Oh, what a weekend!

This is a picture of my sweet baby shopping at Target on Sunday.

Why yes, he IS wearing a flannel blanket sleeper with footies. Oh, and it was over 70 degrees, too. Let's just say that I'm a very bad packer.

Last weekend, we headed to PA for Bob's high school reunion. It was on a Saturday night, but we headed up on Friday to spend some time with the grandparents.

As luck would have it, my mom was in town, too. So Little Elvis got to visit with THREE grandparents this weekend. He loved all of the extra attention.
Before we headed out on Friday morning, he wanted to show off his new trick. He's learned how to pull the dining room chair out, climb into it and sit like a big boy. (Mommy note: Since we've gotten back, he's moved on to dancing in the chair. Yay.)

He seems to like this new outlook, because...

he decided to branch out during our visit and try other chairs. He looks like a little squinchy-faced king, doesn't he?

After spending just a few days with grandparents (a few hours with my mom, and the weekend with Bob's) he learned several new tricks -- he can tick tock for clocks (guess I need to get us one now, huh?) oo oo for owls, and can hum. Bob's dad also said he heard Little Elvis say "yellow."
Here he is with Grandpa Stew trying to become the new spokesperson for HonestKids. I still think he would be better at shilling KozyShack, though.
From what I've heard, he wasn't easy to get to sleep on Saturday night. But I don't think his grandparents minded too much.
Back to the Target shopping trip. I packed Little Elvis an outfit for each day of the trip, two pajamas, and had one extra outfit in his diaper bag.
We had to use the extra outfit on Friday. (It's in the throne picture and NOT one of my favorites, which is why it was banished to the diaper bag in the first place.) He really soiled his Saturday outfit and managed to get completely soaked in his Sunday outfit. The blanket sleeper was my just-in-case-it-was-cold pajama option. He made a mess in his other pajamas, and it was our only option.
Target was a last minute stop and we got confused looks as our angel ran through the aisles (sans harness, because I forgot that, too) in his footy pajamas.
I used to overpack to the extreme for him, but thought we were past that stage. Since he wears just a diaper around the house, he's been only going through one outfit a day. I don't know what I was thinking. At least 2 outfits per day next time, for sure!

At least he still seems happy in his too warm flannel pj's. He is always so happy!!!!!

A couple of months ago, too forgot the cardinal rule of motherhood:overpack. We were at the library, and the 4 year old was just too excited to go home. (Despite the fact that her brother had a diaper explosion.) So I put on my happy face and wheeled my bare chested Huggies diapered child through the public library on a Saturday afternoon. Hilbilly Walmart poster child, we have arrived!

Your sweet baby looks adorable. I love those footed pajamas.

Love the pjs. Isabella has been going through a lot of pjs at night too. I think it might be time to switch to bigger diapers.
