After that I took him shopping at Babies R Us for way too long. He fell asleep in the cart, leaning over and resting on my purse with a blanket that I was purchasing on top. He slept for maybe 10 minutes until time to get BACK in the car.
Next, I would like to claim Wife/Daughter-In-Law/Granddaughter-In-Law of the Year because I stopped by Nigel's Grandmother's house for a visit. I didn't call, I just stopped in unprompted. She was so excited to see Kingston since she had only seen him twice until today. It was a really good thing to do because I know how special it was to her. We stayed about 45 minutes.
Finally, we went to Target for a few. Kingston was really tired but not really wanting to sleep. I ended up holding him and pushing the cart for 1/2 of the trip, which I tried to keep as short as possible. He did score a new toy, though, so it really wasn't that bad for him! Pictures playing with that to come, I'm sure.
After stopping for a visit with Grandpa on the way in (the highlight of the day for Kingston, I'm sure) we went to my friend Nicole's house for a trunk show. My friends Angie and Brandi have a website, MidgettGray.com, and they were having a sale at Nicole's. So I drug Kingston there, tired, hungry and over it. I stayed way too long and just got home at 9:00.
Having been all over town today, hungry, tired and probably pretty bored, Kingston was SUCH a good boy. He behaved on all accounts, especially at Nicole's at the end of the long day. I pushed him to his limits and he still was so chill. I am so lucky to have such a cool baby boy!
Shopping, pictures, more shopping. . . Kingston's dad definitely wouldn't have behaved nearly as good!!!!

I put a Banana flavored puff in his mouth and he didn't quite know what to do with it. It cracked me up, though, because it looks like teeth! I sometimes call him Bubba and with a set of chops like this, it's a perfect name!
I took this last picture this morning because Kingston is wearing an outfit that Nana bought him last time she went out of town. Thanks, Nana! It looked too big but it isn't!
So, there, Nana. Kingston is missing you and can't wait to see you on Friday. When Grandpa brags that he saw him today, you can brag and say that you were the subject of Kingston's blog today!

So the day was great. I sold hot dogs and hamburgers like it was going out of style! Kingston got to hang out with Nana all day and meet all of her friends. He loved it. I loved it. Nana loved it. We all had a good day.
I was so happy to see him when we all met for dinner at Rundown. He gave me the biggest smile and it made my day! Absence really does make the heart grow fonder! I love that little boy! He was a good boy at dinner, eating his sweet potatoes in the high chair like a big boy. After a long day with Nana he was totally pooped and fell right asleep when I put him down when we got home.
And we are both ready to do it all again tomorrow. Gotta love a good Nana.

But it sure is nice to be home. Kingston went to bed at his normal 8:00 hour tonight. We aren't the biggest on schedules, but I am glad to get back to the semi-schedule that we do have.
We are lucky to get to travel with Nigel while he works. It makes his traveling easier for all of us. My job is great in that we get to go along. I still booked 4 caterings while on the road, though! Perfect situation.
Welcome home to us!

I hate to pack for a trip. And it really stinks to pack for a baby, too. SO much crap you have to take with you. I should be packing right now instead of playing on the computer. Oh, well. I guarantee I'll be ready before Nigel is in the morning! I can somehow manage to get myself and the baby ready before him most of the time!
Happy travels to us!

And he is sleeping late this morning which is even better. I'm off to shower and get a few things done before my sweet little bundle of joy looking so cute in his jammies gets up. Love that kid!

I went to Belk and bought him some cute new jammies to get him inspired. They have flying dragons on them. Nothing says sleep like flying dragons, I like to think. I covered him in the crochet blanket his Great Grandmama made him. Does anyone know how old they should be to sleep covered by a blanket? It might be too soon, and I will probably take it off of him before I go to bed.
So wish us luck. If you see me tomorrow and I am really grumpy and tired looking, you'll know it didn't go so well!
