Often times I miss them, only noticing when they are slipping away and the noise of the day again fills the room. Lucky for me, I like noise. Though I also like taking baths by myself (and by myself I mean without a baby in the bathroom at all...something relaxing is lost if you have to sing the ABCs again and again while bathing!)
PS Isn't that an amazingly big sand dollar? I found it years ago when on vacation with Ben, along with the starfish and other seashells.
