Yesterday, Alston spent time with his Mammy (my mom) while I took down the Christmas tree and rearranged the furniture. She works 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. from Wednesday to Wednesday, so she usually doesn’t get to see him for a whole week. Every Wednesday when she gets off, she usually comes by and spends the day with us. Alston sat in his new Bumbo chair that he got from his Poppa Joe and Kelli (my dad and step-mom). He looked like such a big boy! Then he laughed out loud for the first time while he was watching me eat spaghetti noodles. Unfortunately, I wasn’t expecting it and had no video camera to capture the moment, but I’m sure there will be many more to follow. After Patrick got home, we went to see his Grandma (Patrick’s mom- she hasn’t quite decided on a name yet- this one is temporary) and his Poppa Snuff (Patrick’s step-dad). The we went to Heath Reynold’s house and played cards. Ella’s Gran held Alston almost all night, and he slept–well, like a baby.
