Out of pratice

Yesterday I got a call from my sister telling me that she is not feeling so well. She asked if I could come and watch my four month old nephew for awhile so she could get some sleep. I told her no problem, I had my girls skip swim lessons for the day, at the time it was 67 degrees out so I wasn't going to take them anyways. I stopped at Wegman's near her house and bought the fixings to make her a pot of homemade chicken noodle soup.

No sooner than I got there did she go upstairs and fall right asleep. My poor sis. My girls and Josh had a good time together. Madeline just adores him. So I make the soup for her and woke her up a little after 5 pm. She ate a bowl as did my girls and myself. She was still looking real tired so I asked her if she wanted me to take him home with me and I'd keep him overnight for her. She said sure (I did a little happy dance inside), so Josh came to Auntie Neen's for the night.

He is such a good boy, but I forgot a lillte something. That kids sometimes wake up in the middle of the night. It was my own fault really staying up until almost 2 am. That is why it hit me so hard when at 4:30 am I heard a little cry. But a quick diaper change and a 4oz bottle that he sucked down. A good burp and with the help of Mr. Seahorse he was back out in no time at all. My girls never really did that at all, the night I brought Madeline home from the hospital she slept from 10:30 pm to 6:30 am. They have always been good sleepers until recently, summer vacation and all.

I so love having him here it is nice outside right now so I think I'll take him for a walk with Madeline. Ed is out with Lillian running some errands.

You are a good sis.
Wish I had someone to take care of Ian when I am sick.
