Tonight our family is wrapping up the last day of Conor's paternity leave. He told me that the last two weeks have been the best of his life (how sweet is that?!), and I couldn't agree more! Being able to have him home with us as we adjust to life with the newest member has been incredible. Not only has our love grown even stronger, but he has bonded with Liam more than ever before!
While I spent the first week resting & baby snuggling, Conor had the opportunity to do all the fun things that Liam & I typically fill our weeks with! There was a trip to the zoo (complete with far more treats than Mom ever gets). A morning at the truck park (with another father & son...a man-date if you will). A swimming adventure (again too many treats afterward). A crazy day at Liam's favorite "jump around place" (where Conor played just as hard as Liam... I tend to sit back, relax, & simply watch). Puddle jumping on the rainy days & sandbox digging on the sunny ones! Those two were busy, busy, busy! And that doesn't even include all the adventures we took as a family during the second week!
I, myself, was pretty spoiled too! I woke up to a gourmet breakfast almost every day! Lemon poppyseed pancakes. Eggs benedict. Crepes. Eggs & bacon croissant sandwiches. Omelets. I don't know how I will adjust back to a morning of some simple granola & yogurt. He nailed breakfast and took care of all the rest of our meals too; clean up included! And just when I thought he couldn't get any more amazing, he even would manage to bathe both the boys while I relaxed in the tub with some candles & wine!
This post turned into a little bit of a brag session, but Conor honestly deserves it! He works so hard to provide for our family and allow us to live the lifestyle that we want. He's also one of thee most hands on dads that I know! I'm so proud to call him mine! The boys (love saying that!) & I are so sad about sending him back to work tomorrow, but luckily we have a huge summer vacation not too far off! I can't wait for that big getaway!
