Thursday night we bopped to JoJo's house...
After braving the snow storms, sleet, hail, rain, and an overnight stay in loverly Elko, NV, we finally got there. Friday we relaxed, played with cousins, and saw the cutest, most awkward young moose you ever saw.
Saturday Mac and I went to the temple and left Luke for his longest stretch ever (a whopping 3 hours). At first he was inconsolable, and the one to get him to relax was Babo. I guess sometimes having a calming male presence helps. Oh, and Babo reminding Luke of his Dad probably helped a lot, too.
Saturday also included a shopping trip. I would have left Luke behind with his Dad to play in the lovely weather and the vintage park equipment at JoJo's, but he wanted to come. It was a really hard choice for him because he so wanted to stay and play, but it was just a little too much for me to leave him again.
We found some really fun hats at Michael's:
One of the main reasons we came was to see our new niece and nephew (Claire and Calvin), born two days apart to two sisters (Jayne and Tess). It's really funny to be around newborns again. Luke is really quite taken with Claire. If she cries he needs to check on her, he wants to hold her for a little bit, and he tries to feed her his food. All the brainwashing I've been doing by giving him dolls to play with and having him watch A Baby Story are paying off. I think he'll be ready for a sibling by the time one shows up.
Oh, and we forgot the basketball. He missed it in the car when he was sleepy. I got him a new one at Target and this morning he tried to share his breakfast with it. So not only has my child chosen a basketball to be attached to, but he's trying to nurture it.
We also forgot my phone charger, so call Mac if you need me and my phone goes straight to voicemail!
