It Has Been A While







Adam and I went on two different trips with a less than 24 hour layover at home which didn't provide enough time for me to blog. I know what you are thinking..."wow, Mandy must have been really busy to not have taken 10 minutes to blog." Well, your thoughts are right on...I was too busy. But I'm back with a vengeance.

Adam and I arrived back home early this morning and we had to say bye to Grandma, who graciously agreed to take care of Harrison while we were away. I know that Harrison had a fabulous time with her. When my mom picked us up from the airport, she informed us that he had learned how to crawl most of the stairs, flush the toilet, and drop his monkey out of the crib and cry for someone to come pick it up (just after this she let me know that she thought he is about to cut four teeth at once...lovely). "You know," I thought, "those were just the milestones that I hoped he would hit while we were gone." She did teach him other things, but the aforementioned ones just kind of stick out. Anyway, Harrison is growing like crazy. He seems like a little boy now. It is amazing what a big difference a week will make right now.
Oh, and did I mention that mom washed his hair with sunscreen while she was here? She saw a picture of a baby and "no tears" and thought it would work! Guess I can't blame her, but it was too funny!

So he survived...or shall I say Sherry survived! I can't believe that he is about to be a year old! Let's have another!!!

I am sure your mom had the best time. My mom is in town this week and she can't get enough of Miss Elliot. I agree with Leah - y'all need to have another. You make good ones. I know I am not your biological clock, but it's time...

Leah & Lindsay: I agree. Unfortunately, I can't make a baby by myself. It is my other half that needs the convincing.
