When we got to my parents hous Saturday, we learned that Mer and I had both dressed our babies in overalls and we were both wearing jeans, scarves and white shirts, ha!

Me and my little man!

Mer was getting ready to leave for a bachelorette party and Charlotte was not happy about it!

Wearing Daddy's hat

We got to visit Aunt Riss while she was in town from Chicago

We went up to Tommy Bahamas at Market Street to visit. Mr. Graham had a slight meltdown while we were there! While I was bouncing G on my knee, trying to calm him down and eat and drink with the other hand, we realized how much life has changed in the past few years! HA! Miss you Auntie Riss, so good seeing you!

Clarissa's sister Jess finally got to meet Mr. Graham too!! Overall it was a great weekend!!!

Date Night: Trent Willmon

Thursday night, Chad and I left Graham with his Grandparents and went to see Trent Willmon at Dosey Doe in The Woodlands. It was so fun. Much better date night than the typical dinner and a movie. The concert was acousitc and it was just Trent and he was so good. He played some great new songs we hadn't heard and some of our old favorites. We both love him, and always wear his CD out on road trips. We will defintely do that as a date again!

That is the perfect way to describe the way I feel today. Let's see... the day started off pretty good and as usual, Graham woke up and nursed, then went down for his morning nap without a hitch. After he woke up we played, then he started to get fussy, I tried to feed him again (even though it was early) and he was having trouble but acting hungry so I decided to suction out his nose (which he HATES) then after still not being able to get him to settle down and nurse, I finally put him in his swing with his paci to chill out and it settled him down right away. He fell asleep again, I  then woke up cranky, so I nursed him again, ended up giving him a bath and got myself showered and he was fine. Then, I needed to go up to the front office to print out some tickets for a concert we're going to tonight, Graham is fussing again, we get outside, and it just started to rain. I decided to drive up there instead of taking the stroller. Then we get there and the printers are all out of toner. Then I realize it's 2:00 and I haven't eaten a bite or had a sip to drink all day. Graham is fussing again, but I decide to run to get something to eat real quick. He continues to cry the whole way to Sonic and the whole time we're in the line. I finally get him to settle down and he falls asleep, then on the way home, I realize my Sonic drink has a hole in it and is leaking all over the place including my clothes. We get home and all the parking spots close are taken, one of them by an apt. maintanaince golf cart. I take Graham in, go back to get my food and clean up the drink mess. Graham is asleep still. Sit down to eat, Graham startles and wakes up crying. He fell right back to sleep though, and I was able to eat.

I realize that none of the things that happened today are that big of a deal. I am beyond blessed and thankful for my life. Even as things were going wrong one after the other, I kept reminding myself about all the ways it could've been worse. For example, I almost wore a new shirt that I bought yesterday, if I had my drink would've gotten all over it instead of the old one I wore. The printer at the office worked just enough to be able to print the tickets with the barcode printing out good. The way my car's cupholder is, the drink spillage was contained to the cupholder. Graham is such a good baby and rolled over again this morning! I am going on a date night with Chad for the first time in a long time, and we are really excited about it and the concert (which we almost missed, we just remembered about it Tuesday and were able to get good tickets still) And finally, Graham just woke up smiling. I am blessed, and thankful. Just a little frazzled. Gotta go nurse my sweet baby...

Pokorny Family Reunion 2010

This weekend we went to New Braunfels to celebrate Chad's Grandmother's 80th birthday. She is such an amazing woman. It was a surprise for her, and she was shocked when she opened the door on Saturday morning. Everyone had such a great time. Chad's family his huge and almost every person came. Gamme (Chad's Grandma) has 4 kids, 12 grandkids, and 12 great-grandkids (not including 2 on the way!). Chad's aunt and cousins made a slideshow of her life and we all watched it together, there were not many dry eyes in the room. We all got a copy afterward which was so sweet. I am so glad to be a part of this amazing family. I feel like I have been a part of it my whole life, not just 2 years. That's what is so great about this family. We had such a good time, and Graham did awesome. We even got to float the river with everyone while Chad's parent's babysat Graham. Graham was quite a hit with everyone, especially all the kids. Chad's cousin Laney, was all about Graham and Chad. She kept calling Chad "Mr. Kissy Face" I asked him who he kissed and she said "You! When you got married!" Haha so funny. When we said bye to her she told me " Bye, don't kiss your husband!" Haha, I better watch out!! She said Graham was so cute all the time and that he had "big, googely eyes" she is such a character. The last night we were there a bunch of us stayed up late and played Apples to Apples and cracked up the whole time. It was so fun. Thank you to everyone for an amazing weekend, we can't wait to do it again!!
