baby nieces and baby goats...or, i don't have any clue what to call this post.

This past week, Ty's brother and sister-in-law came to town to go to the county fair.
We have one of the largest county fairs in the country, so I guess its a big deal.
I just like the food.
Anyway, these are some of the happenings while the fam was here:

Ty and I both got some much loved cuddle time with baby Lydia.
She even fell asleep in my arms that night, which I have to say...has NEVER happened to me before.
I might be good with kids, but I've never been great with babies, so I think this was {maybe?} a step in the right direction.

To illustrate my point about not being that great with babies:
My only job here was to watch her while my sister-in-law got her bottle ready.
As I'm sitting on the floor taking pictures of her, she proceeds to fall over face first into the couch cushion...
I quickly put her back upright while laughing to myself...but not before both my sister-in-law AND mother-in-law saw.
Have I ever mentioned that I'm NOT ready to be a mother yet?

Now THIS cutie I could probably keep upright.
When we headed to the fair the next day, I was totally smitten with this little guy.
I wanted to buy him and take him home.
Hubby said no.
He must have figured out I'm not good with babies.

Then I had a convo with a horse.
Now, this is the first horse I've even come CLOSE to since my adventure with one on our honeymoon 2 years ago.
Maybe I'll tell that story sometime...maybe I won't.
I'll just say that it was traumatic.
And that now I have a fear of horses.
They're kind of...really big.
And strange looking, if you think about it.
And I haven't wanted to get close to one since.

And in the spirit of facing fears, I braved a couple fair rides for the first time since I was probably 16.
I gotta be a cool aunt, ya know?
I won't mention that my palms were sweaty, my heart was racing, and I felt like I was going to toss my cookies before the rides even took off.
This little guy was happy, and I guess that's all that really mattered.

Until next time,
xoxo, wife.
