Yes, we're home and I've officially vowed never to take another roadtrip with my son for the next few years. So unless we have the fundage to fly, it's a no go for us. There were times that I wanted to pull over leave him on the highway and keep driving. He slept for 1 hour on the trip up there which was 16.5 hours and he slept none on the 19 hour drive home. To say that I was losing my patience was an understatement.
On a good note, the drive to KY was beautiful. The trees thru Arkansas, Tennessee and KY were absolutely gorgeous. I have no pictures to share because I left my camera here thinking my friend Janna was bringing hers. She thought the same thing and left her's at home. Oh well, maybe Aunt Brooke will send us the one's she took.
My little niece Emery Kate is so beautiful. I got to see her twice while there (only through the glass) but that was good enough for me. She's the cutest little thing in the world. Everyone in KY was doing great. Sis is getting along fabulous. You'd never guess she just had a baby a month ago. Emery is now up to 2 lbs. 5 oz. and is drinking from a bottle. Love that girl.
That's about it for now..we're glad to be home and see Daddy again. We missed him so much.
