A Wonderful Weekend

Weekends have become so much more precious to me now that I'm back to work. Before that, each day just flowed into the next and the only difference was that Jeramie was around more. Now, I'm back to longing for Friday afternoons. I look forward to spending all of my time with Jeramie & Ethan, and even find myself not wanting to leave the house! There's just something that feels right about being home, in my comfy clothes, snuggling with my boys for 2 days straight!

This weekend, however, was a busy one. On Friday night, I went out with Brandi for some much needed "our time". We had dinner at Olive Garden (of course) then went to see "The Time Traveler's Wife". Oh. My. Word. What a great movie!! I've been trying to read the book, but felt too confused to get into it. Now that I understand the concept, I'm real excited to finish reading it. If the movie was that good, I know that the book will be even better.

Saturday brought a visit from my mama & daddy, known to Ethan as Grandma B & Poppy. Daddy hadn't seen Ethan in almost a month, so I was happy he was able to make the trip!

Mama and I left the boys at home and went to Babies R Us to do a little shopping. Two hours, and many baby items, later we came back to the house and set up the biggest of those items: a highchair! Now Ethan can gum his squash and bananas in the comfort of his very own seat. We put him in it this afternoon, for the first time, and it basically swallows him whole! I think it's hilarious :)


"Yum....Carrots!"

We ventured out to Wake Forest for a cookout on Saturday night, and had a lot of fun hanging out with friends. It's such a cute little town, and I would be lying if I said Jeramie and I didn't think about a possible move out that way (remember, I said I was 82% serious...).


Then, today, we finally made it to Visio Dei for the first time since Ethan's surgery. I really miss it when we're not there each week, and I'm thankful for the way I feel when we walk through the doors. I love the community, the teaching, and the worship that we experience each time we're there.

Ethan also made his 2nd ever trip to the grocery store this afternoon, and did beautifully. This is big news, considering he's been as ill as a hornet this weekend. He has a 3rd tooth trying to make its way through, and it's taking FORever. Who's with me in saying that last week's traumatic & dramatic unexplained fever can be blamed on his newest pearly white??

Now, the wonderful-ness is slowly coming to an end. Ethan's in the bed, and I've got some planning to do for my "other" babies this week. I'm going to do my best to appreciate and be thankful for my job this week, but I'm sure I'll also be wondering...

"Is is Friday, yet?!"

Hi there! I just read your post on the Williams Family Blog and would love to talk to another heart mom. I looked on your blog for a contact but I didn't see one. I don't have a blog myself but we do have a caringbridge website. I've been reading people's blogs now for a few months and I've been following yours...small cyberworld :) I'm a bit leary of leaving my email so I don't know how we could "get together". Any suggestions?

Hi Crystal! What is your caring bridge site? I didn't realize you are a heart mom, too! I can contact you through your site, or you can e-mail me: joyemullis@hotmail.com
