Daddy surprised us and came to the cabin for dinner!

Connor's Baptism at 10 weeks old!

Hello Everyone!
We hope you are all doing well! We have had a busy and exciting week! On 10/24 my parents arrived for a week in the mountains! Connor was also baptized on 10/25! He is doing great! He's been sleeping 8 -9 hours a night, without any middle of the night feedings! He is babbling and smiling more than ever and we could not possibly feel more blessed! Here are some pictures from this week!
This is Connor on 10/21 at the 10 week mark!

When my parents arrived on 10/24, Diablo enjoyed a good brushing from Grandpa!

Connor and his beloved Grandma!

I like to call this one..."Ah...Grandma" ;)

Connor and his Mimi!

Watching the Florida game with his Grandma!

Later that night...Grandma, Grandpa, and Mimi understood what we meant about Connor's affinity for Garth Brooks! This is us, singing along with Garth Brooks, to calm Connor!

This is the cake that Mimi (Suz) stayed up all night making for Connor's baptism!
