Lucy & Elyse

Grass Fire 2012 wasn't the only thing that happened on Friday.  Elyse got to spend her first full day @ Mamaw & Pappy's house.  This is one of the things I'm so excited about with my in-laws living 30 minutes away from us...they get to spend tons more time with Elyse & another free babysitter for us!  ha! 

Hubby's mom came and picked Elyse up on Friday morning & they headed out.  I'm not gonna lie, I was a little bit nervous as to how Elyse would act being in a new place for an entire day.  Of course my concerns were completely unfounded & the day went just as it would have gone if she had been with my mom or even with me. 

Well...except for one minor incident.  Apparently my mother-in-law was a little hesitant to even share what happened, but I'm oh so glad she did...because the story is too precious to forget! 

My MIL headed downstairs around 9:30 to put Elyse to bed for her morning nap and she was joined by her puppy Lucy.  Lucy is a rambunctious yellow labradoodle who I can already tell is going to love Elyse to pieces.  My MIL left the room and thought Lucy followed quickly behind, but apparently she decided to wanted to nap with Elyse.  Thinking nothing of it, my MIL went upstairs, turned on the baby monitor and went back to work unpacking. 

After quite awhile, my FIL could still hear Elyse babbling & talking so he decided to just go down and check on her.  What he found still cracks me up as I think about it.  Apparently Lucy decided to take "napping with Elyse" to an entirely new level.  Because laying in the crib with Elyse was Lucy...both of them perfectly content, Elyse almost asleep.  Of course Lucy was promptly removed from the crib & Elyse went right to sleep. 

When I asked my in-laws if they managed to snap a picture, I was quickly informed that picture-taking was not really on their minds as they found their labradoodle sharing a crib with their youngest grand-baby!  ha! 

It never ceases to amaze me how God knows exactly what he's doing & how he knows exactly where we need to be at each moment. 

On Friday, my parents' were out of town for a business meeting which meant that we had to figure out what to do with Elyse for the day.  A few weeks ago, our answer would have been to bring her here to the office and she would have spent the day playing & napping alongside us.  However, with Hubby's parents being in town now...Elyse went to Mamaw & Pappy's for her first full day with them.  She wasn't here at the office.  We didn't have to worry about her as we tried to figure out what was going on with the fire.  She was safe & sound with Mamaw, Pappy, and of course, Lucy.
