Past Week

Sadly, this week, a friend of mine was laid to rest. I went to a small private school from kindergarten through senior year. One of the guys I graduated with took his life and was buried Wednesday. I made very few "life-long friends" at this school, so I haven't seen or spoken with most in a decade. It was amazing to see how quickly and how many classmates somehow made contact with me and each other to spread the incredibly sad news. There were several classmates at his visitation. There were hundreds of people there and we stood in line for about 45 minutes to see him. Since I have a 5 week old, I did not attend the funeral. I heard that it was packed as well. He was loved by so many people. What a tragedy.

On a lighter note, I went shopping last night and bought some clothes that fit! I was too small for my maternity clothes and way too big for my regular clothes. (It's cruel that you're in that transition stage in early pregnancy in one season and after pregnancy in another!) The shopping experience was difficult because all of the stores have their spring attire out and I'm shopping for sweaters! Although, this made most of what I did find on clearance.

Thursday, I went to my folks' house. I was going to bring over Macie's birthday gift because I thought I was going to be out of town for her one year birthday party. Thankfully, Michael and I will be here that weekend! Whenever we make it out to Rockwall, it is like the paparazzi is there. Below are the pictures taken that day. I L-O-V-E this one!My nieces, Maddie and Macie. Maddie has developed quite a southern accent. She cracked me up how she said Macie and Audrey.
It is official, Audrey loves Maddie. I think Audrey's first smile in a true response to something came when Maddie was making noises at her. Too cute!

I'm so sorry about the death of your friend.

I dislike the transition time too. I just hate to spend money on clothes that I'll only wear for a short amount of time (hopefully)...such a waste!

I love your hair cut! You look a lot like your momma in that picture with your nieces!

My parents are like the paparazzi as well. Hopefully the constant flashes won't cause permanent damage to our children:)

Your sweet Audrey is just as beautiful as she can be! I love the pictures of her with her cousins!

That is so sad!!! Who was it? Or can you tell?
I hated buying clothes that I new I wouldn't ware long. It is so frustrating, luckily it doesn't last to terribly long.
The pics are so cute and I can already tell she is growing fast. I can't wait to see you. I am planning to come to town in two weekends with Stacy, so it will be late Fri., but would love to try to see you guys Sat. morning sometime if you are available. Let me know. I'll call.
