It was a good weekend!

My weekend with Malaia went as well as it possibly could have. She slept through the night on Friday, which was a complete shock to me. Then on Saturday morning, my buddy and his 17 month old son, came out at 8:15 in the morning and we took the kids out for a walk in Malaia's brand new two seater wagon. We took them down to the lake where they had fun trying to throw rocks into the water. Then we took them to the park where they had a blast on the swings and slides and just running through the fields chasing a soccer ball.

It was supposed to be just a a few hour play date, but after the 1 1/2 hour adventure out side in the morning, and a good nap they were ready to go again. We ended up in the backyard for about a 45 minute run around. And when it was decided that they were going to stay for dinner, my buddies wife joined us at about 3pm and we were off again in the wagon for another long walk. Malaia had a ton of fun. Although she did have her moments where she did not want Christopher touching her toys and verbally displayed her displeasure.

Saturday night was not quite as good as Friday night. I was kind of hoping that with all that fresh air through the day that she would sleep through the night again. But it was not to be. She was up twice back to back in a 3 hour span.

Ang had a good time where she was. She was hoping for 2 good night sleeps. But she's never been good at sleeping in new places, and she's also at the point in her pregnancy where she just can't get comfortable. She did however enjoy the couple of days away from all things toddler and said she felt refreshed.

So all in all it was good weekend had by all, and that should be the last for quite some time. We are now at 36 weeks and one day into the pregnancy and Ang has 2 more days of work left. We' re ready for baby#2 so come on out kid we're ready for ya!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend. It is awesome that you and Malaia have started a foundation for your relationship. Some Mom's cannot go anywhere without feeling like the child will not survive without them and that Dad cannot handle it.
