By humpledinger that vacation flew by!
We learned a few things while away visiting family.
1. We need to someday have a little covered porch to drink coffee under and listen to the rain.
3. Jared takes really nice photographs!
4. plan in ample extra minutes... extra half hours even... when you are trying to get yourself, as well as an infant ready to go to a wedding.
There was plenty of time - it seemed. Until right before I was about to get a chance to shower... Mt. St. Helen erupted out the side of Benjamin's mouth. While both Jared and I were getting ready, we didn't notice that it had happened. When we go to pick him up, the back of our little man's head was covered in regurgitated milk. Then came the question... Who needs a bath/shower/cleaning worse? Mom? or Benjamin? Ben won the coin toss. We gave him a bath in the sink and there was just enough time that I could dunk my unruly bed-head under the tub faucet. fortunately I don't think anyone Really noticed...
5. Traveling long distances with a 6 week old isn't SO bad...as long as one is willing to pump her boobs while riding along in the car. Yes - I did it. All the truckers driving by... got a peek - or at least received a new curiosity of "what the hell does that woman have attached to her?" I hope they googled it when they got home... BUT by doing this... we could pop a bottle in Ben's face behind us to quell his screaming, wait until the gas/bladder stop to burp him and get the dirty dirty diaper changed, and hardly any time was lost!
