+1


Caleb and I attended my cousin's wedding two weekends ago and took our little guy as our plus one.

Could my dates get any cuter?!
And guess who gets all flirty when he puts on a tie.

This guy.






The wedding was held at the historic Spring Haven Mansion north of Nashville.

Friends and Family traveled from all over the country to share in this special day.

The Matrons of Honor

The only thing more beautiful than the weather was the bride.



The ceremony was extra special for us since the officiant was the same person who performed our ceremony almost 6 years ago.





 Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Golding!



Let's get the party started..




The Best Man (with the best mustache!)
  

Remy surprised us all with his dancing skills.


Caleb partied his head off! 
We didn't even have to pay for the babysitting!
And guess who was the last to leave the party?

Why did the chicken cross the road?


We may never know, although there are a lot of versions out there.

Here's Remy's version:

It's a little lengthy, but the punchline is great.

And for the Grandparents, those who have some time to kill and a certain Mom who is returning to work and may need it, I have posted additional videos here.

3 Months


Shhh.

Did you hear that?

That was the sound of 3 months flying by.

At warp speed.

But before we get to the big photo reveal, here's a list of 3 month stats.

1. He is 13.2 pounds. 
2. He is now sleeping in his crib almost exclusively....
3.  ....without being swaddled....
4.  ....for almost 8 hours straight!
5. He has found his thumb and is able to pacify himself to fall asleep. (Can you hear those Angels singing?)
6. He is very alert and has started looking up.
7. He can blow raspberries.
8. He smiles a lot and laughs without making a sound. (So precious!)
9. He is able to grasp and hold on to his toys (and hair).
10. We couldn't be more in love. 


 

And here are the side by sides.



Is it just me or does he actually look smaller?

The Rehearsal


This is a big week for us.

Not only is it the last week of my maternity leave (which means I need to get moving on my to do list I've been compiling) but it is also our dress rehearsal for day care.

Cue the emotional breakdown tears.


Here's what I was expecting this morning when I dropped him off. Luckily, Remy didn't shed a tear. I can't say the same for myself.
When I finally realized that going back to work was unavoidable (meaning we did not win the lottery), I decided that I would ease our family back into the real world one baby step at a time. My plan? To build up Remy's time at the day care over the course of this week. Hopefully this will help him (and when I say him I mean me) transition into his new routine. Cause let's face it, I'm totally panicking a little nervous about going through Remy withdrawals. 

So I have a bit of time to kill this week. I'll be staying busy so I'm not watching the clock and counting the minutes (only 87 more until I pick him up today!) Who knows, I may even make several appearances here.

Until then, I'll most likely be looking through these.

Remy loves his swing!

One of my favorite things is the Remy stretch. 

Look what we caught in our tub! 

He looks all grown up in this shot. What happened to my baby boy?!

Hanging out with Dad. 

Sniff.

Somebody get me a tissue.
