Outdoor Medicine

After a heavy afternoon of partying with her baby cousin on his first birthday, Brees woke
up on Sunday morning with a stuffy nose and the desire to do nothing but nap and
cuddle with her taggie.  We hung out at home all day, rocking and holding our baby
girl between her long naps.  By late afternoon, Shawn, Isabelle, and I were ready for
some fresh air and sunshine.  While Brees slept her cough and sniffles away, the three of
us brought the baby monitor outside and sat on the back patio for a while.  While Shawn
and I soaked up the sunshine and quiet afternoon air, Isabelle soaked up her Mama
and Daddy's attention, loving every minute of her alone time with us.  She told us long
stories about school, her plans for a big birthday slumber party, and her Valentine's
Day wishlist.  Shawn enjoyed a beer and I had ice cream.  It was a short break from the
busy family life but we all went back inside feeling rejuvenated.  And I'm pretty sure
Belle didn't stop smiling for at least an hour.
