Well friends, I'm going to try and catch you up on the past few weeks that have demanded my time and stole me away from you all! Bear with me..this will probably be long!
As I mentioned before, I was busy getting ready for my friend and co-worker Kara's baby shower on September 23rd and I'm glad to announce that it was a success! You should have seen me trying to fit all of her balloons into my car on a VERY windy day! That was quite a sight! Everything turned out perfect and we had a great time!
After the baby shower, Bryan and I went and babysat our favorite kids that night and took them to our favorite restaurant, Texas Roadhouse! We definitely had fun eating out as a "family of 5" and handled everything rather well! The experience was good practice for the future and I know it will be even easier with only one! Haha..We went home after babysitting and packed because we were going to Lorena for the weekend.
Friday, Sept 24th was the big day! Bryan and I planned on going to see Baby Ben and the family at the hospital that afternoon after school and it was torture having to wait that long! Good thing I was crazy busy that day! Why, you ask? That's because we had our first field trip to the fire station next door to the school! We headed out that afternoon and had a blast. It was so hot, but the kids did really well!
Benjamin Cooper Bradford arrived safely at 8:55 a.m and weighed 7 lbs, 13 oz! It was Bryan's first time to go to the hospital and see a newborn baby and he was a little bit nervous! I of course was not and grabbed Baby Ben and held him for the better part of an hour! There is nothing more amazing than holding a newborn baby in your arms! It was heaven!
We finally convinced Bryan to hold Ben and of course he did great! Oh and isn't this the cutest picture ever (sorry it's sideways..I can't figure out what the problem is!)?! He's going to be a great father one day!
Sadly, we had to give Ben back to his Mommy and get on the road to Lorena. Friday night was homecoming and Chandler was crowned Homecoming King! Yay Chandler! Lorena won and it was a great night!
Well, I think I'm going to stop here and continue with part 2 later!
