Another Nashville Visit
Last weekend I went to Nashville for Debra’s birthday! I even took Friday (her actual birthday) off and drove up early. The extra time made a huge difference – I usually get there late after a day of work on Friday, or go up on Saturday morning. We were able to do a lot, considering she has an almost-three-week-old baby!
We got much needed pedicures…
…painted cats at The Wine & Easel (not using the recommended colors – we’re rebels!!)…
…went to the Cheesecake Factory (always a special occasion in itself)…
…and of course, got in plenty of Niecy time!
It had been months since Debra and I had any Hermanas Only time, so I’m especially thankful to Lance for inviting me and arranging for everything!
Niecy is a pretty well-behaved baby, and Debra and Lance are still taking everything in stride. I loved having some time with this little family without the rest of our family there. Lance handed Niecy and a bottle off to me within minutes of my arrival. :) I’m so happy to help take care of her, learn stuff, and exercise my dormant maternal instincts. I haven’t interacted regularly with a baby since my brother was one, and my inexperience makes me nervous and self-conscious with other people’s babies. So it’s wonderful to be a new aunt with nothing to prove!
