Too Fast


Making a Face at Daddy

If you close enough in the picture, you can see that Shepherd already has an attitude problem. Yes, yes... we're working on it. It seems he's figured out how to tastefully insult his parents, be it by public humiliation with his gastro-works or the subtle display of disaproval shown in how he looks at us.

Actually, this is nothing more than our own fault. Forrest and I figured out last week that Shepherd LOVES it when you stick your tongue out at him, or make raspberries with your tongue hanging out. He's even, at times, stuck his back out at us. It's quite cute to watch him try to stick his tongue out, because often, he doesn't get it out.

Anyways. Today has been okay. The weather outside is absolutely depressing. We've been stuck inside most of the day, with one little adventure to Sam's Club to get some snacks and check on their prices for diapers. Surprisingly? They weren't cheaper. Well, if I get the off-brand diapers (which I totally don't trust now, thanks to several ruined outfits) they'd be cheaper. Then it was back home to finish laundry and start packing. Yep, we're kinda crazy like that. We're driving 7 hours tomorrow night to visit family. We're so excited. Forrest's brother and his girlfriend will be there. Also? His mom lives in the same town that I went to college at. I absolutely LOVE this place, and can't wait to go back. There's so much I want to do, and so little time to cram it all in. Every time I go to Boone, I want to eat at Phan's Japanese Steakhouse (little place in the mall), Black Cat Burrito (where Forrest and I went on our first date!), Mellow Mushroom, and of course, Woodlands... I want to get ice cream or fudge at Kilwin's in Blowing Rock, walk around campus, and drive out to the Parkway. The one sure thing is that we'll drive right by
