The "baby" - aka my child slept the entire 2.5 hour trip and woke when my mom pulled into the driveway. My sister's family came over, entertained her, read her books, fed her the "precious" ravoli and bananas along with a cookie. My mom found my nephew's old Magna Doodle which she loved and the old Fisher Price Little People schoolhouse with the magnetic letters and chalk.
When I called I could happily hear her chattering away in the background! She was too busy to talk to me.
Prayers are still appreciated :)
Thanks for listening everyone.
