So, made it to my sister's house and then Heidi wanted to eat again, so I fed her and then we packed up the car. We were in the car for about 10 minutes when Heidi started crying; I think because we stopped to get gas. We got back on the road and Heidi started crying again - this time for a dirty diaper. I think she was fine for a little bit and we made it about an hour down the road when we stopped to eat. Heidi wanted to eat too, so I fed her in Zaxby's. I have become a pro at public nursing. Vicki went to change Georgia before we left and Georgia peed on Vicki. So, now we smell like puke and pee and I look like trash. Oh, my bra straps were hanging out of my tank top as well...just to add to the "look". We were about 20 minutes away from the destination and Heidi was hungry again. She cried, no she screamed, the rest of the way. We made it to the hotel and my parents came down to meet us as I rushed up to the room to feed the chunkster.
That night Stevie (my cousin and Parker's sister) called to see if she could come and visit. Stevie was also bringing her fiance Chris as well. How wonderful to meet someone for the first time while smelling and looking like poo? Oh well, we did. Heidi did very well her first night in a hotel. It was a wedding miracle! I got 4 hours and 3 hours of consecutive sleep! I forgot how amazing that felt. We woke up and went to Waffle House for breakfast and then to the mall to shop for a dress. I packed a dress for the wedding, but after thinking about it the dress was not going to work too well for nursing. So, we headed to the mall and it was a successful trip for my mom, sister, and myself. Next we headed back to the hotel and began to get ready for the wedding. Showers and baths for the 5 of us. I did take a shower that morning also in case you were wondering.
Stevie & Me
We woke up Sunday morning and went to a brunch where we were able to hang out with family again. It is always so hard to fit in socializing time during weddings, so it was great they had a brunch. We left the brunch and Heidi was not too excited to be back in the carseat again or in the car. I think we stopped to feed her once and then they girls were so good on the way home! I fed Heidi at my sister's house, then we went on to our house. Once there Heidi passed out on the couch - I guess we were both exhausted and overstimulated. Hopefully this will prepare us to make the trip again in January for Stevie's wedding!
