First Friends

Posted on

There was a string of friends that all had their first babies over the past six months and so this past week was an opportunity for Kaelen to meet them, and for us to meet their babies.  I was amazed to see how big he is compared to some of the other babies, even ones who are significantly older than he is!  We had a wonderful time.

The first event was a wedding, here our friend Van is holding Kaelen and Lincoln (4 months).

Next we took lunch to our friends Adam & Mandi who had their daughter Adalynn at the same birthing center we used.  Here Adalynn is 1 week and 3 days old!  Mandi and I had a great visit sharing our birth stories and catching up on “being mom”!

Both Adalynn & Kaelen were over 9lbs at birth and super long!  She was 23 inches!

Over the weekend Doug and I attended a leadership conference where we saw a few more friends between sessions!  It was great because many of us brought our babies with us.  It was good to catch up with everyone!  (Bear with the cellphone pictures:)

Kaelen’s First Wedding

Posted on

Last night we celebrated with Nick & Brittany!  The wedding took place outside (brrrr) on Britany’s family’s farm.  It was picturesque, beautiful countryside, horses in the field, guests sitting on bales of hay keeping warm with blankets & cider.  To top it off there was a PERFECT sunset right during the ceremony.  Kaelen wore his blue & grey fleece outdoor suit that his Aunt Lauren gave him and he actually slept completely through the ceremony and the beginning of the reception.  I couldn’t have planned it more perfectly!  Here are some pictures from the wedding & reception.

Kaelen in his Wedding Outfit

Tomorrow some good friends of ours Nick & Brittany are getting married!  We are so excited to celebrate with them, and introduce them to Kaelen!  They are expecting a daughter in May so their little girl will grow up with Kaelen! This is the little outfit that we bought at the local kids consignment store.  I think its sooo adorable and that Kaelen looks like  a little old man!
