Connor will be a fantastic big brother and the two of you will have so much fun as you navigate this crazy world together!

I got to hold the little doll, too! He's TEENY! Shortly after this pic was taken, we realized he was hungry again. : )

Over Labor Day Weekend, I went to Austin to spend a couple of days with Robin, Jon, Mackenzie, and Travis. It was a blast...besides the 1000 degree weather. : ) I arrived on Saturday afternoon, got to the house, then almost immediately went swimming. Mackenzie was very excited to show me how she can swim under water now. She did a great job, too! And little Travis wanted in on the action, too. He jumped in to Robin a few times and wasn't afraid of going under water in the slightest!!! Robin cooked a yummy meal for dinner, as usual, and we spent some good time hanging out and visiting...a child may have projectile vomited at one point in the evening, too, but we won't mention that here. ; )
On Sunday evening, Robin and Jon graciously hosted a bbq and Jamie Kay, Michele, Angie came from south Austin and Lindsay and Tom Ballard, came with their son Zach. It's really fun because the Ballards live just down the way from Robin and Jon, too! Jamie Kay, Angie, and I haven't been together since Angie and Emily were pregnant with Greta and Connor. We all flew to Minnesota together and spent a weekend together about five years ago. Though we only spent a few hours together, I realized how much I missed my dear AXO friends. They drove up to FW to spend a little time with Emily, and I was really sad to miss that trip...it's been too long since the band was together!

And now I must brag...on Monday, Robin suggested the outlet mall in San Marcos. I thought we'd go and mull around a bit, but I hit that outlet mall HARD and got a huge jump on Christmas shopping!!! Are you jealous, yet? It is so outside my nature to get started so early, but I am so happy to have a few gifts out of the way already!!! I also bought two dresses for myself from BCBG for like 14 bucks. : )
All in all, I had a WONDERFUL time with dear friends. Thanks Robin, for making me feel at home and for continuing to be a great friend even though we're many miles away!!! Love ya, chick!
