Ella had a sleep over at her Grandma and Papa's house last weekend. The next morning, they took her to church and then there was a picnic after where they had face painting, games and food. Ella didn't come home until about 1pm! That was a great morning. :) I got to sleep in and Keith and I got a lot of things done....Not to mention we had a lot of peace and quiet. But by about 11am, I really started to miss her. When that happens, I start to get ancy, don't know what to do with myself and feel like I am missing my third arm. So for 2 hours or so, I would look out the window every 15 minutes to see if she was home yet. Its amazing how having a child throws off your whole being. Since I am a stay at home Mom and am with her every second of my life, I should have been reveling the time she was away knowing that she would be home shortly safe and sound. Gosh, I love her.
Anyways, when she got home she was so wired...and so tired! She had so much fun she was jumping around like a kitty on catnip. And when I saw her face, I bolted for my camera. I couldn't choose between these two shots for BSM because I liked both of them equally. They aren't the greatest shots technically, but to me, they show both sides of how she was feeling at the time. The first one shows her playfulness and the serious face in second one, for that slight moment, showed how the energy was draining right out of her.
One quick tubby to clean up and down for a nap she went. Even though I didn't get to play with her right away because it was nap time, I was finally back to myself, knowing that she was resting comfortably in her bed.
For other BSM's head on over to Tracey's.
