My Weekend with Adam

This past weekend, Will and I had the pleasure of babysitting our nephew, Adam, while my brother and sister-in-law had a weekend away!!  It was a blast!!


He is 9 1/2 months old and absolutely amazing!  We arrived Thursday and he was all smiles for his Aunt Dana :)  Unfortunately for Uncle Will, Adam was a bit skeptical...lol.  I found it rather amusing. Can't blame the little guy - he hadn't seen his Uncle since Christmas!

On Friday at dinner time, Michael and Amanda headed off and we were all alone on baby duty!  We had a fun evening in and I got to rock Adam to sleep.  Such a sweet time.  He was a good boy and went to bed around 8, woke up at 12:30am for a diaper change and bottle, then slept til 7:20ish in the morning.
Checking out Uncle Will 
Saturday was a fun day for the 3 of us.  We decided to leave the comfort of the house and risk going in public with an infant that isn't ours! What?!?!  We went to the mall!  Put that little guy in his stroller and did some shopping and grabbed some lunch in the food court.  He sat like a good boy and enjoyed people watching with us.  Not to mention, everyone commented on how cute he is ;)

Thought this outfit might help him warm up to Uncle Will ;)

Mall Time!
We cooked dinner in and hung out on Sunday until Michael and Amanda got home for a late lunch.  I can't leave out the diaper near-explosion that occurred Sunday morning!  Adam definitely broke us in - well, just me.  Will was too busy gagging to be any help on clean up.  Sadly, Will and I headed to the airport Sunday night for a late flight home :(  It was a fast weekend, but one I will cherish forever.  And hopefully, the first of many!

There is something about Adam's age that I just love.  He wants to explore and wants to play...and he thinks I'm absolutely hilarious.  Not sure why, but I get lots of giggles and smiles.  I think he thinks I'm crazy ;) He wants his independence, but is also still a baby.   He loves being held and cuddled when he goes to sleep.  There is nothing quite like rocking a baby to sleep - such innocence.

Out cold....
Snuggling

If I wasn't already wrapped around his little finger, I'm toast!  He just needs to give me one of those smiles and the world is his.

Getting ready to start walking soon!
Will got a smile :)
Gotta love a baby in just a diaper!  Cuteness!!
Play Time!
And by the time we left, Will could hold Adam!  Success!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
