This past weekend we made our first long trip with Britt. I got the house together and packed up on Friday afternoon, and after finally getting Britt to sleep about midnight I put him in the carseat to sleep. We got on the road about 3:30 am on Saturday and had an uneventful drive up to Bonifay, Florida. We were able to get the singing cds from Jim and Kelly from the FFM, and we listened to them and talked the whole way there.
We met up with Grandmother and Granddaddy when we got there. Grandmother cuddled him alot and was even able to feed him a bottle. Granddaddy held him a bit more, now that he holds his head up so much better. They were especially tickled to see how much Britt had grown.
Everyone enjoyed him, as he flirted and smiled at everyone. For the most part he was quiet during church. He has a new habit. I can talk to him and then when I stop he coos back. We can carry on a little conversation this way, I just don't have a clue what he is saying. Well, during the second sermon the preacher would make a point and then pause, and you could hear Britt coo really quietly. Then he would make another point and pause, and Britt would coo again. This went on a little while, and then the preacher started getting excited, and loudly made a point. Britt answered with an equally loud coo. I leaned over and asked Gary, "Do you reckon that was an 'Amen'?"
Saturday night we were able to all visit together over at Bro. J.C. Stanaland's house. We had a good time singing and talking. All in all, it was a great weekend.
