A Weekend of Firsts

This weekend we had quite a few firsts.  It was Parker's first wedding, my first night away from Parker and Ryan's first Father's Day.  Let's start at the very beginning...

Saturday my cousin got hitched.  There is nothing my family loves more than a good wedding, and this one did not disappoint!  We brought Parker to the ceremony because I didn't want to push it with how long I could be away from him.  And I found him a cute outfit...

He did great during the ceremony although I did shove a bottle in his mouth at the end of it because he was starting to fuss...

After the ceremony my in laws came to pick him up.  He's a super good baby, but I was kind of nervous that he would be out of sorts once he was in a different place.  Well I was wrong.  He behaved perfectly for them an I'm not really sure he missed me at all.

I was also afraid that I wouldn't be able to let loose and would worry about him all night.  I was wrong about that too.  A few glasses of wine later, I was having a great time!  I only had to put that great time on hold to pump twice. (And dump, don't you worry...) #momproblems

I only had a minor break down when we got home and Parker wasn't there.  It may have been partially alcohol induced.  But overall it was nice to have a baby free night.  I haven't been away from Parker for more than about 3 hours since I had Parker so after 5 months I think that time away was definitely good for me.  

Anyways, the next day was Father's Day!  We went out to Ryan's parents pretty early to see his dad and pick up Parker.  

Parker made Ryan a Father's Day Card all by himself and did that awesome wrap job! (A huggies wipe box with a blanket over it, we're pretty fancy like that.)

It has been amazing to me to see the father that Ryan has become.  From the second Parker was born, Ryan was in love with him.  He was so supportive of both of us with everything we had to go through in the days after his birth.  Parker sure loves his daddy and I can't wait to watch them play together in the years to come.
