Friends With Kids

This post is long overdue.  But somehow, the nights slip away from me and blogging doesn't always happen.  Sometimes the dishes are stacked just high enough that I can't put them off until tomorrow.  And sometimes Conor has to do a bit of work in the evenings, so the TV is mine & I can sneak in an episode of Hart of Dixie (or "trash" as it is referred to by Conor...).  And sometimes Liam takes entirely too long to fall asleep; therefore, I am practically asleep by the time I sneak out of his bedroom.  No zombie blogging for me.  But tonight, tonight I sip on my wine and bust out a short little catch-up post:

There is a baby boom happening.  Our friends are bringing little people into the world at a rapid rate these days and we are loving it!  Let the family vacation planning begin!  It is an incredible thing to watch those closest to you go through some of life's most incredible moments.  I can remember when our friends (the Hansons in San Diego) Facetimed with us when Liam was only 3 months old & shared the surprising news that they were expecting!!!  Both Conor & I hip-hip-hoorayed so loud that Liam instantly burst into tears!  That's true excitement!

A couple weeks ago, the Hanson family took a little trip to visit us here in Utah!  The weather was absolutely terrible, but it didn't matter because the drinks were flowing, toys were flying, & babies were playing.  Instead of bar hopping & "icing" one another (yeah...we did that in our younger years...), we had a round of drinks in the playroom, took naps,  & stuffed our faces just like the little ones!  It was glorious!



I look forward to many more weekends like these as well as hopefully some trips to Disneyland & Hawaii, all with our closest friends & their broods!  It is such a sweet time to be settling in & raising babies!
