I’m on vacation!

My good friend is treating me and two other friends to five days in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has a gorgeous adobe vacation home with perfect southwestern decor (heavy rustic wood furniture, turquoise, iron…swoon!). We are planning on sightseeing, hiking, (window) shopping, eating good food, and relaxing. Perfect.

I’m trying to relax, to have a great time, and I am. But I miss my family terribly already. I won’t see Grayson again until Thursday morning, and right now that seems like an eternity away. I miss him so much and it feels like a piece of me is missing. The girls I am with keep telling me he’s going to be fine, that he’s in good hands. I know that. Ryan, my mom and Denise will keep him safe, happy and healthy. It’s just hard on me to be without him.

It took me hours and hours to get everything organized for G to be away from him (and him being in 3 different houses) for 5 days. The food was by far the hardest. Oh, where are the days when he just took bottles and that was it? That was SO much easier. And making it harder is we’ve had a really rough few days with his eating- he just doesn’t want to keep anything down. I’m really, really worried about his eating/vomiting and it’s making it hard to keep my mind off it.

I’m glad G is getting time with people other than me. Ryan has been sweet to send me lots of pictures and texts- right now he’s apparently sitting in church with his Dear singing along with the hymns. That makes me smile. And Ryan swears he’s said “Mama” several times today. Hmmm…so his mama goes out of town and he decides to start talking? Does this mean he misses me?

So I’m off to enjoy this gorgeous, COLD (cold weather? what’s that?) New Mexico morning. Hopefully I’ll have some great pictures to share in the next few days!
