I'm Back!

Sorry for the delay...we've been busy around here these days. For the past three weekends, we have been traveling or entertaining. 3 weekends ago, Hot Hubby's parents came to visit and brought the grandparents with them. They got to meet their great grandson, which I think makes great grandbaby #100, or maybe 8. Cousin Collin rolled through town and stopped over too. That following week, we went to visit my grandmother Jane who lives in Bristol. She had only seen pictures, so she was very excited to see this great grandbaby for the first time in person! I loved visiting with her and talking about when she had her babies and how different life was. She was amazed at all the contraptions I brought with me for babies. The next weekend we went to Franklin for Mother's Day. We saw all the grandparents again, and spent a little time visiting some friends. My first Mother's Day was wonderful, but the only pictures are on everyone else's cameras, so that will be a post for another time. Finally, this past weekend, Uncle Anthony graduated from law school at UT. Hot Hubby's family came up and we celebrated. Our sweet boy did pretty well through all the festivities, but is always a little exhausted and fussy after these busy weekends end.

Momma bonked my head (twice) and rushed me off to get checked out. Good thing I'm tough, b/c the doctor says I'm fine! Annnnnnnnnnnd, I weighed 11.4 at 6 weeks old!

Who is this "Uncle Ant" who looks a lot like my daddy?
My namesake with a very sleepy giraffe.

Granny, Collin, and a very cute giraffe. See that yawn roar?
4 generations of Bills boys.

Papa and his only favorite grandbaby.
Deanie loves this little boy.

Guess what I learned to do? My momma is so funny.
I'm even smiled in my sleep, still thinking about the funny things she says.
P.S. I've slept from 11:30 - 6 four nights in a row!


  1. So precious! Where did you get that cute giraffe outfit? So jealous of your sleep too!! HaHa!! Eli MUST meet Coopy soon!

  2. YEA!! So happy for the update. I love the pictures of family and all their adoring looks at little Eli. That smile is just too cute.

  3. I LOVE the new pictures!! He is soooo cute. Can't wait to see him in a few weeks!

  4. I loved seeing the new pictures and what you guys have been up to! Hope all is well and I get to see you all soon!

  5. Jane, I just found your blog! I can't believe I didn't know it existed. LOVE seeing your pictures. It looks like Baby Eli has had a full month of family gatherings. Way to go on the night schedule. That makes for a happier momma. Say hi to Matt for me.
