Where's The Baby?

Something odd has been going on in our house this week as Jonathan is no where to be found. He's not in his bed...



...or eating in his booster chair...



...or even playing with his toys.



How could this be? Did I leave him at Walmart after he insisted to be let out of the cart and I finally gave in? Did the proverbial gang of gypsies come by our house on a particularly trying day and I let them take him? Did we sell him on E-bay so we could take another tropical vacation?

OF COURSE NOT! Jonathan is actually spending the week in WV with my Mom and Dad. It's been relaxing for us and my parents are completely loving it. Jonathan is apparently having the time of his life if the conversations I've had with him on the telephone the past few days are any indication. And it has definitely been awesome to spend so much one-on-one time with Bryan!

BUT, I am ready for my little guy to come home! I meet my parents on Sunday to pick him up and I can't wait! I have realized that, even though my life has been completely hectic since Jonathan was born, I prefer it that way. I am happy to foster what I hope to be a strong bond between Jonathan and my parents and I am willing to let him go and stay with them again, but I miss his little smiling face, his boisterous laugh and his constant inquiry of "Mommy doing?" Luckily I have TONS of stuff to do over the next few days so I'm sure the time will pass quickly and that we'll have a lot of fun.

I am really looking forward to Sunday morning, though! :)

I know, it's weird not having him around isn't it? I don't know if I could leave the kids with the grandparents longer than overnight - we've only done that a few times, but I bet you're getting soooo many things done! Plus, I bet the one on one time with your hubby is nice. Hope you guys are having a good time!

Sunday will be here before you know it...and Monday you'll be wanting to ship him back...HAHAHA! J/K. It is a strange feeling not having them around. But enjoy your time with the hubby.

Didn't we tell you? Jonathan flew out to meet us on vacation. Actually, he's down at the jazz bar talking up some French-speaking chick as we speak . . .

Awww...that is so nice you let him spend a whole week with your parents. I am sure they are eating him up! I don't think I am ready for that yet! Of course my parents are like 10 hours from us, so it makes it a little difficult. Maybe when she is a teenager, ha! Well, Sunday will be here really fast, the weekends always fly, don't they? Enjoy your last two child free evenings with your hubby.

Wow! If only I could ship my kids off for the week! Enjoy your alone time!
