As of Saturday, September 10, 2011, our baby boy has three uncles, not just two!! Welcome to the family, Jonathan! 🙂
Ian’s little sister, Jennifer, married the love of her life this weekend in Charleston, South Carolina. We enjoyed spending the long weekend celebrating and spending time with our families. We stayed with Ian’s whole family, as well as my parents, in the FUNKIEST beach house (more like MANSION) I have ever seen- Casa Margarita! So much fun.
My mom and I went shopping for a dress that would cover my baby bump for the wedding on Monday (FIVE DAYS BEFORE THE WEDDING). I found the perfect, purple satin dress that zipped up nice and easy and I couldn’t WAIT to wear it Saturday. As I put the dress on Saturday afternoon, I quickly realized we had passed the “nice and easy zip” stage, and moved right into the “OH MY GOD, I HOPE THIS DAMN THING WILL ZIP” stage. Fortunately, with a lot of tugging, squeezing, and praying- Mom got me zipped up. I can’t believe he grew so much, so fast– five days?!! As the evening progressed- I heard a lot of comments like- “JEEZ- Every time I look at you, you look bigger!!” I guess Baby had a growth spurt?? Or–it may have had something to do with the fact that within the first ten minutes of the pre-reception, I was on a first name basis with the waiter passing the Hors d’oeuvres. We made a deal that I would be his first and last stop each way out of the kitchen. 🙂
We also got to play with a one month old little boy at the wedding. The last time we hung out with his mommy and daddy was at Jenn’s wedding shower, and he was still in his momma’s belly. It blew my mind that our son would be that age in ONLY THREE MONTHS!! Wow.
Ian’s wonderful aunts already spoiled Baby rotten and he isn’t even born yet! 🙂 We had a wonderful surprise waiting on our bed after the rehearsal dinner- A gorgeous diaper bag stuffed FULL of the best baby goodies ever! Diapers, wipes, burp clothes, onesies, toys, outfits, EVEN BABY SUNGLASSES!! Thank you so much, Roxanne, Patti, Nancy, and Wanda!! Then the next day, Ian’s cousin, Gina, gave us three more baby outfits that she got for him. SOO DARN CUTE. I cannot wait to put them on him. I will soon be posting lots of pictures of Baby in all his new clothes. 🙂 Y’all are the best. THANK YOU. This is one lucky baby to have all these wonderful people in his life who already love him so much.
All in all– fantastic weekend with fabulous people. And we couldn’t be happier for Aunt Jenn and Uncle Jon.
