Meeting Wyatt

Well as some of you must have noted by now I am the proud Aunt to my darling little nephew Wyatt. Born on June 9th, 2009 at 2:59 he weighed 6 lbs 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. After many many many weeks of waiting I was lucky enough for my parents to buy my a plane ticket to fly to Idaho to meet the little guy. It was an amazing trip. And I am so excited to have a new member of the family clan.

I flew in late on a Wednesday and spent Thursday morning with my mom, drinking coffee and playing with the poodle. I drove up to SV Thursday afternoon and got my first few hours with Wyatt.
Friday I just spent some more time with Nicole and Wyatt, we ventured out a little and Wyatt did great!

On Saturday we headed up north a bit further over beautiful Galena Summit to go boating with Jon and his sister, brother-in-law and twin nieces, and nephew. It was a beautiful day and Wyatt loved his boat ride and being outside in the sun! He also got to spend sometime with his cousins who absolutely loved him!

Sunday, Nicole and I went to breakfast and Wyatt just hung out in his baby bjorn like a trooper. We packed up the cars and then drove down to Boise to spend some time with the parents. Saturday night the parents cooked up some amazing shrimp fettuccine alfredo. I also was able to see on of my best friends, Kim, and we headed out to get some TCBY and then cruised around Boise to check out all the familiar places.

Monday was a day of errands. Although running errands when you have a darling baby and your amazing mom and sister with you really is so much more fun than anything I do on a regular basis in DC! We went to Babys R Us to get some stuff for Wyatt. Nicole found the most adorable sweater and cords outfit for the fall. And then we checked out some of the granite samples my mom is thinking about for the kitchen. After another great dinner of grilled salmon and a legendary bottle of Coastal Cooler I headed out to meet up with Mike, a friend from high school who I used to ski with. We had a really fun evening hitting up some of the bars downtown.

Tuesday came much too soon and I definitely shed some tears saying goodbye to Wyatt and my family. It was a long plane ride back and a hard few days getting back into the grove of things in DC. Wyatt is so special, and living so far away from him is definitely tearing up my heart!

But I had a great trip to Idaho and I can't wait to get back as soon as I possibly can!!
