This is an adorable picture of Harding holding a content Shelby's hand on the way home from the beach last month. That car trip went surprisingly smoothly. Apparently she was just teasing us.
If I had taken a picture of them (particulary Shelby) on the way home from Atlanta at 9, 10, or 11, or even 12 p.m. last night, it would have not looked like the sweet picture of sibling bonding above. You see, our normally good-natured smiley baby turns into a whole different infant when we try to drive somewhere for more than an hour. Trip and I agreed when we were on our 3rd nursing stop (for a normally 3 and 1/2 hour car-ride) that this was Shelby's last long car trip till she gets a bit older. Then we remembered that we have to go back to Duke next month. Oh well. We realize that Shelby is very laid back, sleeps through the night, and almost never fusses, so she should be allowed to "express herself" in the car.
On the upside, we had a really nice stay at Trip's grandparents' house in Decatur on Friday and Saturday. Harding absolutely loved being spoiled by his "Granny" and "Papa Gene". Also, Trip took Harding to the Georgia Tech game yesterday afternoon and they beat Wake Forest in overtime! It was an ugly win, but a win all the same. While the boys watched football, Shelby and I got to visit with my friend Melanie and her very cute baby Henry, and then eat at a really good Mexican restaurant with the Hannah family. It was great to hang out with old friends and I am kicking myself now for not bringing my camera (five-month-old babies are really cute together).
