Twice the Speed of Life

This week has blown by. I made Carey go to Marietta Wednesday on his last day off to get me a new military ID. Mine was expired. Sawyer was just a little younger than Oscar when I got my last one and my hair was also in the same rough stage. I felt a sense of deja vu, like I was starting to repeat the last four years. Say it isn't so. :) My espresso machine has been broken since just before Oscar was born and the only place in Atlanta that I could find that was willing to see if they could repair it was also in Marietta so we dropped that off while we were there too. Then Carey and I went out to lunch. Lunch dates are a little different with a babe, but it was nice not to have Sawyer out with us too and worry about him. We picked Sawyer up early and took both boys to see Carey's grandparents. They hadn't met Oscar yet and as his middle name is after Carey's grandfather's, we thought it high time they meet. I hung out inside with Oscar and Grandad and Audrey and Carey took Sawyer fishing on the lake. They didn't catch anything, but came back happy. Carey's uncle came over to get his boat and showed Sawyer how to feed the geese. He let him play on the boat and on the old tractor. He thought it was great fun.

Yesterday, our friend Megan came down to visit. She's home for the summer and has been wonderful about making time for us. We played blocks and sand and had a great dinner. Megan is so great with both boys, it gave me some time to get somethings done and give them each some attention. 
Both boys are surprising me with their growth. Sawyer has been such a huge help with Oscar. We still have to remind him to be gentle with the baby, but he's so willing to get things and entertain him. Oscar has continued to stretch out his nights and is starting to get an evening routine down. Last night he slept from 9p until 5a!! I woke up and had no idea what time or what day it was. It was amazing. But even normally, he's doing about 9/10p until 3/4a. Sawyer didn't do that until 8 or 9 MONTHS. Let alone 11 weeks. Our friends the Masons came over and brought dinner this evening. Sawyer, DuBois, and Chloe spent a few hours running wild while Tamara and I caught up. Oscar went to sleep soon after Sawyer and I am hoping he'll sleep better than a baby tonight!

Free and Easy Down the Road I Go

Yesterday, we drove to Charlotte. Since we've moved to Atlanta we've gone back to Charlotte for three of the last four Fourth of July holidays. Carey was supposed to come with us this time, but he got a subpoena for the 5th and wasn't able to make it. Admittedly, I was incredibly nervous about making a 250 miles drive with Sawyer and Oscar by myself. But, it turned out actually to be a really easy trip. Yes, it took almost 5 hours instead of 4. Since I'd fed Oscar right before we left and he'd been up and playing for an hour and a half, he fell asleep before we'd even made it to the highway. I brought our portable DVD player and let Sawyer watch a movie for the first half of the trip. He was quiet, Oscar was sleeping, and I got to talk to my friend Jarrod for an hour and a half. He lives in San Diego and was able to spend the early morning drinking coffee and chatting with me while I drove. Shockingly, we didn't encounter any traffic so I drove until we hi…

Friends are Family

We had a wonderful visit in Charlotte. It went by way too fast as usual but was lots of fun. We walked on the greenway close to Derrell and Lindsay's (rental) house, went to see their new house that they are buying, had a cookout with the Clark family, had brunch with our friends Steve and Darcy and their baby, Chloe, and Sawyer got to go see Derrell's work truck.
