Right when Justin came through the door (not a moment too soon! I had spent the last few days preparing the house spotless, made sure to do my hair pretty and nails....let's face it he won't notice, but I will) he picked Eli up (who had been crying and disputing nap time) and instantly the crying stopped.
It's hard not to get antsy that he is home and want to catch up and go and do things, but he had been working really long hours and just wanted to sleep. He slept for five hours and it sounded like he was cutting down trees in his sleep. Eli made up his mind that no naps would take place today even though I tried everything including a long 45 minute drive in the car. Today was a perfect camera day since there were lots of thunder clouds in the sky, so I took advantage of the beautiful sky line and hoped that he would fall asleep...no luck.

One good thing about no naps and Justin being home is that there is no agenda. I didn't care if Eli fell asleep at 6 or 9 or what we ate for dinner...just spending time and catching up as a family was the only thing of importance. Absence really does make the heart grow fonder!
