Quick Catch Up!

I know it's been a while, but I wanted to do a quick catch up on the past couple of months so we're all up to speed before the big arrival of baby Carson!  That's right, Carson will be here soon.  In 3 days to be exact.  Yes, this pregnancy has flown by in a blur but we are so ready to welcome the little bambino. 

Besides getting excited about being a big brother, here's a quick glimpse of what Griffin has been up to!

Dada took G to his first baseball game at Georgia Tech.  Griffin was proud to cheer on the Yellow Jackets.

The game was even more fun because they were with their best buddies Jack and Mr. Cliff.

We welcomed baby Jackson into the world on March 7th!!  Griffin was excited about his new cousin and Chad and I are thrilled to have a new nephew!

Ramsey and Jenna are doing great and make this whole parenting thing look easy!

With the warmer than usual weather we've been having, Griffin has enjoyed playing at the park and having picnics with friends....

.....and has taken time to just lay back and enjoy life.  So important in this busy world!  :)

He did a lot of egg hunting this Easter...

...convinced Dada to wear this silly hat (that G refused to wear)...

....and single handily ruined a potentially cute school picture!  (Seconds before this picture was taken Griffin had thrown his Easter basket - full of eggs - to the ground.  The general chaos in this picture makes me laugh every time I look at it!)

(How hilarious is this?!  Griffin wanted no part of this group photo session with his friends at school.)

Surprisingly, he did give the Easter Bunny a nice hug at our neighborhood egg hunt.

Another play date with neighborhood friends...and what play date is complete with out cupcakes?!

And just this weekend, Chad and I thought we'd treat Griffin to something really special and take him to the train museum (since the boy LOVES all things trains).  Turns out that G was terrified of pretty much everything!  I think the sheer size of the trains spooked him a little bit and the fact that there was a REAL train weeshing and blowing it's whistle nearby really freaked him out.  Poor kid just might have nightmares about this "adventure" for a while.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't want to take his eyes off the train for fear that it will start moving.  He made it clear he didn't want to RIDE any of the trains.  Sweet, sweet boy.

Soooo, there we are in a nut shell.  I've been spending the last week or so getting things ready for Carson and being an emotional basket case in general.  While I'm so excited to meet the new little man, I find myself getting sad about our last few days with Griffin as an only child and as a family of three.  We have (finally) gotten so comfortable in our life and our roles as parents only to have things change DRASTICALLY in just a few short days!  Even so, we are ready for Carson to arrive and shake things up a bit.  I know it will take time to find our "new normal" but we are all ready for that challenge and can't WAIT to see what God has in store for our family!
