"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017"
Cruz: You had your first sleepover on Saturday night for one of your sweet Kindergarten buddy's birthday. This was a big deal, for all of us! Our house felt empty without you here! We weren't quite sure you were going to make it all night when Landon's mom texted and said "your tummy hurt," but by the time Daddy pulled into their driveway around 9:30, you were in tears and kept saying "I want to stay for my FIRST sleepover!" And you were asleep five minutes later! You are getting so big and I do cherish these sweet little friendships you are building.
Mila: Daddy and I were going to take you for a special "date night" Saturday night, but you refused to nap that afternoon and were not a fun date that night. We had plans to take you to Target to pick out a new movie for a sleeping bag movie night at home, but you did not earn it! We decided an early bedtime was a better idea for you, sweet pea. ;)
