This past weekend, we were able to visit Jeremy’s hometown…Chattanooga.
It was officially Will’s first roadtrip. And we figured out that Will does not love being in his carseat. And he is not one of those magical babies that falls asleep in a car.
That’s ok…we’ll keep him anyhow.
It was really really fun to get out of the house. It was even more fun because we got to see some folks and introduce them to our newest little guy. Here’s Ben & Liz. We are trying to peer pressure them into having a baby too. We used phrases like “oh he never cries.” and “the poop smells like buttered popcorn” and “they practically take care of themselves”. We’ll see, I guess.
We also got to meet up with our friends Dan & Heidi. I have a girl crush on Heidi. She’s so fun. And pretty.
Apparently Will thought so too.
And we also got to see some of our future best buddies that we have arranged for Will to befriend.
This little guy is Hayden. Remember him? He was born right around the same time that Will was a little twinkle in my uterus.
Oh and we also met up with Asher. Asher is Jeremy’s cousin’s son.
So I guess that would make him Will’s second cousin. Or second cousin once removed. Or first cousin twice removed. I never remembered how that works. Let’s just say they are related.
And that he is a cutie patootie. Man, I could gobble him up like bacon.
Between all the new friends, the cookouts, and the naptimes, we also met up with Jeremy’s mom & grandma. They are still deciding their names. You know…their grandparent names. Right now they are considering GranB and GG. Will already has a Nana, a Mummum, and a Grammy…so it’s kinda tough to come up with something a little different. What do you call your grandma?
Oh and did I mention that while I was there, I totally left Will with Jeremy and got to attend an adult only event? Yeah. My boobs didn’t leak once because of a crying baby. And I got to sit down. It was pretty amazing. It was a baby shower for my friend Jill…she’s having a girl if you were wondering. Yeah, I know. Pink zebra is hot for boys right now too.
By the end of it, I was really missing my boys. I couldn’t wait to get back to them. It made me realize that I am oh-so-content with my life. I don’t want a big house or a fancy car or a million dollars in the bank. I love having simple pleasures. Like a little boy who sleeps 8 hours at night. And a husband who still tries to cop a feel when I wear shorts. And pictures of kittens.
So that’s our weekend. What did you do? Anybody lovin simple pleasures lately? What are they? And for goodness sake, tell me that those baby cats are the cutest thing you have seen since Will Bower!
