Missing My Cowboy

My parents came to visit this weekend and brought my niece and nephew.  We had a great time!  The kids played well together and pretty much wore us adults out. 
I was so shocked that Keeler asked on Sunday morning if he could go back to Texas with them because he is always such a momma’s boy.   He was so excited about the idea.  I felt bad sending him with my parents as I knew they must be exhausted from the trip and having two extra kiddos.  But my mom told me to not discourage him from wanting to go, she was so impressed that he wanted to go.  We packed him a little bag and soon he headed out the door with them.  I had to hold back tears as I waved goodbye.  I just knew when I heard the doorbell ring about ten minutes after they left that he had changed his mind, but no, they just needed one more sippy cup.  My little cowboy is growing up. This is his first vacation that was totally his own idea. 

Silly Samuel & Keeler

I talked to my parents and Tyler’s parents all day yesterday to check in on him.  He was having a blast.  He went to his cousin Jakob’s basketball game and then he ended the day with Tyler’s parents.  Mimi reported that he had played at the park with his cousin Bryon and was getting ready to read books and head to bed.  This morning my dad emailed me and said when he got to their house this morning that he was requesting “blue ice-cream” for breakfast and informed them that he eats this every morning.  Such a little storyteller!

Yesterday was such a nice day.  Tyler was over at Granny’s helping her with house projects so I was home alone with Kallahan.  We cleaned up the house and then watched two movies that I have had on the DVR for over a year.  Yes, over a year!  This is because our TV time is always monopolized by Keeler.  Kallahan was so good all day but his little nose was running.  He has started waking up at night again so we tried giving him some rice cereal but that was a no go.  He didn’t know what to think and just spit it out.  I guess we will have to try again when he is feeling better.  I can't beleive that it is already time to start feeding him "food."  He was up almost all night.  We finally resorted to putting him in our bed with him on my chest because he was having problems breathing with his cold.  Poor little cowboy, we hope he gets to feeling better soon.    

I took off Thursday & Friday of this week to head to Texas to celebrate my mom’s birthday and of course pick up my little cowboy that I am already missing terribly.  I just don’t know what I did with all my time before him.
