sunday: after our overnight anniversary celebration, we had a leisurely morning, eventually ending up at a restaurant for some yummy breakfast.031

also sunday: layla had been working on this incredibly loose molar all day and determined that she was not going to go to sleep until she got it out. FINALLY.033

monday: and this is where I found micah in the morning. his bedding was still in the dryer when he went to bed, and he was going to sleep in a sleeping bag. apparently the sleeping bag slipped off the mattress, so this is where he ended up.
