First, I warned you all about the onslaught of pictures coming today! :)
Second, we had a few changes to our original Easter weekend plan. Saturday morning, my dad got sick with a horrific stomach bug (poor Dad!), and so since he was the one who was going to baptize my brother, Caleb, we decided it would have to be postponed. So, for the first time since I can remember, we stayed home from church on Easter Sunday.
But, it ended up being just fine. Our friends from Colorado Springs - Walt and Barb Kelly, their son-in-law and daughter, Greg and Jen Fulkerson and other daughter-in-law Becca Kelly (her husband, Brian, had to work and couldn't come this weekend) - came in on Friday and we all just hung out and relaxed this weekend. We FINALLY got to meet Jen and Greg's adorable son, Noah, who turned three months old yesterday.
He is so adorable! It was so fun to hold him and play with him and watch him because I kept thinking, "This is what it's going to be like in a few short months!" Plus, I loved seeing him do his little froggy-style kicks, because I swear I feel those same kicks on a daily basis from our son. :)
I think you can tell who stole all the attention this weekend! What can we say? He was just so cute! :)
They were so sweet and surprised me and Jon with an Easter basket for our baby! It was stuffed with so many fabulous things!! :) I love the froggy pajamas they got him!
This is my mom and one of her best friends, Barb. Really, the Kellys and Fulkersons are more like family than friends!
The pretty mama and her beautiful son!
On Saturday night, Jen, Greg, Jon and me all went out after dinner and after Noah had been put down for some coffee and some much needed Q&A time about life with a newborn. Jon and I felt SO much more prepared after talking with them! It's so overwhelming to think about how life is going to change, but talking to parents who have just done it makes it seem much less scary.
This is me and Jen only a few short months ago! She was 7 months pregnant with Noah and I had just found out I was pregnant. SO crazy that I'm 6 1/2 months now and Noah is 3 months old! We had to take an updated picture:
Ha! :) I love this!
Here is everyone and yes, I see the rabbit ears Caleb is holding behind Jon's head. There's one in every group. :)
So, that was my Easter weekend! We talked, ate, shopped and laughed - and I just loved it! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well - what did you do?
