What a weekend we had!! Not only is Reid experiencing "firsts," but I am too! I had my first night away from him since he was born -actually I haven't been away from him for more than 5 hours, so this was a big night. One of my good friends, Heather, had her bachelorette party over the weekend - it was a fun weekend event, but I just made it out on Friday night. We met at Joe T. Garcia's in Forth Worth, and went to a bar afterward that had a live band, and then back to the hotel for lots of yummy munchies and a shower for Heather. If I thought I would have a night of sleep, I should have known better! We didn't get to sleep until 4:30, but I had such a wonderful time hanging out with friends, laughing, eating, dancing and celebrating that it was all worth it. I can't wait until Heather and Tyler's wedding in December! How did Reid do you ask? Oh, poor thing, cried from midnight until 3 am when he finally took a bottle (this was his first time to wake up and not have Mama there to nurse him). But, when he awoke the next morning at 7:30 he was all coos and giggles, so all's good! We stayed all day Saturday and that night at my parent's house which was nice since I was exhausted and so I got to rest. On Sunday my mom and I took Reid to the park for the first time and he loved it! He loved watching all the kids play, and he enjoyed the swing. I can't believe how different it will be in a year when he will actually be running around with all the kids (and I'll be thinking back to how easy it was just a year ago when he was not mobile!)
Matt and I met at Baylor and started dating in 2000, married in '03, had Reid in '07, and Jace in '09. We are far from perfect, but we are committed to our family, our faith, and our friends, and enjoying the lives we lead!
