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.

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 ;)|
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.
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!!|
|And by the time we left, Will could hold Adam! Success!!|
