Welcome to Motherhood!

This past week of motherhood has been an eye opening experience for me. Connor wanted to make sure that I was cut out for this job! The week started on Sunday with Connor waking up with pink eye (doctor called in medicine right away), which by Monday afternoon had turned into a high grade fever. Then comes a doctor's visit on Tuesday morning and we left with prescriptions for an ear infection! By Tuesday afternoon, the other eye starting to look bad. Finally by Wednesday he was able to return to Colleen's house, but that didn't last long. Early Thursday morning Colleen called to say that she wasn't feeling good at all and thought it would be best for Connor not to come (turned out that she had strep throat). Then on Friday, I had to stay home because I had come down with a sinus infection. All in all, we survived the week (not to mention that Matt was out of town for two days of this drama filled week). I did explain to Connor that he didn't have to come down with everything at once, he could have eased me into caring for a sick child (but judging by the smile he gave me, I think I passed the test). This is how he looked for most of the week:

Photo Shoot

Connor was a natural for his photo shoot at Tara and Todd's on Friday! Tara and Todd were the photographers for our wedding and they definitely captured some great pictures of Connor's personality. Here are just a few of them...

Happy Easter!!!

With Connor's first major holiday quickly approaching, we decided to start getting in the spirit of Easter. The weekend started off with a visit to the Easter bunny at the mall. Of course Connor slept through the entire thing (I guess I should be thankful that he wasn't screaming). As soon as we got done paying and walked away from the bunny he was wide awake!!! Next, we went to Target to get his first Easter basket (complete with grass and plastic eggs). When we got home, I couldn't help but to put him in the basket. And to my surprise he fit! So I decorated the basket with the grass and then put him in and topped him off with eggs. Here are the pictures from our weekend...
