Weekend of Firsts

This weekend was the last weekend of hunting season in Alabama. I'm so excited that I won't have to say goodbye to my husband for a while but I know he is sad to see the season go so fast. Anyway, Clark left Friday morning on his quest for his last deer and Rose and I stayed home. We weren't alone though! I am way too new at this motherhood thing to try it by myself.
My wonderful sister and her baby Jay came to spend the night with us Friday night. We had so much fun with the babies. Jay loved playing on Rose's activity mat and Rose loved spending time in her Aunt Dana's arms.My wonderful mother in law, Janet, came to spend the night with us on Satuday. We had so much fun! Jannie kept Rose with her in the guest room and brought her to me when it was time to nurse, so I was very well rested on Sunday! Thank you soooo much Jannie! Rose and I loved spending time with you over the weekend. Sunday morning, Janet gave Rose her FIRST real bath! She loved it! Didn't cry a bit. I just love how a clean baby smells right after a bath. Clark came home in time for lunch on Sunday. We dressed Rose in a pretty dress that was worn by Aunt Gray and Aunt Jody many years ago. She looked adorable! We planned to spend the day (which was also my birthday!) celebrating special events with two of our friends.First, we went to Hollin's 1st birthday party. Rose slept the entire time and gave her Mama and Daddy time to catch up with friends.Hollin looked so cute! I just loved the little froggy outfit. Thanks AnnLee and Michael for including us in the party! Next, we headed to the river for our friends Brad and Wendy's son's bris. Parker and Rose were born 2 days apart! Uncle Joe Miller was so sweet and played lullabies for the babies. It was great to see everyone and we loved seeing Parker again! He is so precious.Aunt Sydnie and Rose Rose and me on my 27th birthday
