A Weekend of Babies

I can't believe it's already Wednesday! I wanted to get this post up Sunday night...Ha! Better late than never. I probably should have done Emma Kate's 12 month update already as is quickly nearing a 13 month update instead.

Anyway the weekend started with a quiet Saturday morning. Dominic had his first Invitational with Track so he was gone all day. He got 1st place in one of his Heats! By the way, if anyone wants to see him in his Track suit, please post far, he is not letting me get a picture for my blog :(
Jeff had to go in to work very early Sat morning for a couple of hours to get some guys started on a project so he took Connor to work with him. Connor was very excited about going to see all of Daddy's trains! Overall, it was a great "Family Day," as Connor would call it (minus 1.)

Then came Sunday!!! Jeff was gone all day...but I wasn't too worried about it because it was the day that little Anna Banana was going to be baptized! Anna is the daughter of my practically-life-long-friend-Rose. I met Rose in is hard to believe that we are having daughters of our own! I got to meet Anna for the first time last week. What a sweetie! I can't get enough of that little girl!
After church I ran over to help Heidi with a little of the set-up for the luncheon that was to follow the baptism. That woman knows how to put on a "shindig!"
I ran home, gathered the kids, and took off to brave a church gathering with all 3 of my kids by myself. OK Dom is self-sufficient...but still. Thank God Connor found a new sit with during the ceremony. Connor is still asking for a playdate with Matt. I tried to explain to him that we only have playdates with kids...Matt is a grown man.

Here is the sweet little Angel...Anna that is!

Notice the black spot that has arrived in all of my pictures...I need to start a fundraiser for the new camera that I am trying to convince my hubby that I need! Yes, I tried to wipe off my lense...not the answer :(

The flowers and the cupcakes...always my favorite parts of a party!!

OK...but there wasn't any wine!

This new Little Man was the other highlight of my day! I finally got to meet Baby G, born in February to another long time friend of mine. We snuggled and talked about life for a little while;)

...that is...until Emma Kate got jealous.

I cannot say how much joy it brings me to witness my closest friends having and raising babies of their own. Back when Dominic was a baby, I had no friends who were moms to share all of the joys and pitfalls of motherhood was very isolating in many ways. It is such an amazing gift to have other women, whom I love so much, to share this time of my life with. I also thank God every day that these babies are healthy and loved so much.

Although it was a really great day, I was super exhausted...time change and all. So I got Connor to make dinner for us! He had a great time and was very proud of the pizza he made.

P.S. I think I am having a harder time adjusting to this time change than the kids are!


  1. This is even funnier to me because Matt keep asking for a play date with Connor too... :)

  2. Love the pictures of Anna and Roseanne!

    P.S. Track suit, track suit...!!! :)

  3. Those are some adorable little babies!!

  4. I am so lucky to have a veteran mom like you to bring all of my baby raising questions to!
