Weekend Family Trip=lost silky blanket
We took a family trip to see April and Jacob Hickman in Greenville, South Carolina this past weekend. I was a little nervous about the 7 hour drive with Carter. He played and watched tv, took two naps, and only whined for a total of 20 minutes. I was SO PROUD!!!!! Next I was worried about how he was going to sleep. He slept all night in his pack and play!! I was very thankful!
Our plans on Friday were to visit the zoo in Greenville but it was chilly and cold. We did meet April at work and had lunch downtown. We were able to see the bedding that April has chosen for little Emma Lynn. I loved it! Friday night we had dinner downtown and Carter was entertained watching everybody in the restaraunt.
Carter loved playing with Gidget and Izzy.. the dogs of course!
Saturday it rained all day but luckily we had planned to stay inside and possibly visit the children's museum. Carter decided he would take a 4 hour nap which knocked out the children's museum but allowed the adults to watch 2 movies!!! Due Date was pretty funny. Enjoyed my relaxing time. Jacob cooked his homemade sphagetti and meatballs that night. We visited Buy Buy Baby where Carter had his blue silky blanket. he played with the toys etc. and I did not know until later we did not leave with the blanket. Corey dislikes the "security" blanket so he was glad we lost it until bedtime!
Buy Buy Baby had nobody turn a blue silky blanket in:(
April came to the rescue with one that is for Emma Lynn when she arrives!! I am going to have to send it back when Carter receives his new one! He went to school today showing his teacher his blanket which is PINK !!!!
We are trying to decide the best ways to start disciplining Carter when he does something wrong. I used to spank his hands but now he has started spanking me back. Any suggestions? I am thinking a small switch or paint stick.. and possibly a time out mat. We might try both. Whatever it is I want it to be consistent so that he knows it is unacceptable. ??????
