I had to take Ben for his dreaded MMR shot on Friday…something I was not looking forward to, but wasn’t so bad. Dan had left for Atlanta early Thursday morning, leaving me alone to take care of Ben and the 2 crazy dogs. Of course, since Dan was gone, this meant Ben was up 3x that night, and woke up extra early, and extra fussy. Dante was throwing up in the bedroom, while Ben was screaming in pain from a new and horrific looking diaper rash. Yay! Happy Friday to me! Luckily, after the doctor I headed to my parents’ house, where they let me and my entourage stay for the next 3 nights.
Friday afternoon Ben also had a very fun playdate with his long-distance girlfriend, Mia (23 months) and his buddy Jake (5.5 months). Unfortunately Ben was super cranky and laid on me most of the time and cried.
Ben wore a gorgeous new Darcy Brown sweater from his great Aunt Eileen. He also wore his signature jeans & TOMS. (For the record, Ben has a lot of other jeans and pants, but are all size 18 months…who knew Ben would be so svelte and not grow out of his current clothes as quickly as he used to!)
Ben is already looking forward to his next playdate with Mia this summer in LBI! After that, it won’t be long until their arranged marriage.
We leave for Chicago next Wednesday…Ben’s 2nd plane trip and our first “real” trip as a family! I’m very excited since I have never been to Chi-town and will be updating the blog with Ben’s Windy City wear.
