Wow. It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these posts! We had a busy week last week. We started off in Raleigh on Sunday for Scary Uncle Adam’s wedding! It was a wonderful weekend full of friends and family and exploring a new city. And also welcoming a new sister (Aunt Kristin) to our crazy family. Bug was the cutest ring bearer I’ve ever seen, of course. Funny side story: during the ceremony, the pastor (Kristin’s father) said something that made the congregation chuckle. Bug bursts out with the loudest, fakest laugh I’ve ever heard, which, obviously, makes the entire congregation crack up. Love this kid.
We split up the drive to Raleigh over two days, but we drove back in one fell swoop on Monday. 13 hours with all of the required stops for a toddler to stretch his legs and for a preggo to pee. Bug was SO GOOD in the car. He never once complained or asked to get out and he never once fussed about having to get back in the car after stopping for a break. We were so proud of him. He fell asleep at about 9:30… an hour-ish before we got home… holding his foot.
Somebody (not me!) taught Bug how to roll Play-Doh into snakes! He is very proud of this skill and we spent a good twenty minutes rolling numerous Play-Doh snakes that afternoon.
Nine times out of ten, if you ask Bug what he wants to do today, he’ll say ,”Go to the libary.” (Hard word for a little guy.) We really only have one free day a week to do whatever he wants (Thursdays, if you’re interested), so about every other Thursday we go to the library together. We return our books from the previous trips, find some new books and look through them before checking them out and then usually going out to lunch. Ten times out of ten, the books he chooses contain superheroes and/or Ninja Turtles. Someone might be obsessed.
On Saturday, I had the pleasure of catering a wedding for a dear friend of Aunt Annie’s. Let me start by saying that Hubby & I adore the family we catered for. Hubby is close friends with the Jenny’s (the bride) oldest brother, who is one of the nicest guys I know. Jenny’s mom is a nurse and was a lactation consultant at our county hospital when Bug was born… she was sweet enough to bring us dinner one night after Bug was born and was so open to any questions I had about breastfeeding. I texted her often those first couple of weeks! This was our prep area in the kitchen… catering for 175 people is tough, and we had a couple little hiccups, but we had so much fun! It is always such a treat when I get to cater for people that I know and love. That being said, Hubby and I are still recovering from working until 3am that night!!
