Trip to Gramps and Nana's House

This past week, I felt a little daring and took a trip to see my family. Okay, not like it's a long trip or anything, but I haven't been in the car that long with Davis yet, let alone by myself. I felt crazy trying to run around the house and think of everything I needed to pack for him. Oh yeah, I have to pack for myself also. Don't forget baby. Haha...j/k. I tried to load everything up before I fed Davis to be ready to go. Fed him and flew in the car. Not too bad! He looooves being in the car, so thankfully, he slept the entire way. reassuring. We had such a great time while we were there that I really didn't want to leave. I was able to hang out with my sister, Emilee, everyday while we were there. I attempted to buy clothes on the trip, but with no success. I'm in that awkard stage again. Can't wear maternity clothes, but can't wear mine yet. Good times! But we went and ran errands and stuff, while my dad watched Davis. I did actually remember to pack the pump which is a true lifesaver! At my dad's house, they have the cutest nursery set up. Davis is the first grandchild, so for now, it's his room. Seeing as how there are 6 girls in the family, he'll be sharing someday. :) It's so great though to have everything there. He has the cutest little crib and Jamie stocked the room with pretty much everything we need while we were there. Note to self!
I was also able to get a much needed massage and seriously didn't want to get off the table when she was done. I am so sore in places and had no idea. I think I need to do that weekly. Haha...and then I wake up! It was such a nice treat, though. My dad had left work early that day to watch the lil munchkin. They are so great and sooo cute with him. I love watching them togheter. It's adorable.
The day I had to leave though was so blah. Blah as in the weather, that is. It had been storming on and off and I was so tired. But leave it to me, I'm going to figure it out. I get on the road and everything is nice and clear and I think it's going to be great. Wait, it's 5pm rush hour. What did I do!? UGGGG!!! Storm is back like a tsunami and Davis is crying. This nice 1 1/2 trip turned into almost 3 hours real quick. But we made it home in one piece and that's all that matters. Did I mention I'm ready to go back home again? Having Davis makes me realize I'm even more homesick now than before!

He's getting bigger :( Tear, tear

Sounds like my trips home! My parents live an hour from me - and I have to time it right with the feeding, getting the car loaded, and always feels like I'm running around like a freak! I'm so jealous of the massage :)
