The baby and I made a trip down to Oklahoma last weekend! I mean, wherever I go the baby goes, but I would like to think that the baby loved it's trip! We had such a great time, it was hard to leave. My two-year-old nephew has recently broken his femur (thigh bone) and is in a half-body cast and my sister also has a three week old baby! Talk about having your hands full!! So I wanted to go down to help out in whatever way I could. I got to spend most of my time with Arden, the nephew that broke his leg. I have always felt a special bond with Arden since I got to watch him be born into this world. We bonded even more this trip! He is SOOO Sweet!
This is pretty much what we did all weekend, lay around. At least I tried my hardest to get him to lay down, but what 2 year old doesn't want to walk and run! He can't do those things so it got a little frustrating for him, poor guy!
It was also his birthday while I was there so I got to give him a present from Brandon and I! Cat told me what to get him and let me give him the present that she knew would be the favorite! He loves his new Woody toy.
Also, I got to test my skills at being a mom to a newborn! I will say that at first I felt so terrible and was nervous to become a mom and have all the responsibility myself. But as the weekend went on, I got the hang of it a little more and a feel a lot more prepared. Catherine says that it is easier when it is your own child, which I am sure is true, but secretly I do wish that she or my other sister Lea could be there for the beginning so that they can take over if needed. Baby Nile is so precious and so sweet too. The pictures are a little blurry so sorry!!
