Ok, I thought I'd let you know how my little trip to visit Christina in Georgia went!
She lives all the way on the other side of Georgia, so Penny, Dexy and I packed up and headed out last Monday morning. It was a good six and a half hour drive and we made awesome time. I only had to stop twice! Once to feed baby and another to change a super poopy diaper. Yeah, she has a habit of pooping all over herself on road trips... so my Pudgers spent the last couple hours in a diaper.
Penny slept... well, she slept. We had some rough times but I decided enough was enough and we're doing a modified cry-it-out so she can learn to fall asleep on her own. It's actually working really well!
Here's some cute photos! Penny reading with Marcus (oh goodness these kids got so big) and Dominic became obsessed with the Bumbo and insisted on sitting in it most of the time (wasn't he just born?!)
They had some kids sized plastic lawn chairs and Penny fit right in. Isn't she just so cute? And then Penny chewing on cheese at the commissary. She will chew on anything nowadays.
I did get stuck behind a couple tractors and combines though... oh well!
Now here's the news...
My sister Jennifer got engaged last week!!
She's been holding out on us, being the oldest sister and not being married yet, but her boyfriend proposed to her on their trip to California and of course, she said yes. We're a big wedding family. We love them!
Now that she's getting married I am soooooooo excited. Not just for the wedding itself, because that's cool, but to see my family. Family reunion! The earliest would be January, but we're looking at probably March, so I have to wait a whole ten months to see everyone. I'll be on the edge of my seat until then. I'll get to see my mom, my dad, my sister Jenny, Shannon and her kids, and Jessica and baby Avelyn. Plus all the other extended family. Wow! I have to find somewhere to stay now... maybe my dad's?
Maybe Penny will be a flower girl? ;) By March she'll be 15 months old! I can't even imagine. It's going to be so fun. Too bad Brandon won't be able to go because of flight school!
Other news that I haven't mentioned yet, but my sister Shannon is pregnant again! She's due right around when I was due with Penny. Another December baby. It'll be so
