It is always, without fail, so refreshing to see these friends every year. Now, as our families grow, the conversations tend to revolve around parenting philosophies and hardships, but I have no complaints. Just relaxing in the presence of these friends I lived with for three years is energizing. If only we saw them more than once a year! This year, we got to meet new babies and introduce Elliott to everyone!
Elliott's first swim!

Lately, this has been his typical, wild mood:

Ann and Timothy with me and Elliott:
Funny story here: So, Ann and David had their wedding 2 weeks after ours. Last year at the Gerig reunion, I announced my pregnancy- I was 11 weeks along. Two weeks later, we got an email from Ann and David- they were pregnant too! She was only 9 weeks along at the reunion, so hadn't said anything. Our due dates were two weeks apart. As you know, Elliott came a little early- and so did Timothy, exactly 2 weeks after Elliott! Ann told me to let her know when #2 is on the way for us, so she knows to be ready :)
And, my two favorite pictures from the weekend:
Savannah dancing in the bubbles. This just makes me happy.
Four friends, four babies, feeding together:
I'm so thankful to have like-minded mom friends. Without their example and support, this being-a-mom thing would be a lot harder. I like that we're on this journey together.
