired Mama

We enjoyed a fun but short weekend, and we squeezed in as much family time as possible. Daddy (Brian) went on one last hunting trip to Arkansas over the weekend with his hunting buddies. Since daddy was out of town and being at home  in isolation with two babies can get lonely, we packed up and headed to Gran & Poppy's. Kennedy is starting to have some really fun conversations with Daddy on FaceTime when he is out of town. They are absolutely precious to watch, and I am thankful that we have this technology available. 

We were able to enjoy some of the beautiful weather outside on Monday before the cold front hit today. Drake is overly sensitive to the bright sunlight, but he seemed happy to be outside in the shade. Cousin Jacob seemed to be in his element in the outdoors. Daddy has high hopes of Kennedy duck hunting with him in the future. From what I have seen, she has a long way to go in terms of acclimating to the great outdoors if she is going to join her daddy. At least we have a few years before she will be ready for any adventures of that nature. 

We all enjoy watching Kennedy and Jacob interacting. Even though they don't always get along, they are still fun to watch. The most incredible thing is their sweet and caring nature when it comes to Drake. They are both very aware of him and where he is in the house. Watching each of them check on him, rock him, and bring him toys is heart warming. 

I learned about a Facebook group called I Run for Michael. It is a group that matches runners with those with special needs. Their page states, "God gave me the gift of mobility. Others aren't as fortunate so I Run for Michael, who do YOU run for?" Drake was matched with his runner today! She is a college student and we look forward to getting to know her as she dedicates her runs to Drake. 

Time for a change...I have decided to write blog updates once each week instead of twice; therefore, I will be updating weekly on Tuesday evenings. But don't worry...If we have any exciting pictures or videos between blogs, I will post those on their Facebook page. 

Snuggling with Daddy!

Absolutely precious!!!

Napping on mommy & daddy's bed.

She thinks she is ready for video games :)

FaceTime with Daddy!

At little play time outside.

Sweet Cousin Jacob!

She stood like a statue on the porch. 

And then she stood like a statue in the yard.

Then she finally warmed up to her new environment! 

All worn out after his long day!
