This past Saturday Andrew ran in the "Warrior Dash" in Casa De Fruta. This is a 3 mile race that has running, obstacles, water, mud, fire, and for a lot of people, costumes. There were a total of 12,000 participants over 2 days. Scott and Becky Carolan also ran in the race. Instead of making it a day trip we all went down Friday night and stayed with our friend Jeremy's parents who live 10 minutes from the race. The weekend was a ton of fun and it is always fun to see Andrew covered in mud from head to toe. I will definitely have to participate next year.
Levi made his first trip to Bakersfield this past weekend to meet some of the family that hadn't seen him yet. Friday night, my dad cooked up some amazing salmon and had the extended family over for dinner. Levi definitely is not going to have a lack of love with this family. Then on Saturday, Carley was having a birthday party (Big 17 year old!) so we headed over to the Feil's to visit and catch up with Andrew's family.
Great Grandma Net with all 5 great grandsons
Charlie and Levi
Henry has the cutest little personality. He disappeared into the bedroom only to come back out dressed like this. Adorable!
Jack really wanted to hold Levi, he was so sweet with him
Levi with Grandma Sue
And the infamous, Great Grandpa Arly
Layne got to meet him for the first time this weekend as well
Last week Levi took his first nap in his crib. For the longest time, we had a nursery ready for a boy or girl... whoever God wanted to bless us with. And now Levi is here and doing an amazing job of making that space his.
This baby sign was created and used at my Fresno shower so it now adorns the front of the crib. Thank you Lacy!
Mission: Make blueberry muffins before Andrew wakes up...
You definitely need 2 hands to bake. Holding Levi didn't give me that option so I thought I would try my hand with the moby wrap. It worked well for a few minutes but Levi doesn't like to be in the same position for all that long so he got tired of it. Let's just say Andrew woke up and ended up finishing the muffins. So much for having them all ready for him.
After Levi was born, my mom stayed with us for a week to help Andrew and I transition into parenthood. Oh man was it helpful. She was able to answer all the little questions as they came up. One of the nicest things was that we now had 3 people to trade off with during the night when Levi would cry or just decide to be wide awake at 2 a.m. She did our laundry, made food, and basically took care of Andrew and I so that we were able to take care of Levi. THANK YOU Mom!!! You are seriously the best.
