Family and Friends

So much to blog about, so little time. First things first - Alex finally has a belly button!! It seems like such a trivial thing to be excited about (although with a new baby, every little thing is adorable, including burping, hiccups, and yes, even bowel movements). But this means he can finally have a real bath instead of the lame spot cleanings we've been doing so far.

Timothy's family came to see us...er...Alex on Friday, so there were many more photo ops. For example, sleeping with Papa is very likely to inspire a Kodak moment...

As does gossiping with Auntie Leah...

Some random pics of other activities this week...

Knowing we would be gone for two weeks and would miss our friends terribly, we invited the Primms over for a cookout Friday night.

Oliver and Alex met for the first time and hit it off right away. In fact, Oliver impressed us all and decided that he would add the word "Alex" to his growing vocabulary. Joy was showing him pictures of Alex on Leah's phone, and when Grammy walked in with the baby, Oliver pointed directly at him and clearly said "Alex". We all applauded and praised his accomplishment, then spent the rest of the night making him do it over and over.

Finally, it was time to say our sad goodbyes, so Timothy and Seth shared a special moment before the Primms headed back home.

Another good time with friends and family. More to come...

The above comment was from me. Sorry about that. My sister and her boyfriend were down this weekend and I didn't even notice that he was still logged in.

That is a hansome boy with as much if not more personality as his mom and dadda combined! We miss you guys and apologize for being sucky friends that didn't bring over any food. We would have this week, but you skipped town. We owe you both dinner at anywhere you choose that serves catfish in Fayetteville on weddington! (just kidding-you choose, we buy) Love you guys!
