William's first overnighter without his parents. Yes, William seems comfortable with us. Helen and Ben decided to let us take care of him while they took a well-deserved mini-vacation in Gatlinburg.
We picked William up from their house in time to go to the Nashville Library's "Mother Goose on the Loose" time. We didn't use a stroller because he loves to walk.
We must confess that we watched some of the Olympic games too. But we tried to keep it to a minimum.
We had a great night. William loved his bath, Grandpa's book reading and had no problem falling asleep. This picture was taken in the morning to send to his mother. I was afraid he might wake up and be scared that he was not in his surrounding but no problem there either.
Cheekwood Botanical Garden where there was a special display of treehouses.
James had more trouble getting into it than William.
He learned very quickly that if he turned around on his belly, he went down faster. He giggled and laughed so much that the other parents really enjoyed it too. He seemed to be the kid having the most fun.
We had arrived there at 9:30 am when Cheekwood opened but by now there were LOTS of children.
Rest of the day was taken with lunch, nap, lots of playing, bath time, reading time, rocking to sleep time.
This night didn't go as well as the first. He must have dreamed badly because I heard him shortly after 1 am. He never woke up but Omi sure did for 1 1/2 hours. Then he really woke up at 4:40 am, needed his diaper changed (in the dark) and was bright-eyed and happy as can be. A little time in the 'big bed' seems to be nice.
Thanks, Ben and Helen, for trusting us with your precious child.
