>Back from a great weekend

>Well, our family is exhausted from this past weekend. There was so much to do and not enough time! Ethan also got to come stay with us for the first time since school started so we were very excited!

Friday night we had the grandkids (Ethan, Kellen, and Logan) take their Grandma MJ out to eat for grandparents day. I would have a picture from the occasion, but I forgot the camera, plus my little one was not that happy to be eating out. Needless to say, he officially embarrassed us in a restaurant for the first time. But it was fun to be out with this group of Keith’s family. We don’t get to do it near enough.

Saturday I was throwing a baby shower so Kellen went to stay with his Nana and Pa (my parents). He was a little angel, so they say, except for his naptimes and bedtime. Yes, my son has begun fighting sleep! It is the most stressful thing for all of us! There is nothing you can do to make him feel better! Hopefully this is a stage we will soon grow out of. The baby shower was a success and it was good to hang around with old friends. Check out the cake…it is so adorable!

Sunday I went down to church for Grandparents Day and to pick up my baby! Megan brought my nephew Lawson also, some mom was on cloud nine. We went back to my parents for a while, then it was time to get the little guy home.

Sorry this is so short….I’ll try and post more later.

>Too much to do

>Well, it’s back to work after a long weekend. Blah! Kellen had a pretty eventful weekend though. We are still getting used to the cereal and he’s actually starting to enjoy it. He opens his mouth when he sees the spoon coming in and takes the food right in. The only problem is he has learned to do the “motor boat” sound, so the majority of the food ends up on his chest and on me. Oh well, I love this and he does too!

Saturday we went down for Ethan’s football jamboree and Kellen loved it! He’s such an outdoors baby and I have no idea where he gets that from! It got a little hot though so we had to leave a little early. I was just hoping he didn’t get a sunburn, but we at least got to wear a hat someone bought us! He’s excited though for the next game he’ll get to attend!

Sunday he went to the mall and he just adores being there. He loves to look at all the sights, sounds, and the bright lights! Plus he likes to check out the other little babies strolling along. We went to Red Lobster and he slept right through dinner like a pro. This may not seem like a big deal to some, but this was just his second time in a restaurant so it’s still a little scary…mainly for his mom! His cousin Logan got to come up and play with him and that always puts him in a good mood. Those two are going to be trouble together I can already tell.

Monday we went shopping for a Halloween costumes and I’m so indecisive. Kellen isn’t as worried as I am about this, but it’s his first Halloween! He has to be adorable his costume, but still comfortable, which is a lot easier said than done.

Oh, and mommy got a haircut this weekend! It was mainly for Kellen because I loved, loved, loved, my long hair, but he has started pulling on it and getting it wrapped around his little fingers. I hope he knows the sacrifice I made!! hehe

I promise I’m going to get better at this blogging. Working full-time and being a new mommy takes it’s toll on you. When I get a free moment, I just want to sit down and relax! But I’m going to try harder!

And a big GO HOGS GO on their win this past Saturday! Can’t wait for the rest of the season!
