Again I post when I'm not really up to. Shame.

So here's my big reveal. My really good friend from back in NY was getting married. Originally my BFF was going to fly with me so I could fly for free, but that wasn't gonna work out. Of course Katie had to get married on Memorial Day weekend. So I faced the fats and gave up on getting back to NY. But how could I miss her wedding? This is the girl who never dated. Was always the 'tom-boy', and whom we never thought would marry. How could I miss this? So I searched for tickets and called my daddy. I suckered him into helping me purchase a ticket and started making plans. I brought the baby with me because I wanted to show him off to my parents. And well, who would take both of my kids on a holiday weekend? ;o)
The big deal of the trip was no one knew I was coming. Just my parents and my brothers. I didn't tell any of my friends because I thought it would be fun to surprise them. In my head I pictures walking in on them while they were getting ready and everyone freaking out and screaming and jumping up and down. As I thought about it I realized that I wasn't that important to anyone and I should get a little more of a reality check. So then I started thinking that it would be more of- 'oh hey, Rachel. Cool. Anyway....'. So as I made the final plans that morning as to what was going to happen, I walked in on them and they were soooo excited! They did their little excited yells and it was a blast. I was so glad that I was able to make it to such a beautiful day.
So if you know me at all, you know that I am a take charge kind of girl. Where ever I am, I always tend to take over things. In a good way. (I hope) So that is what I did. I got involved and took pictures, helped get people here and there. Ran for flowers, Starbucks and wedding things. It was awesome. I was able to spend time with all of my great friends and watch a sweet wedding between 2 awesome people.
I did get to spend some great time with my family too. We hung out and played games and talked. I was thrilled to share my baby with all of the. Who would have thought that big uncle Jesse could love a baby so much! My parents were enamored too. One thing that did suck though, was Monday L got sick. He was an angel for 3 days and wham, coughing wheezing, fussy, tummy pain. Sad to think that I go to the pediatrician in NY more than some that live there. They're going to have a file on us filled! They are great though and I am thankful for their taking me on when I am in town.
We made it home after a LONG day of traveling with a fussy baby and forgetting my cell phone in moms car. I was freaking out, but as today has gone by I am realizing that I can live without my phone. (I took my hubby's, BTW)

Now as for the awesome DR's appt last week....I should have written when it was fresh because my brain doesn't last that long anymore. To say that we blew him mind is pretty on spot. We went and saw the physiotherapist. A baby rehab dr. He had read L's file and thought what he'd be seeing was someone other than my kid. Lucas has grown and developed so much lately that he was pretty surprised. When we talked about my pregnancy his face was pretty shocked. When I told him about his birth, he was pretty shocked. And when I told him that the hearing and vision screenings were almost normal, he was SHOCKED! I loved it. He was a great dr and we'll be seeing him in about 3 months. We'll discuss crawling and stuff and baby gates, etc.

So that is it for now. Again, no pictures. I'm too lazy to get up and find my camera. LOL.

Oh and one more thing, we are officially house hunting!!! We met with an agent today and saw a few places. Its soooo exciting. I can't believe that we might be in our own place soon. Oh and House Hunters actually called me back about my application last week. Wouldn't that be cool? I could be on tv.

Ok, done.
