Well, I have just been awful at keeping this updated since Ethan joined our family. It's crazy how such a little person can consume so much time and energy! The week after Ethan arrived, Ronnie's parents came and spent the week with us. It was great having them here and they were able to spend some quality time with their new grandson. Virginia was a great help to me, as well, with the baby and keeping the laundry done and keeping us fed. I'm so glad they were able to be here with us since they live 9 hours away, it's hard for either of us to make the trip very often.
The weekend they left, my brother and Stormy came up to visit their nephew. We had a great time with them, and they are just pretty crazy about Ethan! Bub was a little nervous at first about holding him; he was afraid he might break him! I think by the end of the weekend, he had gotten the hang of it and was much more relaxed. We enjoyed having them here and spending time with them - thanks for coming!

The next week and a half, we were home alone, getting adjusted as a family and becoming more and more sleep deprived every day! Ronnie was able to take some time off work with his FMLA, which was great bonding time for Dad and baby and a huge help to mom! It was some great family time before we headed off on our trek across the state for the holidays...more posts later on Christmas!
