When I was picking out his clothes for the trip, I picked clothes my grandma would approve of, looking back she was so vocal on how babies should be dressed. I recently sent my sister pictures of Gideon and she texted me the day that she received them and said Grandma would of approved of his outfit, I guess I am not the only one that thinks of her often.
This was a busy weekend for us, I went to the lake with the girls for our annual shopping trip and I can honestly say we shopped till we dropped or should I say till we couldn't put anymore into the car. I had so much fun, Josh has been working non-stop and I haven't really had any "me" time and so it was nice to be able to have adult conversations the whole time. I was very good and stuck to the " Not shopping for Gideon" rule. I was able to actually try on the clothes instead of bringing them home and then having to return them because I didn't like how they looked. The only drawback to the whole trip was it soooo cold, which is another reason I was glad the little one was nice and warm at the grandparents house.

the office, and I do my best to help with taking care of Gideon when I can, my work has recently taken an interesting turn... and is requiring much more of my time. In theory, I'm working right now, but I thought I'd take a break to post in here about how great Tammy has been with taking care of everything so I can do this work.
I've been trying to help watch Gideon when I can, just to make sure Tammy gets a break every now and then. The truth is she still takes on the lion's share of the responsibilities lately, and a lot of the time when I am watching him she uses the time to go run errands and get other things done that need doing...
I know I'm not telling anyone anything new when I say she's amazing, but it certainly bears saying anyway.
Hopefully this overtime and traveling stuff calms down next week, at which time I think I might make a few dinners, do some laundry, clean the house, help more with Gideon, and hopefully give her a chance to truly relax and unwind for an evening.
