the best kind of pit-stop
meeting baby Caleb for the FIRST time!!!
isn't that the sweetest little face
Addison was excited to play with Callie again...she was walking this time so she could keep up a little better!
Harrison really enjoyed holding baby Caleb between games with his buddy Josiah
isn't he precious!!! and so contented! such a good baby boy!
Tutu - Katy's mom - was there and it was so fun to be able to spend some time getting to know her a little better. We've really only had the opportunity to say a quick hello in the past so this was a treat for me! I'm SO glad she was able to come and spend some time with the kids and meet little Caleb. i know Katy sure appreciated having her around!
there he is, holding Caleb again. :)
had to make it over to the pool!
Anthony had a business lunch in South Columbia and had taken the suitcases with him. the boys just wore their shorts to swim and Addison borrowed a swimsuit from Callie
Anthony quickly let me know that while holding Caleb was a lot of fun it didn't make him want to have another little one join our family. :)
the next morning, we all insisted that Katy sleep in a little bit. after Callie got dressed i asked her if it would be OK for me to do her hair. i LOVE playing with and styling little girl's hair! :) she was so sweet and agreed. here she is showing off her hair do. after we were done she said "no touch." :) so cute! love this little girl! and i can't wait for Addison to get some more hair!
Oh how we enjoyed being able to stop in on the Schrodt's again! I felt sort of bad when I asked Katy if we could put it on the calendar a month before Caleb arrived but she insisted that we could "pop" in. We tried to not be a burden and made sure we took care of dinner. I love, love, love holding these babies when they are little and knowing that we would practically be driving by their house on our way to Hilton Head...I just could not pass that up!
It was wonderful holding that precious baby boy and loving on him for about 24 hours. That's pretty much how long we stayed. We got there around 10:30am on Thursday and left at 12:00pm on Friday for our vacation. It was perfect! The boys just picked up where they left off which I love and Addison and Callie were a little bit more like playmates this time because Addison is walking and "playing" more. Anthony was able to get a little work in while David was at work and Karen, Katy & I just got to chat and enjoy that sweet baby boy! After dinner and all the kids were in bed, we were able to just sit and chat some more. Can you tell I loved every single minute of it? Time with my sweet friend and her precious baby boy...it was the best kind of pit-stop!
