Julia's First Night Away from Mommy :(


Poppy had asked several times before if Julia could come and spend the night with her. Well, you know you cannot let them do anything like that for the first six months that you have them. Poppy has been counting the days. We finally decided she was ready. The thought of being able to sleep past 5:30 a.m. was refreshing and chasing one toddler around for the evening versus two. Well, Carson decided to wake up around 6:00 a.m. so that plan was short lived.
She did take two of her brothers with her. She got her bath, popped some popcorn and sat down to watch a movie. She only got up once during the night and that was because of her stuffy nose but quickly went back to sleep.

Julia survived the night without Mommy and Daddy. She got a four-course breakfast and didn't even ask for me. I went to pick her up and she acted like I had been there the whole time. Although it kind of made me feel a little less loved, it is a huge relief to know that we now have someone in the family that she can stay with when needed and know that we are coming back to get her.

Leah.....I went thru Lily's closet tonight to see if she will need any summer clothes....Im thinking NOT...just a little embarrassed by the number of clothes she has. However, I do plan to go to the craft show this weekend in B'ham and purchase maybe a dress..(haha)
