I got a wonderful call last night from my sister's husband, Joe. They wanted to take me up on my always-open offer to watch their son while they attend the temple. Since I live two blocks away from the Mesa Temple, it is perfect for them to be gone for a few hours to enjoy some spiritual uplifting. It's also perfect for Aunt Micah to watch her favorite local nephew!
How dare he show up asleep! Didn't he know of the big plans I had for us today? Evan slept for an hour then finally decided to join the party. When I went to get him out of his seat, I said, "Hi boyfriend!" He smiled and ducked his head to the side as a shy, perfect little man. He was so well-behaved. He munched down on the bottle his mama left for him but still acted hungry. When T'liese called to see how everything was going, I informed her of his hunger. They decided to come give him a snack before they left again for some Mexican food. After they drove away for the second time, I rocked Evan to sleep. I am starting to figure out what my sister means when she says she misses him when he sleeps! What a sweet little boy. He smells and tastes as good as he looks!
Thanks, Joe, T'liese, and Evan. Any time! Really!
