We arrived at my sister's house around 11:45. Harvey slept some off and on during the ride up there, but definitely not enough. When we got everything in and settled, he started wailing. So John and I walked him, tried to feed him, tried everything. He finally settled down around 1, only to wake us up again around 4. Lots more screaming, walking, patting, rocking, feeding, and then finally mom got real serious---and Harvey was asleep within minutes. Don't mess with mama's sleep! So we were able to sleep from about 5 until 6:30. Man, that was rough. And while we're on the subject, he had another party on Saturday night/Sunday morning. He was awake from 2am-4am squealing, laughing, gagging himself (another favorite past time), coughing and having a good time. Mom put a stop to that too after 2 hours of listening to that. Such a kill joy. Can't wait to share a room with him again soon!
So back to this weekend. I didn't take too many pictures actually. I was trying to just be in the moment and not be so worried about getting a good shot. Harvey was so dang cute with his cousin Lorelai! Such a sweet age. So here are some pictures from Keeneland.
On our way out of town we stopped to visit with the first family I ever nannied for. I had my sweet girls from the time they were 11 weeks old until they were 3 1/2. They are like family to me, and I was so excited to be able to share my baby with them. Here is little Lexie with Harv.
Alexis LOVED Harvey (or Harley, as she sometimes called him). She went out of her way to try to find some things he would like to play with while he was there (like a 100 piece puzzle), she offered to let him sleep in her bed, even gave him one of her movies. She wanted to hold him and feed him and show him the whole house. And she did! I just love seeing her with him---warms my heart. I just love that family!
A couple random side notes. Harvey's favorite food:Oh yeah, prunes and oatmeal. He's not a big eater, but he ate the entire jar of this all in one sitting. And did it again the next day. Seriously, I have to work to get him to take 1/2 a jar of anything in a day. This is big.
His attire while eating said favorite. He's nothing if not classy.
