Father's Day

I've been back at work for two months now, and while I still miss Clara LIKE CRAZY, Scott's being home with her has brought me so much peace and relief. (For those of you who don't know, Clara was in daycare approximately one hour when I flipped out and we made the decision that Scott would stay home with her until she's about 15 months old.)
 So, Scott really deserved a special day for his first Father's Day. One of his gifts was to change zero diapers for the day. (I usually change most of the diapers on nights and weekends anyway, but thought this would be a nice gesture.) Me and the fur-babies also got him this Darth Vader "Who's Your Daddy?" shirt (from here) and a Fat Tire Beer gift box. (Yes, it's illegal to ship beer into Mississippi.... no comment on where I got this!)
Clara made him this photo collage. I cut the letters out of foam board with a utility knife. It took A LOT of photos to get 7 decent shots! I also made "Grandpa" photo collages in the same type of frames (from Michaels). Scott said this was his favorite present :-)
We went out for brunch -- Clara was perfect at brunch and seemed to enjoy the fresh air -- then pretty much lounged around the rest of the day.

Mango Coma
We've been ferberizing Clara (post on that soon) and thankfully, she fell asleep pretty quickly on Father's Day night.  This was followed by us passing out about 10:30 -- VERY early for us, and very nice.

Scott, thank you for taking such good care of my sweet girl. Love you both!
