This week was your dad's cousin's wedding and boy were you a social butterfly. The festivities began with a Bridesmaid lunch and you were the only male invited. Lucky guy. You would think that at a lunch of over a dozen ladies you would take the opportunity to get ample amounts of loving but you slept in my arms through the entire event.
The next fun event was the rehearsal dinner. Your grandparents hosted a BBQ dinner at their house for the bridal party and family. Everyone enjoyed themselves and your dad even gave a speech. It was your first time wearing jeans and shoes. You were adorable. I, like everyone else, was obsessed with your outfit. You got to be held by more of your dad's cousins and throughly enjoyed the attention. We left the party around 8:30 to be sure to tuck you into bed by your current 9pm bedtime.
You were the perfect baby during the ceremony. You didn't cry at all and had a huge smile on your face the whole time. You crashed hard during the reception while your grandma was holding you. When you woke up, you almost owed your grandma a new dress and we had to have an emergency diaper change. After you made your rounds, we snuck out around 8:30pm to get you in your crib around 9pm again. I keep attempting to put you down earlier but then you wake up twice a night. Eventually we would like to put you down around 7:30pm with only one middle of the night feed (& someday you will sleep all the way through). I can't complain because I am rather rested for the mom of a newborn.
Sunday was your first lake day! Of course you wore your new sunglasses as well as swim trucks and a rash guard. You remained sleeping in your carseat for the first part of the boat ride. Once you woke you were a very happy baby. I think you enjoyed the noise from the motors. We picked up your Aunt April and Uncle Kyle at their new house and continued to ride around. Your dad parked the boat at their house and we grilled out with friends. You were one happy baby rocking in their rocking chairs.
The skies darkened and we sent your dad across the lake to pick us up in his truck. Good thing because it began to pour!
We are both so grateful that you are so flexible and enjoy being around so many people.
I love you Harper. I always will.
