What Happened This Weekend…

May 14, 2012

We had wonderful friends come to visit us from St. Louis:

…including the little baby that I used to nanny for:

april 09 290 

…who is now ALL grown up:


Jodi was excited to hold the baby:


Will was not quite as thrilled:


Enjoy being an only child while it lasts, kiddo!

Ryan fulfilled a lifelong dream of eating a restaurant-prepared Bacon Burger Dog (which he has actually discussed on the blog before, because you really can’t discuss a Bacon Burger Dog too many times):


He said it was everything he’d dreamed it would be.

This conversation happened, via text message, conveniently about ten minutes after Ryan left the house to “run errands”:


…and someone, subsequently, got a bath:


On Sunday, after Jodi and Nathaniel and Will headed back to St. Louis, we celebrated my very first Mother’s Day:


…bouncing on the ball.  Where else?  🙂

Hope you had a GREAT weekend—thanks so much for all of the comments and e-mails regarding my last post. 

Happy Monday!

    Your baby is so cute! I love that last picture of the two of you…and the one of Will and the baby. I had a good laugh from it.

    You bounce on a ball too!?? I’m glad I’m not the only one. Only thing that will settle my daughter down! She loves it!

      Oh, we spend about 75% of our time on the ball now. Not even kidding 🙂

        Same! Only way I can get her to go to sleep! I’ll never forget the look of the babysitter.. “you want me to do what now…?”

    What a fabulous weekend. Ohhhh the massive poops. Good times. Kaylin is on a medication right now that makes her poop brick red colored…fun!

    I thought about you this weekend! I hope you had a great Mother’s Day! I also thought about you today as I dealt with some craptastic 11 year old attitude! The good times keep on coming!

      Hahaha…I was walking by the high school by our house yesterday, and witnessing some prime teenage behavior. And I thought, “MAN I hope Lila doesn’t ever grow up…” Guess it doesn’t work that way, huh? 🙂
