This past week Jeanne and I had a real treat and a challenge. Angie and Ben went to Washington D. C. to attend the wedding of a family member. They debated about taking Josh and decided it was best to leave him with us.
I learned quickly there is a reason 20 / 30-year-old people have babies and why older people do not. It is a lot of work. 🙂 Josh was an absolute jewel to be with but having said that, with an eleven month old baby you are always on duty.
So we had Josh for a whole week and my big night was Wednesday evening because Jeanne had to work late. I had a bit of trouble with the car seat but once I got that figured out, we made it home and went right to playing all sorts of things.
It was fun to think as I was rocking and giving him his bedtime bottle in the same rocking that I also rocked his Mom in about 24 years ago. We talked about that and he thought that was cool as well.
Finally Sunday arrived and we all trucked out to the airport to meet the kids. I love the joy in this image even though it isn’t much of a picture. When Angie and Ben saw Joshua they both light up with big smiles. As babies typically do he was a little less excited but that only lasted a little while.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your Thursday. Be careful.
