Go West Young Man

Henry and I headed west this past weekend to visit the Fort. He was anxious to meet more family and friends. We traveled with Nana and that made it fun since Daddy had to stay home and work. It was a fun filled weekend with lots of hugs, kisses and sweet faces.
Henry and I loved being at Marmie’s for his first overnight visit. Marmie was most excited to have her newest baby boy at her house.
Henry was the handsome guest of honor at a sip & see hosted by our dear friend Genia. She threw the party for Marmie’s friends and family to come meet Henry. (sip on cider or tea and see the baby – in case you are wondering)

Marmie loved showing him off and he was such a good boy. He never made a sound the whole 3 hours he was on display. He is near perfect, I must admit!

All of us girls loved seeing all of our old family friends and our family that lives near by. It was such a special day.

Genia really knows how to throw a party and love on babies. Henry was right at home at her house and we love that she is always the hostess with the mostess!

Henry finally got to meet Cousin Sarah “Sa”. She was all smiles as you can see.

Nana and Jane came to see Henry. Nana says Henry must have a magnet that pulls him towards her. She is a wee bit in-love with my boy.

Henry will have to take his first swim in both of their pools this summer. We won’t tell them who was first as to make sure we don’t hurt any feelings! I love these 2 precious ladies.

Emily & Gay made over the little prince as he sat on his throne.

Can you believe I babysat this pretty girl on the left and her mother surely must have babysat me. I feel old and I know this makes Gini feel older. Sorry!

I adore this picture of Henry & Aynn. She is the mother and grandmother of the girls in the above picture.

Brittney said she really wanted Henry to like her. I think he does.

My heart always smiles when I see Elise & Vicki. Henry seemed to take to them real well also.

Our cousins came to town just to see Henry. We were so glad. We were also so glad they did not take him home with them. They were tempted. Clay is the sweet cousin you helped us pray for last Winter/Spring. He is a healthy blessing now…so thankful.

Anna was so glad all the guests went home so she could have her alone time with Henry.
One of the best highlights of our trip was having Henry meet Aunt Janet and Uncle Mike.

Marmie had us come straight to her work when we got to town on Friday.

She loved showing him off to all the people at her office. He was so sweet to all of them and many of the women fell in love with him. He is already a ladies man.

One of the other best highlights was introducing Henry to my BFF, Melissa. (Yes, I have 2 best buds named Melissa…it is a little much to keep straight at times) She has been my best bud since we were little girls. We will share a room at the home.

I loved that Henry and I got to spend a little time with her. She is 7 months pregnant with little Luke. Her 3rd. I can’t wait to have all 4 boys get together. I love that it looks like Henry is looking at Luke (her stomach).

Henry and I missed Daddy so we made sure to pack our Daddy footed pjs and take a picture for him.

Henry slept and played so good in his pack-n-play. I love this face! He looks like my Mama in this picture….so cute. He is such a little Randall but so much like my Mama’s side of the family too. I love how God works that out. (And no, he does not sleep overnight in his Boppy pillow. I know you must think we stick him in this pillow all day because all our pictures have him in it. He loves it and is most happy in it, so it is where he spends a lot of his time, but not all his time.)

BE STILL MY HEART! Henry’s cousins are quite smitten with him. He will be rotten. I love these 5 faces so much that my heart cannot even contain it.

His shirt says “My Aunt Rocks”…and boy, does she ever! Henry love his Juju and she loves him like her own. I love that.

Look at that smile! Marmie with her 5 grandchildren. Her heart overflows with pride. Henry makes the others look so old. I am not sure I like that they are growing so fast! Henry was all grins with his Marmie and his cousins. So fine.

We had to go home after such a fun time. We could have stayed a full week and still not seen all the people we would have loved to see. We were blessed to have the time and see the people were were able to though. Henry was looking at me like, ” Do we really have to go? I sort of like the attention I am getting here.” We got home safely and our little Daddy was MOST glad to see us and love on his boy. It is funny how Henry is the one who gets the first kiss these days. 🙂 I like that though…it is just so funny how things change so fast. We are so blessed.

When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
