Home Again

This weekend we took our first road trip with Chelsea. We went down to Utah for our nephew's baby blessing. It was great to see everyone and to see the new little addition to the family. Now when I say little I should explain that our one month old nephew is the same size as our four month old daughter. It was funny to put them side by side and see that Chelsea is just a little bit longer than Him but he is a lot stockier than her and his head is bigger, I then felt quite grateful for my LITTLE girl, I don't mind them small at all. Although we were definitely jealous of all that little guys hair! He is so adorable with his hair all styled!
Chelsea was a great traveler! It was about a 4 hour drive. Chelsea slept for 2 hours then would wake up so we would stop at the nearest rest area to feed, change, and burp her, then it was back into the car seat and she would sleep the remaining two hours. It worked that way both on the way down and on the way back up. I was so nervous about how she would do. But she was great. The other fun part was packing for her. Not that it was hard or anything, I was just worried I'd forget something simple and obvious. Like bringing the formula but forgetting the bottles, or bringing the wet ones but forgetting diapers. That just seems like something I would do. But happily I remembered everything we needed and more... ya, I brought a ton of diapers.
Esau stayed home, my sister Jennifer babysat him for us. I'm sure they had a blast! We got home late Sunday night and while Chris was taking Jennifer back to here place, I was unpacking. First thing I did was take poor Chelsea out of her car seat and put her on the floor to stretch, then I go into the kitchen to unpack some stuff. She was contently cooing for a while, then I hear her give a squeal of delight and giggle a little, so I look over to see what she's so happy about, and this is what I saw...
Esau was licking her ears and then cuddling her. I grabbed the camera that I had just unpacked and was able to get a picture of both! Esau then looked up at me and almost seemed to say "You're not taking her away from me again!" I thought it was the cutest thing ever. Chelsea was very happy to see him too.
