Little Buds (Friends & Teeth!)

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend. It truly is a privilege to live in the United States... and I am so grateful to those men and women who have given their lives (and those who currently are serving) for what freedoms we have left!

Our weekend was eventful... but uneventful!

Saturday, we went over to our neighbors house. Their son and daughter in law have a little girl who is 12 days younger than Eloise. They wanted us to bring El over so the girls could see each other. Of course, at this stage, neither of them really care about the visits. I think they may've looked at each other 2 times! But it was sweet to see them together!

Josephine didn't gain any weight for the first 2 months of her life... so she is quite a bit smaller than Eloise. I was hoping El wouldn't crush her as we were taking the pic above!

Sunday was Eloise's Dedication at church. A number of family members drove the hour (or more) to our little town to come to celebrate with us. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of my own because we used our camera to video. My father in law's white blood cell count was low at his check up this past week and there was concern about him being in a big crowd of people. He wasn't able to attend because we didn't want to compromise his immune system. I know that we were all disappointed, but hopefully he will enjoy watching the video... and hopefully I can snag some photos from my sister and mother in law! We had a little lunch in the church basement after the service... but other than that, our weekend wasn't full of picnics and celebrations. We mostly just sat at home, entertaining a baby... in front of the fan! (Man, it's been HOT!!)

You can go HERE to see pics from the dedication--(agh! I look like a dweeb!)

In other news... Eloise is getting her first tooth!!! So far we are dealing with mostly drool... she isn't too cranky... yet!!
