Well it's been a fun weekend in NY, I ran out of clothes to wear because I only packed warm stuff thinking it would be cold, but it was warm all weekend. I may have to go buy a t-shirt to wear home, it's in the high 70's and all I have left to wear is a hoodie sweatshirt. I can't believe how nice it is out here, the leaves are all turning colors right now as if it's fall, but it feels like summer.
Tony was a good baby the whole time, except when we went to church twice in one day (Bob had to preach at 2 different churches) and he missed his nap, apparently he isn't one of those babies to just sleep on the go. He needs his naps in his bed. That made for a long day. Also he has been sleeping with me this trip when the pack and play just wont suffice. I don't know how people let their kids sleep with them all the time. He flops and flips all over in the bed and I can't hardly sleep. At one point Kristen, who also slept with me, woke me up to tell me that Tony was kicking her in the head. I can't wait till we get back home and he can sleep in his own bed.
We have had lots of good homemade food, I think I gained a few pounds this weekend. My mom keeps saying how cute my belly is and I get annoyed because it isn't baby it's food. I haven't been hungry once, because before I get a chance to get hungry we eat again. She is currently making me 8 loaves of bread (not for me) and some cookies (not all for me) to take home.
We have played bananagrams about a hundred times. It's a very fun game, kind of like scrabble but much faster and funner (is that a word?). I had beginners luck and won the first 5 games I played, after that it wasn't so easy, but still really fun. Now I'm hooked so I will have to be on the lookout for the game.
Today we will leave for the 10 hour drive home and will go halfway tonight, stay in a hotel and then finish tomorrow morning. I know it seems silly to not just do it in one day, but there is no way I can drive 10 hours by myself, and even if I could, I doubt Tony would tolerate being in his car seat for that long. I prebooked a hotel room this time, but I am still not sure about it. It's a comfort inn and suites and 3 stars so should be safe right? I'm still worried, the area I want to stop doesn't offer many hotel options and the reviews were mixed. I'll let you know how it all turns out.
When I get back home tomorrow I will post some cute pictures from this weekend.
The bread just came out of the oven, hot and steamy and smelling so good, so I am signing off to try a piece with some homemade grape jelly.
