We survived the weekend! Friday morning started off not so fun...William had an appointment for his 2 month vaccinations. *tear*
No one warned me how hard of an appointment that would be! I cried right there in the doctor's office, and when we got home. In fact, I think the shots might have hurt me more than they did William...once pricked, he let out one big "OUCH! That Hurt!" howl, and then I scooped him up and he was totally fine. He went right in his car seat and finished out his nap like nothing ever happened. Me on the other hand? My mama heart broke into pieces!
Since the shots made William feel a bit yucky, he spent the majority of the weekend resting, and occasionally giving us a very pitiful "hold me" cry.
On Saturday, Nathan and I ventured out to explore a new park about an hour from our house. We didn't want to take the little guy with us because of him being a little off so my mother gladly offered to babysit for us. I don't even think William realized we were gone...he slept most of the time at her house!
This was the first time both Nathan and I had been away from William for more than 2 hours, and it was such a wonderful needed little break for us. The scenery was beautiful, and there was the slightest nip of fall in the air.
A special thanks to my parents, who let us steal away for the day and enjoy some time alone. It was much appreciated!
