So so sorry about the delay in posts... hopefully, even though I'm back in Indy, things will still remain exciting and I can continue to get pictures of Amish people and Natey doing funny things.
Kyle's still in Chicago and we're hoping and praying for job news soon. Thanks for all the prayers. I know they are heard.
So I'm a single parent during the week when Kyle is gone. Hopefully he can come home this weekend but we're not sure.
At first I was a teeny bit excited about having some time to myself, taking Natey places and doing my own thing. That lasted about two days. Now I'm tired. I feel bad for Nathan because I know he's sick of me and really, I'm not much fun. So I'm trying to do fun things with him in the evening, like a trip to the park or the library. Last night we had dinner with Kris, and even that was enough for him to be entertained. A few of his latest "Natey-isms:"
~Kris was asking him about the baby. She goes, "So will the baby stay in there forever?" Natey goes, "No... it will come out... at some point."
~We were talking in the car about something funny. He loves to talk about things that happened in the past, and is always saying, "Mom... you member..." (you remember). He asked me about something I remembered, and he goes, "You member that? That was ha-WARE-ee-is."
~We were driving home from the lake and he goes, "You did an excellent job, Momma." I said, doing what Natey? "Driving us home." Kyle laughed and said, "I think that's the only time she's ever heard that!!" (so I'm not a great driver... cut me some slack... I'm good at other things)
~Loves to think of new ideas. Goes, "HEY MOM... guess what... I got the BEST... great idea..." and will follow it with something. Goes, "I got the BEST great idea.. how bout... we go home, put on our jammies, get cozy, and make cookies."
~Can tell you how to get to the lake: "Go to that stinky street (Hazel Dell), go around those turney things, (roundabouts) and you're at the lake." (Noblesville)
~Loves to play school and will give me jobs to do. When I've completed them to his satisfaction, he'll go, "Good job, Momma. Now..." and take me to the next task...
In Baby Bartlett #2 news, all looks well. Nathan went with me to the doctor (mistake) and said, "Why my momma gotta pee in a cup?" and then asked, "Why does the baby look like a snowman?" So, at the suggestion of my aunt Patty, maybe we'll name him Frosty....
