Babies & a Birthday!

Babies
My nephew. Babies
My cousin.
I cannot believe that these two little guys are already two months old! I guess it's fitting--I met Benjamin (nephew) when he was two days old, Brett (cousin), when he was two weeks old, and now I'm seeing them again at two months. Brett is actually two weeks ahead of Benjamin, and you can certainly tell! He's a bit bigger, and has the most adorable little rolls and chubby cheeks. Oh my.

It's very difficult being away from our families. They're each three hours away in different directions, and with my work schedules (plus the cost of gas, ouch!) we don't get to see them as often as we'd like. It's especially obvious with these guys. They're growing every single day, and we're missing out on so much!
Then there's our Tallahassee family. We love that they get to come visit us in St. Augustine sometimes, but it's really still not enough. Going from seeing people almost every day to to only every few months takes some serious getting used to.

Anyway, back to those two cuties! Paul and I were lucky enough to go visit our Spring Hill family last week for my dad's birthday! It was an action-packed day, since we drove down early in the morning and had to leave the same night. We fit in so much quality time, though. I loved it. We stopped by to see my sister at her school, picked up my brother from school for some hang-out time, got to relax at my parents' house with Uncle Brett & little Brett, go visit Benjamin and his parents at their house for a mini photoshoot, and then celebrated our dad's birthday with delicious food. Whew!

These two got to meet for the first time that night! I don't think either was really very aware of it, but at least we got photographic evidence! I hope they're buddies as they grow up--how adorable would that be?

The man of the hour! I feel so lucky that my mom found such a great guy to be our dad. He's always been there for us and looked out for our best interests. I can't thank him enough for taking care of our mom and treating Bill and I like his own children, along with Michelle. Happy birthday!

One last photo of me as a proud auntie... I know Benjamin doesn't look especially thrilled here, but it turns out he was just gassy. As a result, I got to change my first poopy diaper, yay! Haha, can't wait to see these guys again.
