I love Saturdays, especially when Gatlyn sleeps until 9:30 in the morning. We had a hearty breakfast of eggs and sausage patties and then Gatlyn took a shower with John. Shortly after he wound up with a fo-hawk and wasn't too happy about it! We had to run to the bank and on the way back stopped for doughnuts, which is definitely not on my diet plan. I had a delicious vanilla long-john which I've always thought was a weird name for a doughnut (Freudian?). My husband chose a traditional glazed doughnut as they were out of glazed croissants. We're home now and Gatlyn is down for his afternoon nap, peace and quiet for the next few hours.
I absolutely adore that Gatlyn is pleased to romp around the house for hours playing. Most mothers, I imagine, find a scattered mess of toys obnoxious; however, I genuinely enjoy it. It reminds me of the innocence and playfulness of my son. Let's face it, the presence of a little one always warms an atmosphere. The tiny lamb below is a toy that Gatlyn picked out, himself, while we were running some errands last week. It is SO adorable and has found its place amongst all of his other toys.
