What a weekend

Hi Everyone,
I know it has been a while since I have wrote anything. I have been very busy with my new grandson. He has been over almost every day which has been great. He is so adorable and I could just love him up. He is three weeks old today.

On Friday I got him for the day so some friends of mine and I could take him shopping. That was very fun but funny also. See we range in age from mid-forties to 30 and none of us have had a little one for at least six years so here we are climbing in and out of the van. First my friend Cari would forget to open the van side door to let me and Kassie out with baby then when she finally would open the door it was a challenge to remember how to move the seat up so we could get out then finally get that figured out and one would take the diaper bag one would take baby in his car seat and I would get the fun job of my purse.

It was a great day though and my friends gave me a bassinet to use at my house when baby was there. It is so cute it is blue with snoopy on it. I just love it and so does baby. He sleeps in it very well. He is such a good baby.

Then the next day was a baby shower for baby and Jennifer (Mommy) at my sisters house. I do not have a place big enough. So I load up my niece Tami Jo's car( I don't have a running vehicle right now but that is for another day) and we head to my sisters to decorate and get ready.

The shower whent great I think there was just the right amount of people and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. She got a lot of cute clothes and my other niece Cara made her a diaper cake. If you have never seen one of those they are adorable. I love them. I wish I was talented enough to do that.

Then after the shower when I got home my son and his wife brought baby over and I got to babysit him. I love baby sitting him he is just so cute. I took him with me to do some more shopping with a friend of mine and that was hilarious again because my friend has this little GeoMetro and try and get an infant car seat in the back seat of one of those. That is a chore. Then the seat was behind me and so my seat would not go all the way up so I had to sit at an angle with baby in the back. After we got home from our shopping trip my son and his wife brought over more water and diapers and I got to keep baby over night.

When they first asked me to do that I was thinking of course how hard can it be I have had four children and survived all of them so I was excited to do it. Now baby was great he only woke up twice all night and I changed him and fed him and he went right back to sleep. I on the other hand hardly slept at all. I was so afraid I would not hear him I heard everything he did. Then the next morning I woke up got him ready for church and took him with there. I think that was the first time in a long time that I could have fallen asleep if it would not have been such a good church service. It was youth Sunday and that is when all the youth take over the service. They do the singing and our youth pastor does the service. It was great.

Then after all of that on Sunday night I went to a concert "Big Daddy Weave" it was amazing but by the time I got home I was definitely ready for sleep.

So that was my busy weekend. I would do the babysitting all over again though if asked. I loved babysitting him he is just so wonderful.


  1. He is way too cute and cuddly of a baby! I enjoyed having a baby around, even if it was in the Metro! LOL

    I did not know about the concert at all. Not that I like music, but maybe the kids would have liked to go, and I know Donnie loves music.

  2. It sold out real fast the only reason I knew about it is because Tami Jo invited me about a month ago

  3. Hey Anna! Welcome to Bloggyworld! You are going to need to post some pictures of that cute little grandson of yours though...or put some on your sidebar maybe, like I have my three little guys.
