Well I didn't plan to be MIA for over a week - but somehow it happened.
But what a week it has been.
My girl from Boston came home for a whole week. We don't get to see her often so we soak in every single minute we can. It is always such a pure delight to have all four of our girls home at the same time. It's better than vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips on top on a hot summer day!
But I can probably explain my absence best in three words.

Yep, it's that week around here. But this year was the very best ever and this is why. I took on the complete and total responsibility of babysitting my little grandson every single night so his mama and daddy could be pirates at the Bible school. It's been amazing. Every night we snuggle and play. I give him a bath with the best smelling baby bath in the entire world.
If you haven't tried this - well, you just have to. It is amazing! And when you rub it on baby skin - well, it's like you just died and went to heaven. It's that good.
After his bath, I give him a bottle. It's so sweet. If he gets a little fussy we just go outside. He loves outside. He calms right down and looks all around. He smiles and coos. He is the perfect grandson. He is. And I am 100%, completely, totally in love with the little guy. My heart just melts into a puddle of mush whenever I lay eyes on him. My girl Tara said it best. She said, "He just makes my heart hurt mom."
We are all going around here with our hearts hurting. And it's never felt so good.
I promise to be back blogging next week with more regularity. And maybe even some pictures.
