Even though we didn't do much on Saturday except hang out with our babies and my sister, it was a nice change from what we're usually doing when we get together. Normally we're planning baby showers, attending baby shower, making favors for showers and generally running around like chickens with our heads cut off. Cuddling with these cutie pies was nice for a change!
From left to right, my baby boy Noah, little George in the middle (Kristin's son) and my sister's baby girl, Quorra. Hard to believe she's six months old already! Time certainly flies!
Sunday morning, we zipped over to my parent's house so that my aunt's, also visiting from Pennsylvania, could meet my baby boy and have some cuddles too. That afternoon, I left Noah in the capable hands of my husband so I could have a ladie's night and enjoy dinner and a movie with my girlfriends. It was hard for me to leave him and I missed them both while I was out but, like I told Kevin, it felt more like I was forgetting something. Like I misplaced my wallet or didn't put on any underwear.
You might be wondering what movie I watched and if you guessed The Hunger Games, like 99% of the world went and saw, you'd be correct. I read all three of the books in less than a week so when my friends decided to go see the film, I jumped at the chance to go with.
I'm not going to go into too much detail here in case you haven't read the books (come out from under your rock) or seen the movie. BUT, as my friend MK put it, it was a great representation of the book but was more like a cliff notes version. It left me wanting more as far as the relationships between Katniss and Gale, Katniss and Peeta and most of all, it left me wanting more of the actual games. Don't get me wrong though, the movie was amazing and I'll be watching it a million more times. I couldn't get enough of Lenny Kravitz, who played a perfect Cinna, and Effie was amazing. I can't wait to see what the producers come up with for books 2 and 3!
On an entirely different note, I didn't get a chance to link up with Sara yesterday for Shameless Sunday Snapshots so today is the day you get some pictures of my baby boy.
He is one month old today and I can't believe it. Before I know it he'll be driving me to my retirement community to play bingo. (Don't speed Noah!)
He's not happy about aging though, as soon as I told him I had to get rid of his newborn diapers and put a 0-3 month onesie on him, he got a little mad.
