Weekend in Review

I really think that my weekend in review posts may become a permanent fixture of my blog. Not so much because I want all of you to know everything we do, but it's a way to document some of the fun things we're doing with Brayden these days.

We started out the weekend on Thursday afternoon with a sour note for little B man-- 2 month shots :( He actually did really well while we were at the doctor's office, and I think due to complete exhaustion fell asleep not too long after the shots. That afternoon and evening, however, were less than enjoyable by everyone in the family. Little B was NOT happy, and let us know about it. He really wasn't that hungry either (which is very much NOT like him!), so I just held him and let him fuss on me. By the next morning he was back to our normal smiley magoo man! Brayden also measured in quite nicely at 13 pounds and 24.25 inches long (75th and 90th percentile respectively). The doctor made the comment that breast feeding was going quite nicely... yes, yes it is! Now if only we could get rid of this stupid "45 minute intruder" I might be able to say that we have the perfect baby :)

Friday & Saturday we had Drew's dad come up for a 2 day visit to see Brayden and for him and Drew to celebrate Father's Day (they took a few hours to go fishing). Saturday we went out to Pea Ridge battle field. Drew's dad is an avid civil war buff, so this was right up his alley. They were celebrating heritage days, leading up to the 150th anniversary in 2012. They had all kinds of skillsman (is that a word?) and women weaving and sewing (one lady was making lace by hand which was quite interesting).

Sunday was B man's first visit to the church nursery and he did GREAT (ofcourse he did great!?!?! Did you have any doubt?!). Drew and I were so happy to be able to go to a church service without lugging the huge infant carrier and then worrying during all of the silent parts that our child would be "that one" that screams. LOL. He hasn't come down with a cold yet, which was my biggest fear. During my pregnancy we helped out in the infants classrooms, and Drew and I were amazed by the amount of parents that would drop their children off for childcare with what was CLEARLY NOT allergies. It's unbelieveable. And while I really would like for my little man to not become ill, I can't shield him from everything in the world, including germs, so to the church nursery he goes.

I finished up the weekend with another photoshoot. Some of you already know this, but for those of you who don't, I've started taking photography sessions for friends & family. It's not bringing in anything significant, but it gives me a hobby, and brings in a little bit of "blow money." Ofcourse, I save most all of my blow money anyway; my goal is to convince Drew to go halvsies with me on a big screen TV and new entertainment center. So far I've been working on him for over 4 years with no luck, so I could be saving for quite a bit longer.

And that, my friends, was our weekend.
