Now for the final installment of our anniversary. While Pat and I were living it up, Ben got to have his first night away from us with Meo and Omi!!
Ben and I went to Meo and Omi’s before his second nap on Saturday. We had lunch and got all his stuff situated. I still don’t full understand how such a tiny person can have so much stuff! Seriously, my parent’s nice, neat living room was completely full of baby stuff. A bouncer, his eating chair, toys, a mobile, blankets, diapers, wipes. The list goes on. Of course I over packed for him. But that’s what I do. I wanted to make sure Ben had everything he needed! I think it is better to be have things you don’t need than be lacking when dealing with a baby.
Along with packing too many things, I also had typed out about four pages of Ben’s schedule and instructions. I am so lucky that my mom is a lot like me in feeling the need to over prepare and give a ton of information that might not be needed. She didn’t seem to mind my need to explain everything about Ben’s life over and over. Again, she has raised two kids, so she knows what she is doing. But I felt a lot better giving all the information. So thank you, Mom!
After Pat and I left, Ben’s day proceeded pretty much as normal. He had play time, more milk, and more play time. He even took a short third nap! Woot! My parents had some family friends over for the evening, so Ben got have a nice Saturday night too! Ben charmed them of course. We are so lucky he is such a great kid.
Since I sadly wasn’t actually with Ben, I don’t have a full play by play of his time. But luckily Meo sent me a bunch of pictures of him having fun! Pat and I are so thankful to Meo and Omi for taking such good care of Ben. It was wonderful to be able to get away and relax. It was a really great weekend. And the best part was being back together with my wonderful family. Great anniversary, Team Cartwright!
Here are some pictures of Ben’s weekend. (Meo took them all, so sadly she isn’t in any of them. There are plenty of Omi though!!)
