Well, we are back from our trip out to visit my family. It was a great time and I was so happy on how well Joseph did on the trip. We ended up leaving Thursday night so he could sleep in the car on the way there. This was both good and bad, good because he slept like a dream and bad because Shawn and I were so tired ourselves.
Friday I took the little one to see my mom at her school. She was bursting at the seams, she was so proud and excited to show him off to her staff. I am glad that we were able to do that for her.
Saturday was the party, what a great time! It was so wonderful to celebrate Joseph and welcome him to the family. My only regret was that I didn’t get to spend enough time talking to everyone. We are so bless to have so many wonderful family and friends. We also incorporated a photo session for the baby into the day. My dear friend Angi is an amazing photographer and she started her own company, Three Oranges Photography. I’ll be doing a full post on this once we get the proofs from her. But let me say now that it was AMAZING!
The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and enjoying ourselves with the family. We even took Joe for his first swim in my parents pool! He was so calm and content as Shawn carried him around in the water. It makes me even more excited to bring him to the pool this year.
All in all, it was a great weekend. I hope that the rest of the summer is just as perfect.
