Destined friends

Maggie loves little Henry.  Sometimes we battle to keep her away from him.  She can be gentle and dangerous in her playful adoration, ranging from tender kisses to piling things atop of him.  Sara is better at letting Maggie hold Henry, while I spend most my time telling her to stay away from him.

Henry likes to sleep in the morning and late afternoon, while Maggie likes to sleep at noon.  It is rare when I get them both to nap at the same time.  Despite the lack of free time, I noticed my motivation to send out resumes has dramatically increased. This is my excuse for the not blogging.  I definitely think Sara could juggle the world of two children better than me.  Sure there at great moments but I am looking forward to the day when I can pass the baton and admire Mother's who stay at home with their children from a distance:) 


  1. Still such cute kids!! :) Two small ones at home is definitely hard, hang in there Stanford!

  2. I love that she loves him so devotedly!! Definitely better than resenting him (although... that might chance once he's more mobile and taking her toys...)

    I hope you get to enjoy stay at home moms from a distance soon too!! (Have you applied places in SLC??? WE WOULD LOVE TO LIVE CLOSE TO YOU!)

  3. This post made me laugh. I honestly think that your experiences as a stay at home dad will be invaluable when the roles reverse and you can actually empathize with Sara's experiences staying home with 2 (or more!) kiddos. Sometimes I wish Ian knew what my days are like. Anyway, you have adorable kids. These b&w's are just gorgeous!

  4. Stanford you truthfully capture such amazing pictures. I adore them.

    Oh, going to two (and honestly 3 was even harder for me...) it is so much more work. You are awesome. I hope you are able to find something soon too. But, know you are a good good Dad. We sure love you guys. We need another adventure together! I am really missing all of you.
