Another Monday

I am proud to say I am a dad.  Sometimes I feel like a fish out of water, though, because I have yet to see the instruction manual!

Chloe is amazing, but sometimes I just want to know what's making her tick.  Could it be that that is where our missing alarm clock went?

Chloe wasn't feeling well last night.  So she was up and fussing every hour or so, sometimes more.  Well, at about three I was unable to shut my brain back off and get a few more minutes of sleep.  I tried and tossed and turned until a little before four, when I decided enough was enough, and I might as well stay awake and check her so Cora could sleep.  This summer I am taking Mondays off and working four tens, so Cora needs the sleep more than me, since I may just take a nap when Chloe does.  I am also going to make a Dr. appointment just so we can see what's been motivating our little girl to not feel well.  I'll keep you posted.

Cora and Chloe humored me and did what I wanted to do yesterday, which was go for a drive into the mountains, find some wild flowers and take pictures of the girl there...We took about 30 changes of clothes, but two was all we got through.  We also took a picnic lunch and did a little walking.  It was a beautiful, if windy, day.  I think we all enjoyed it and it was good to get away from the house for awhile.

 I was somewhat disappointed with how the wind kept Chloe from hearing me when I attempted to get her to look at the camera.  Several good photos were made mediocre because she wasn't looking at the camera.  And Cora was kept busy keeping Chloe on her feet on the uneven ground.  Oh, well, on the up side, I have ample opportunities to take photos of this model, since she lives with us!

Winds, age, the surrounding distractions...she's still adorable! Happy Father's Day!

Looks like you had a great Fathers Day. Love the pictures you take I wish mine looked that good, oh, maybe it the subject you have that makes them so good.

Happy Belated Father's Day! You're following your own manual. That's a good one to follow!

I agree with the "trust your own manual": you're doing great, the two (three) of you! Hope the doctor can help you solve the health issue (if there is one), our children will always get sick in the weekend and by the time I finally see a doctor they're all well again, for a day or two... The pictures are great, love the surroundings and if only my pictures were half as nice as yours I'd be so happy!
