Jed and I made a solo trip up to see Mee-mee. We basked in the opportunity to have some time playing in her living room and vast backyard. Most of the time, he arranged the sheep, sat in her child-sized ladderback chair, put items into a copper kettle, and combined them with some gladware. These "toys" entertained him the whole time. I reveled in just watching and observing him--engaging in baby TV as it is otherwise known. It was really nice for him to have three adults watching him although today he has been an utter pill--maybe we can blame that on the Hurricane.
The one down side of the trip was the loss of his carseat by US AIR. They gave me an infant seat and the poor boy got smushed into it so that I had something to secure him into in case of an accident. They found the seat and were supposed to deliver it that night. We woke-up and found it was still missing. I returned to the airport to find it safely perched in the lost baggage room. When I complained about the use of the infant seat, the woman said "We have lots of toddler seats as well." I have no idea why they didn't offer me one. Poor customer service. They are lucky that nothing bad happened to him en route--and so are we.

Tonight Adelaide was perched sweetly on her bed. She made an oval shape with her mouth and asked me what sound you make with your mouth with an O. I wasn't sure what she meant. I asked her, "You mean the sound O?" No, she said. "A wan." What is that? She then said you make a little funny sound at the end. I then recognized that she meant a "Yawn." I laughed and told her that is the name of that action. She then funnily informed me that Jesus told her that. I was surprised and inquired if He had taught her to yawn. She said, "No, he just taught me what to do when I'm sleepy."
About twice a year we make an annual pilgrimage to Sams Club. Adam has had a membership, courtesy of his father, since college. When we moved to PA, it took us a while to find a Sams Club. But, over the weekend, we decided to make our fall trip. We knew it was time when I came home from work on Wednesday and was immediately sent out to the store for we did not have a shred of toilet paper in the house. Sams Club provides us with all those things you do not want to be caught without: diapers, wipes, Kleenex, and toilet paper. Now Adam truly loves Sams because he also buys cases and cases of canned tomatoes. I kid you not when I say we have at least 80 cans of tomatoes in the basement right now. I have been informed that his cooking theme for fall and winter shall be Italian. Bring on the marinara sauce.
