without a hitch-Brian keeps the girls overnight

I went to my sister's this weekend in Ohio for some pre wedding (more on that later) while Brian kept the girls by himself for the first time.  I was so excited to go, but of course sad to leave my babies.  Harper is easy to keep and I knew she wouldn't miss a beat; Kate, on the other hand, is a mommy's girl so I didn't know how it would go.

Brian took the girls to the pool TWICE-with some friends, of course.  He's brave!

It went great!  I thought I'd be getting phone calls the whole time, but of course I overstressed and everyone did great.  Kate only woke up at 1 am to eat and then slept until 7.  She took all of her naps and bottles perfectly and I was so relieved.

This sounds cheesy, but I also think this was a wonderful time for father-daughter bonding.  Brian works hard and is a wonderful dad, but this was fatherhood on a whole new level.  I love to see him loving on his girls.

He sent me these pictures over the weekend.  Wonderful reassurance!
