Our little family of 4 (including Ernie of course) survived our first road trip this week! We woke up bright and early, and by that I mean 4am, on Monday morning and headed north on I-35 to Dallas so daddy could meet with customers and Ford, Ernie, and I could hang out with Aunt Cori and Embry. Since Ford is now my full time job, I have the flexibility of tagging along with Jon on his weekly trips whenever I want. Call us crazy for going away with a 4 week old but it was so nice to get a change of scenery and stay at my sisters house where we were comfortable and had lots of fun and relaxing time together.
Embry was so excited to see her cousin and give him lots and lots of kisses
I've said before that Ford is incredibly alert for a newborn but this week he has probably broken the record for most awake time for a baby. Seriously Monday he fought and fought me on a nap and finally crashed after 6 hours. We hit up some thrift stores (they are the best in Dallas) and are convinced he hates thrifting because he was not a happy boy. It could have very well been over stimulation but man he just continues to surprise me with how long he can stay up! Now that we are home, I hope to work on a better nap schedule for him during the day. He is sleeping great at night so I can't really complain.
Dad's and their babies got to watch the first MNF together
Ford was really into the TV...so cute
(Notice Ford's old man receding hairline... his hair is falling out like crazy!)
Yesterday we hit up more thrift stores and ran into the Dallas Museum of Art so I could feed my anti-shopper
I fed Ford and Embry had a one man band... she couldn't be any cuter folks!
Ford did great in the car, slept the whole time and we pulled over to feed twice (and pickup fried catfish and chicken and dumplings from Cracker Barrel hehe). In fact most of us slept in the car...
We are back home getting unpacked and situated and celebrating this little man being 1 month old today!
