Family Love

Uncle Colin came in town to get some things done and Connor had a wonderful time hanging out with him. I think I'm going to call him the Baby Whisperer from now on, as he seems to be the only one who can get Connor to lay calmly. It was actually hillarious. He just hung out, on his back, next to Uncle Colin for about 30 minutes without making a single peep....unheard of! He also LOVES watching him play the guitar! We might have another musical Little Man in the family!
Aunt Katie also got to spend some time with him and we all had fun just watching how much he's grown. She was amazed that he hung onto his Lion (grandma & grandpa got it for him for Christmas) and was perfectly content being pushed around by her.

Other Mamas and Dads, I'm sure, can relate to this. But there is NOTHING more amazing than watching someone love your child. Really. I absolutely cannot imagine my life without friends and family in my life. Mr. Howard and I couldn't raise him by ourselves. There are days when we are exhausted or VERY SICK (like I have been the last few days) and they are there to help love him when we're feeling less than able. It takes a village and boy do we have one!

We are so lucky to have friends and family who travel up to see us and spend time with us. We are equally lucky to have people loving us (and Connor) from afar!
