Jay’s first Thanksgiving

30 Nov

was crazy insane!  We had to make a speedy unplanned trip to Tulsa to help out family so our holiday started with a bang!  Me and the kids rushed to Tulsa on Thursday and from the get-go Jay was outta whack!  He went from sleeping through the night to waking up from 1:30 until 4.  Then he was ready to play at 4am!  It didn’t get any easier for the poor guy.  He didn’t want to be held really but he didn’t want to sit on the floor either.  Luckily there were a few new kids to keep him company and make him smile (two of his cousins!).  After a few days in OK we made the 5 hr trip to the TX panhandle.  Our Thanksgiving was spent in the car.

Once we got to NaNa’s house in the panhandle things didn’t get better for Jay.  He was still outta whack and had even MORE people to be stressed out over.  He didn’t handle the 10 day trip well at all.  Even with all his stress and lack of sleep he didn’t really show it.  He smiled at everyone and giggled but I knew he just wasn’t the same!  To add to this his bottom two teeth FINALLY came in too!  I love his toothy grin and if he’d ever smile for the camera I’ll post a pic!

We got home last night and Jay knew it!  He slept pretty well until 4-ish.  I went in to console him just to let him know that I was there (figuring he had enough upheaval the past week and a half!).  He was then up and at’em a little after 5.

He had his first taste of mashed potatoes, which I think have totally given him a tummy ache!  And he hopefully learned from his 9 month old twin cousins how to crawl.

It was an eventful 1st Thanksgiving!  And I don’t think we got ONE FRICKIN’ PICTURE!

      It was insane but fun. Sis is just fine, she went on a cruise. It was mom. She was supposed to watch sis’ kids but had to have an unplanned surgery. All is well now! Thanks honey!
