First Trip

I've been nervous about taking Brayden on a trip, but at the same time I am really ready to go somewhere. So I talked to my parents and the 4 of us decided to take a mini-trip to Dallas.

(This picture has nothing to do with Dallas but I couldn't not post it because it's just too cute. Ignore my messy bedroom please..it has since been cleaned!).

Brayden did really well. My parents were in the room next to us and they kept him with them the first night. He has gotten off of his 9-6 sleeping schedule but he did sleep from 10-4 and then slept again til 7:30.

Daddy and Brayden in the hotel room:
Chris surprised me with an early mother's day gift...a David Yurman bracelet with garnets (Brayden's birth stone).



When we got home we decided to give B some rice cereal. I fed him first with a spoon and he did way better than I thought he would. I also put rice in his bottle which is something they had tried at the hospital (instead of Thick-It 2) but he had had some residule (which means after 3 hours he still had some food on his tummy). My plan was that if he felt fuller he would sleep longer. I am going to give it a few days and see if I'm right.


So cute in his "I just had a bath, my head is cold" hat:
We had a really great weekend. I got a TON of shopping done - lots of cool stuff. I got a fantastically amazing deal on this certain pair of shoes that I've wanted for years...I thought Chris was going to keel over when he saw the box (he's familiar with the designer and the price) but he was even impressed with my deal! We had such a great trip!
