Today I had a busy day full of outings with the boys! The funnest one today was for Wilson to experience a wading pool for the first time! He has come to love bathtime, so I figured that he would love the pool as well. But when we got there, and actually made an attempt to get in, Wilson was not too happy about that. The water must have been a little too cold for him or something, because each time I would try and put him in the water, he would start screaming, and cling to me with everything he had! Gradually, like everything else, he did warm up to the water. By the end of the time there, he was sitting on the edge, splashing, playing with toys, and having a good time! It's so much fun to see these type of firsts with him. Sometimes, I still can't even believe that he is here. Missing the first year of his life was never something I wanted to miss, but I am so glad that he is here now, and I get to experience these new things with him as he grows! :)

First Road Trip! :)

This week has been a new experience for both Wilson, and myself. My husband had a conference this week that he had to attend which lasts through the weekend. Being that Wilson has only been home for about a month now, I really wasn't too excited to stay by myself, so I decided to take a little road trip to my parent's house. It wasn't really one of the first experiences for Wilson that I wanted to do by myself, but it actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Wilson has never been in a carseat for longer than an hour, and Wednesday we did three hours! He fussed a little bit of the time, but then got over it after about 10 minutes and decided to take a nap. My other son Hudson was pretty content the whole time, and watched the movie "Cars" the whole way! :) Wilson has done pretty well for being away from home for the first time too! He struggled a little the first day we got here, but he has gotten more and more comfortable being at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a couple days. It has been nice to have the extra help while my husband is gone as well! But, tomorrow we head home, so it's another 3 hour trip we will have to conquer, and I hope that it goes as well as the way up here did! And all I have to say to my husband is, it's daddy time when we get home, and mommy gets a big break to go do something fun without kids for a bit! ;)
