Hello Cool Aunt Joy!!!

I figured I'd better post because my sister is dying to see pictures of her Cool nephew. It has been a crazy last week with me starting work on Monday. So we'll backtrack to last week....

Last Friday the 3 of us (boy that seems strange to write!) drove over by Sabetha to the Sack & Fox Casino for dinner with Hoshi and his parents. We hadn't seen him in almost a year so it was nice to catch up with him. He brought his girlfriend down from Minnesota so we go to meet her and tell her horror stories about him.... Okay so we weren't that mean!

Saturday was pretty boring and we really didn't do much of anything. Sunday we met Mom & Dad & Bill (or as I like to call him, Billiam) for dinner. It's been a LONG time since we saw him so it was fun. He texted Joyous while we were at dinner. We tried to get a rise out of her by saying I was telling all sorts of stories but she knew better. Damn! We also got him to hold Cael (a.k.a. Bob) while we looked like crazy people in the middle of a restaurant taking pictures. I'm sure that made Billiam feel REAL comfortable! Nothing like sitting in a semi crowded place having your picture taken by 2 different people at one time. And no we couldn't take just 1 we had to take 3 or 4. We of course had to get one of him, Bob & alcohol which is now our tradition with Bob's Cool Aunt Joy. In case you haven't figured it out yet, our son has MANY names: Cael, CaelRyan, fussy nuts, Bob, Soup, Mister, Stinker, and the list goes on.

Monday was the rough day for me. The first time of leaving my baby for the WHOLE DAY. Yes he was with his Daddy but that did not help me at all! I cried when I left and had to hold it in on the way to work. Luckily we were busy with all sorts of stuff so I was able to keep my mind off of not being with him. What a strange feeling it is to leave your baby. You feel like you aren't whole. Like you are missing your arm, leg (insert your appendage of choice here), whatever. On the drive home I was literally aching to hold him. I can't imagine what this Monday will be like when I leave him at day care for the first time. I'm sure I will be a mess... thank God the kids don't come until Tuesday!! Needless to say my husband did an amazing job of watching wee man this week. I am very proud of both of them. They showed me they can survive without me...

Tuesday saw Cael meeting his Great Great Aunt Nila and some of my teacher friends. Courtney brought him up to my school in the morning and then to Pleasant Ridge to meet his people. That afternoon my Great Aunt Nila flew in from New Orleans. She was on her way to Salina to meet up with Grandma & Aunt Kim. She had a terribly long lay over so Mom picked her up from the airport and just decided to drive her to Topeka to meet them. On their way to Topeka they stopped in here to meet Cael. It was a VERY fast meeting as we were on our way to the Dr. office for shots. Yes people - SHOTS!! Ouch!! I have never seen someone turn that shade of purple in my life!! He didn't scream until afterwards. After he turned purple. He fell asleep right away after shots and then came the fussiness. He was pretty fussy the rest of the evening until bathtime at about 8:30. We put him down around 10:00 and he slept until 4:00!!! That was a good night!

Wednesday and Thursday weren't anything too exciting. Cael spent a good part of Thursday with Amanda, Nicolas & Anna so Courtney could take care of some stuff. Then today he was home with Daddy all day. Jared (Tio Hughes) stopped by tonight and we had dinner. Now he & Courtney are outside, Cael is asleep and I am downstairs all by my lonesome. Tomorrow Courtney's going to go to a Royals game with Jim, Gipper & Jared to have HIS "spa day" as he called it. As you might recall he sent Joy & me to the spa for a day in July and he has been complaining that he hasn't gotten to do anything. So baby boy and I are going to go to Mom & Dad's for the evening. Hope everyone had a good week! Check back next week for Cael's 2 month picture... I can't believe he's been here for 2 months!!
