Fun Times with Grandma and more

This past Friday, Charlie and I were awake at 8:00 for a feeding when my phone rang and it was Travis’s mom. She was just “letting me know” that she was off work for half a day waiting for a piece of furniture to be delivered. I quickly deduced that was code for “if you will, can I please hang out with Charlie”. It turned out to be a fun couple hours. We loaded right up and went over as soon as the feeding was over. Charlie and his grandma (no idea if this is what she will end up being called, but I just picked a name for now) had a blast playing with each other and I had a wonderful chance to get online and do a few things (namely start the search for a nanny). Here’s some cute pics below of the two of them. It was also the first time Colleen has really seen him where he’s been so sociable. Usually Travis’ parents come see him in the evening or keep him for us in the evening, when he’s a little cranky, tired, and sleepy. I was glad she finally had the opportunity to see the happy version of Charlie in person instead of just in pictures.

On Friday night we also went over to our friends, Jason & Kristen’s house to celebrate Jason’s graduation from nurse anesthesist school. They even invited Charlie, who was so good and sociable to let everybody play with and talk to him.

On Saturday, I had to go in to work for about 6 hours and Travis stayed with Charlie. When I called to check on them, Travis was feeding him but he said he had a problem. I of course got concerned and wanted to know what it was – he asked how do I feed Charlie when he won’t stop smiling and laughing. What a wonderful problem! I of course advised him to just enjoy the smiles at the moment instead of trying to get him to stop.

On Sunday, CHarlie and I made our first trip to church since he was in the womb. He was asleep at first, but then got a little fidgety. Travis ended up having to walk around and stand with him at the back of the room during the sermon, but at least he didn’t cry and interrupt the sermon. I just am not ready to put him back in the nursery just yet. I need a little more time to get used to the idea.

Okay, enough for now. My next post will hopefully be pictures of the house decorated for Christmas. Travis and I worked hard on Sunday afternoon while CHarlie napped and it looks pretty festive now. Hope you are all well and enjoying the Christmas season.
