Quality Time, Right Now

We all know how it is.  2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc, etc children are neglected.  They never get the 1 on 1 attention that the oldest child gets.  For better or for worse, it's just the way it is.

So I'm taking this opportunity as my eldest takes a rare nap to spend some quality time with #2.

Here we are.  5 minutes ago.

Ha!  Not such a happy camper, is she now?

I suppose I should stop making meatballs, sweeping the kitchen, taking self timed portraits, and blogging so that I can spend some real quality time with her.

Skip the meatballs and sweeping. I like the portraits and blogging!

She looks very thoughtful in this photo - I love her face. She's a doll. You came up at dinner last night with some gals - we are excited to see you in October and I told them about your awesome blog. :)

Well... the youngest child gets quality 1-1 time, you just have to wait until the others leave for college. Does it cause a delay in development? You tell me, haha.

i know Sophia is napping now too. Henry loves to chill alone with no one trying to poke his eyes or squeeze his face. Poor guy!! He is so close to crawling, I think only to get away from her.
