List-O-Mania

1) Shepherd slept through the night last night... and by through the night, I mean 9 hours, where I had to wake him up because I was swimming in my boobs. He then went back to sleep for 2 more hours after that. When he woke up, I swear, he looked 3 times bigger than he was yesterday. Is that possible???

2) Saturday we went over to Beth and Chris's house for dinner. It was so nice to hang out with other adults who laugh easy and cook extremely well (Beth's lasagna was the best I've had in a while)... and of course, we watched Shepherd flirt with Mia, and watched her proceed to slap some sense into him... hehehe... Both of them were so adorable, we ate them for dessert.

3) Sunday, we kept the nursery at church, and there were 15 babies in there. And 6 adults. Forrest walked away feeling happy that we only have one. I walked away crying saying I want more! Of course, Shepherd was the cutest of them all... but there were a few I snuck in my back pocket and took home...

4) We head to Charleston on Friday. We're flying down, thank goodness.. but we're looking forward to it. Last time I flew with Shepherd, he was still sleeping a lot during the day. Any advice on how to get him to sleep on the plane without giving him drugs?!

5) Forrest and I are trying to plan something for our Anniversary weekend that's a.) affordable, b.) kid friendly, and c.) did I mention affordable... free would be preferable. Any ideas? Currently, we're debating going camping or staying here and going out while someone babysits...

6) How many peppers did Peter Piper pick? seriously... I've always wanted to know....

How awesome that he slept 9 hours!! As wonderful as life with an infant is, it gets even better when they start sleeping like that! Shepherd really is a cutie. It's so neat to see him growing up in your pictures. Good luck on the airplane. You've probably already gotten the advice from your doctor or others to make sure Shepherd is sucking (on you or a pacifier!) on take-off and landing so that his little ears won't hurt. As far as encouraging sleep maybe eating will do the trick. Have fun!
P.S. I really do admire you for being able to make it through these first three months being in a new city without lots of family and friends around. Way to go!
