On Friday night I became an Aunt again. After joining our local YMCA, we high-tailed it to the hospital for a meet and greet. He's a very handsome young man, has lots of hair, and I was thrilled to see his little eyes open while holding him. Vance was very concerned about his Aunt Kristin and kept asking questions all weekend long like, "Aunt Kristin will be very hungry at the hospital. When will she eat? Where's the hospital's kitchen? Who will make her dinner?" "Will Uncle Todd stay with her so she doesn't get scared and cry at night?" We're anxious for another visit, but will give them some much-needed time first!

On Saturday we went to the mall, made some Christmas returns, and bought drapes for the loft. Our friends (Hi Dave! Hi Sarah! Hope Samuel is feeling better!) were supposed to come over for dinner that night, but their son has an awful ear infection, so we turned lemons into lemonade and headed back to the 'ville for a dinner party. My parents got new dining room furniture and were having a party to christen it. It was a very nice party and I'm sad to say I didn't have my camera with me to document the occasion.
Today, we went and utilized the Y. We dropped Vaughn off in the childcare room, played some basketball with Vance, then dropped him off with childcare while Justin and I went to work out. We also signed up Vance for his first basketball team. Should be interesting. Hopefully he has fun and meets some buddies. Homeboy needs another friend besides Mommy. Anyways, as soon as we got home I started popping pain reliever. I'm a little concerned that I won't be able to get out of bed in the morning and have already begun devising a plan on how to effectively Parent from the couch. I kid! I know the best thing will be to at least walk on the treadmill tomorrow, so we'll see how it goes.
Backtracking, Vance's last day of Little Gym was Friday and he couldn't have been happier about it. He was done with Little Gym even before we signed him up for this session. Friday mornings have been a struggle and I'm glad that we're done too. He even said it himself, "I'm DONE with Little Gym!" after I had confirmed that it was his last class. Cute picture, goofy smile.
We also had to move Vaughn's crib down to a lower level. She was biting on the top rail and is beginning to pull herself up.
Phew! It's been a long weekend!
