Hanging out with Baby Pressley

My sister had a conference to go to today and tomorrow in Columbia. So she brought my niece with her and I am getting to keep her for two days. If this would have happened three months ago I would be clueless on how to keep a baby, but since moving to Charlotte I learned how to change a diaper and be a little more natural around kids.

I am figuring out:
1. that you can't do much until it is naptime.
2. you better be good at doing stuff with one hand and a baby on the other hip.
3. that if you didn't have a baby in front of you some of the faces and sounds you make would be pretty embarrassing.
4. that bringing a baby to a new place means lots and lots of bags and hardly any of it is the mom's stuff.
5. being entertained by a toy only lasts for a few seconds.

I think I am well on my way to understanding the babies. Good times.

Hey Ferris. This is Lindsey. You did a great job with Graham while we were at the Furtick's house Saturday helping unpack!! I'm sure you'll thoroughly enjoy having your niece around!

Sounds like you got the essentials down! You are GREAT with kids, my girls adore you!! Ms. Ferris is missed this week-iAudrey asked if we were going to see you at the gym...I told her that you aren't allowed to go to the gym anymore because you and those beams can't get along! I'm gonna start stalking you in a few hours, so you might want to turn your phone off. :) Have a great week!
