This Mother's Day weekend started out with a Saturday morning at the Beach.
It was warm, sunny, not too crouded and full of fun!
Kim and Jared met us. Noah and Jared had a blast together running up and down the berm and playing in the sand with the sand toys (thanks Uncle Bob for the toys!). It was wonderful because it allowed us moms to sit, relax and just watch.
Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Stephen came down.
They brought lots of energy and Banana Cabana! Yummy!
We all clap, even though we all know Noah has no clue what we are trying to explain to him. He thinks everyone from Grandpa McCoy to Daddy to Mommy and probably everyone else...has a baby in their belly.
But for now he understands that Hunter is a baby. He knows how to say her name, his own name, and he knows how to SAY "NICE" but not always how to BE gentle, which is what we are trying to teach him when we say "BE NICE"
Our family is growing so fast, a new generation is here!
My niece Hunter is 5 days old. She is perfect in every way.
You may be wondering why there are no photos of Noah and Hunter together. There are no children allowed in the hospital with the newborns unless they are siblings. And the last two days , sadly, Noah was running a little fever. Nothing too bad, and no other symptoms of anything, but why chance it with a newborn! So, though Noah has been running around the yard all day helping daddy rake leaves and weed (screaming and making a mess), he hasn't had an opportunity to cuddle with his cousin.
You better believe I'll have photos of them together in no time though!
