Pardon the cell phone photos – I didn’t pull out the real camera this weekend…
Saturday was a day spent doing a whole lot of nothing and it was glorious. We managed to leave the house once to take the boys to get donuts (the original plan was the farmer’s market but it was raining like crazy so we traded fresh produce for fried dough – a delicious treat).
Sunday morning I got the supreme pleasure of meeting Wesley Levi, who arrived into this world at 4:35 Saturday morning 8 weeks early but weighing a ginormous (relatively speaking) 5 pounds, 14 ounces. He’s spending some time in the NICU but everyone is praying for a brief stay. [Side note: I’m not sure what this says about me, but I kind of love being at the hospital. Perhaps I should think about a health-care related career, one that doesn’t involve endless years of school and residency.]
Sunday afternoon we headed to Lansing for some quality family time. Lunch and card playing with grandpa and grandma and then dinner and more birthday celebrations with the rest of the fam at my brother and sister-in-law’s house. I love my family.
My niece and my great-nephew (ha, I can’t write that and not laugh because it seems I should be really old to have a great-nephew).
Jack entertained himself by hiding in the ottoman, I can only imagine how much fun he’d have at Art Van.
I love unamused/uninterested Andy (my un-great-but-still-awesome nephew) is trying to appear in the photo on the left but right after singing, he got a big kiss on the cheek from his dad and his grandpa and the illusion of cool is gone.
A good time was had by all. Including my brother’s dog, who we found standing on the dining room table, starting in on the pasta salad.
I love being in hospitals too! Maybe we should go into nursing together 🙂
Or hospital administration 🙂 Though I do think I’d love nursing, aside from the bedpans and other bodily fluids.
