leavin...on a jet plane...

Don't know when I'll be back again. Oh wait, yes I do :)

I'm going to Stockholm, Sweden!!! What what! I'm so excited and also completely hormonal and sad to leave my baby (ok, almost 2 yr old). I know I have said before that I love morning snuggles with Zach. We have this whole morning routine that goes like this: go in Zach's room when I hear him banging on his door, he says baba first thing, I change his diaper while I promise a bottle (don't worry folks, I call sippy cups bottles if they have milk in them), we go downstairs and I make his bottle and my coffee, then we get snuggled up on the couch and wake up a bit.

Here's where I get crazy - David got Zach up this morning and made his bottle and then I cried because his bottle was almost finished and I wasn't there for our morning routine. Ha! I'm crazy. Poor David. But I am leaving the country! There's a crazy time difference of 7 hours (I think). And my cell phone won't be working for constant pic updates of my boy. What. Will. I. Do. Well, I think MF and I are sharing a room. Therefore, I will force him to snuggle with me and love on him to fill the void :) hopefully he obliges because 3 year olds aren't that into being snuggled and babied. At least not this one. He has things to do.

Anyway, I'm leaving for 8 days and know nothing about Stockholm. Anyone know any fun facts or things I must do/see there? I really should do some research but there's no time. I've been busily working on Zach's birthday invitations that I realized must be mailed out before I leave town. Ahhh! And I've been working a lot this week and in really really sick with a cold or something. If you know me, you probably know that a stuffy nose is the worst for me. I'd rather be throwing up that have a stuffy nose. Boo hoo. Poor me. Ya ya l know. Oh, and I haven't even thought about packing. It's low 60's in Stockholm which could be freezing or warm. Hard to say until I get there. First priority is invitations, second priority is spending every waking second with Zach, last priority is packing. Oh gosh. Wish me luck.

Here's a little sneak peek into Zach's birthday photo shoot by my friend, Kaleigh! (post about her and the rest of his pictures will be up closer to his big day!)
