The Most Fabulous Sister in the World

My sister asked me last week what my plans were for Friday and Saturday. Mr. Howard actually had to work and normally my mom watches him on Fridays, but she was in Arizona for her little sister's high school graduation, so I was going to be home alone with him. So my sister offered to come help. Our neighbor watched him in the morning while I went to an NST appointment and my sister watched him the rest of the time until I got home.

She SOOOO VERY GRACIOUSLY offered to stay with me until the evening on Friday to help and then took him back to her apartment to spend the night so that Mr. Howard and I could have a night to ourselves. On Saturday she took him to a friend's 3 year olds birthday party and didn't bring him home until about 3pm.

About a year ago, it would have been pretty easy for her to pick him up and take him home with her, but this new two-year-old stage is hard. He has an opinion, likes to shout no, will throw fits, and even hit and throw things (of course there are a million wonderful things about this stage too...like the fact that he walks over to me and asks to kiss the babies, lifts up my shirt and gives them a big smackaroo...he cracks himself up over things he thinks are funny...he gets so excited when you take him to do simple things and REALLY appreciates everything - airplanes, lawnmowers, cars, smiles, parks, doggies...). So, it is no small undertaking to agree to help me with Connor for two whole days and it CERTAINLY does not go unnoticed.

I am so lucky to have a sister and friend like Katie in my life and can't imagine a better Aunt for Connor. What a lucky family we are!

Here are some of the photos she took of him during their stay...

Awww...it was my pleasure! He was alot of fun. It was fun showing him off at the birthday party too! =) I was sad for a little while because I was thinking that it might be our last sleepover since the twins are on their way and I don't have room for 3 little ones. But then I was thinking, hey I can still take him when the twins are around. =) Love you guys!
