Sleepover

This is Carter sleeping this morning with his mommy's teddy bear when she was a little girl.
Read on below.............What started out to be a boring Sunday afternoon, turned into an amusement park at my house. It reminded me of a wilted flower needing to be watered. When you start to sprinkle on the water, it comes back to life. That is just how I felt. I was actually moping around after doing yard work, just feeling empty inside. It is hard to explain it. Then, I get a phone call and it changed everything. Steph, Jeff & boys came by to drop off something and everyone stayed in the car. Carter started crying, wanting to play at my house. It was ok with his parents if he stayed and I could drive him home at bedtime. Noah didn't want to leave sleeping Gray, so it was just Carter and he was a very Happy Carter. We had intentions of taking him home at bedtime, but plans changed and he decided he wanted to spend the night. I also had Abby for a few hours while her parents went out for a nice dinner date. Carter & Abby played so cute together. I laughed so hard at Abby when she went to get a book for Carter to read to her. She backed up and tried to sit on his lap for him to read the book.....
Even though I didn't get a full nights sleep and was kicked a few times during the night, I wouldn't trade it for the world. I woke Carter up and made him scrambled eggs, then took him home before going to work. His mommy said he cried when I left. Like I talked about before, there is an attachment with Carter Bear and his Mimi.....I love it!
I feel like a blooming flower this morning and I didn't even need miracle grow....

He loves his Mimi so much. I missed him, but knew he was having such a good time.

Yes, you are right sis, they are our miracle grow. Soon you will have a new little one around to cheer you up. I'm glad I got to share Abby with you on the web cam last night. Carter was too busy playing legos.

My grandma would take each of us for a week at a time during the summer. It was our special time. I have fond memories of those times and I'm sure Carter will too!
