(eating yogurt with Uncle Taylor)
I think this day, by far, was the best. Mainly because when we woke up we knew that we would be seeing our little munchkin later that day.
We woke up around 6:30, showered, and treated ourselves to the yummy breakfast that the C'Monn Inn provided. I think we were on the road around 7:30. The roads were good and the mountain passes were behind us so by the time we got to Billings we decided to ditch the car dollie and drive the rest of the way separate. I was so glad we did! From Glendive to our destination the wind was very strong and pulling the car would have been really hard to do.
Mike's Mom had Logan for the weekend so we drove to our little hometown to pick him up. We had prepared ourselves for seeing him and knew that he might not have a great reaction to us. We had been told that he might begin to cry or get clingy towards Grandma (a now familiar face).(getting pulled by Grandpa)
The feeling I got when I saw my little boy is indescribable. We walked into Charlene's (Mike's Mom) house and they were sitting at the kitchen table. Logan was having a little snack. He looked up at Mike & me and just stared at us for the longest time. For what seemed like forever, he continued to look at us. The whole time we were both talking to him and saying hi. After about 2 minutes he decided he wanted down from the chair. He got down and walked over to Mike and held his arms up. Mike scooped him up and Logan said "Hi" - my heart melted :) He gave us the biggest grins and from that point on we had our little boy back. For a little while though he was wringing his hands constantly. I think it was because he was either nervous or didn't quite know how to react. Maybe a combination of the two. Either way it was great to have him back!
It had definitely been a hard 3 weeks being away from him but it also gave Logan a chance to get to know everyone, without Mommy and Daddy around. After seeing how he is around all of his "new" family, the move has been worth it!(folding laundry with Uncle Taylor)
*The router has been fixed so I'm back up and running. Well, almost, Mike still has to get our server back up so that my videos and blog title will appear again.
