Enjoying my break...

Me with my parents at our family reunion

I've really been enjoying my maternity leave off work. I love how it worked out that it was during the summer and that Thomas has the summer off of school so we get to hang out a lot. This week he's speaking 3 times a day at Camp Cale in Hertford, NC to 10-13 year olds. I believe it's been a bit of a challenge speaking to that age range, but it's definitely been great experience. Since he's been out of town I decided to head to good ole Cville to spend time with friends and family. I've had such a great time! I know my parents will be sad to see me go on Sunday. They've really soaked in this extended visit and made the most of it.

My friend Kristen came by to visit with her two girls Anslee (3) and Lucy (2). It's so cool to share the experience of children with friends I've known forever. Kristen and I were in nursery school together and have been friends ever since. She's truly one of my oldest friends and I love that we still keep in touch when we can. Her kids look just like her when she was little!

The next day I went to Kings Mountain to visit Thomas' grandparents Mary Etta and Jack. We had lunch and I was able to spend the afternoon with them as they were able to hold and enjoy spending time with Judah. I'm so glad I was able to do that because he was all smiles! It was so much fun.

Me and Whit with Emery and Judah

Today I went and visited my longtime friend Whitney at her parents' house. She had her little girl Emery back in January so she's 7 months old. I was able to go visit her at the hospital the day she was born. That was the first time I'd ever seen a baby on day one so it was a really cool experience to be there with her on such a special day.

I liked this picture of Judah and Emery together so you can compare their sizes. His face is so funny and his body is positioned like the frog on his outfit. He wasn't really cooperating but Emery was loving the camera and being very photogenic. When Judah would cry she would scream out too like she was talking to him, too cute.

Looking forward to taking Judah to church on Sunday and I know my mom's super pumped to show him off to all her friends. I've been keeping Thomas connected this week by sending pictures and video of Judah via text. I know he can't wait to see him again soon cause we're missing him too!
