From left to right we have:
Evelyn 1yr, Tabor 2 months, Gabriel 4 months and Liam 10 months
The mommies with our kiddos. I love you girls!!
The daddies and their little ones. We're really going to miss you all!
These kids are just too cute! Evelyn is giggling and having fun while the 3 boys are wondering what the heck is going on. Tabor seems terrified of all the flashes haha!
Finally, the group shot. Let's just say this was a tough picture to take. I think it was past bedtime for the tots and the moms were holding on as tight as possible while the dads tried to work out the electronic issues. All in all I have to say it's a great picture! We love y'all!

The theme of the shower was Paris Nights. It was a co-ed cocktail party! The champagne & wine bar was so much fun! Marlene you are so creative!
The food was amazing!
The tables were beautiful! The tablecloths were made by Sarah. Marlene found the fabric and Sarah did the hems on them. I ironed and pinned some of them...that was my contribution to this task!
We set up a photo station and bought props from Michaels. We had a blast taking all kinds of different pictures!
The nearly newlyweds!
Tim & Marlene the amazing hosts!
The Touchstones & The Pitchfords
Touchstones and the Sanders
Touchstones, nearly Thiele's and Tim!

Tabor you're 2 months old! Time really flies! I can't believe you've already been in our lives for 2 months. I can't imagine our life without you in it!
You've changed so much already in such a short time.
You've been rolling over with my help for a few weeks now (since about 6 weeks) but on 6/8/11 at 9 weeks old you rolled over by yourself. Dad was watching you and set you on your tummy and when you rolled it scared you and you started crying. So it was probably an accident but you did it!
You weighed 12.6lbs at your 8 week checkup. It was also the first time we heard you cry because you were in pain it broke our hearts! You now have received your first set of vaccines and you are a healthy little boy! Praise God!
We took pics of you with your buddy Gabriel that day and when we set you up to play the piano your head bobbed and you hit your head on the piano. So that day we heard your "in pain" cry twice. We decided it was your first worst day ever. We're so sorry!
I am convinced that you've said your first word and it's "hi". Dad thinks you're just making noises and it happens to sound like hi. (Mommy thinks you're a genius and of course you can speak already)
You're current eating schedule is 4:30-7:30-10:30-1:30-4:30-7:30-10 (I'm writing this here so I have it stored somewhere)
You love to such on fabric and stick out your tongue to lick everything.
You can hold up your head really well, but you're still out little bobblehead. You love to head butt us. It hurts.
You no longer prefer to be on our shoulders. Now you like to be held facing out so you can see everything around you.
You still shake your fist after you eat. I love this!
You're wearing size 1 LUVS diapers but not for much longer. (We don't want to throw out the ones we have so you're wearing them until they run out!)
You hit a growth spurt at 9 weeks. You were starving one day and exhausted the next.
Your double chin and rolls are cute. (you look like your dad did as a baby)
You sleep on the right side of your head and you giggle in your sleep - a lot.
AND your cry still sounds like a cat. We call you our cat-dog because you cry like a cat and breath like a pug. :-)

Finally, my friend Rachel suggested I try LUVS diapers. We now LOVE LUVS! They work double "doodie" ha! We have a theory that LUVS diapers are made for big-bellied babies. (which Tabor definitely is) So LUVS it is!

Tomorrows plan...sleep!! We need a recovery day!! Our new roomates are soo wonderful too. So a fun day of R&R with them will restore us! Tabe is ready to play with Gabe! I want to help Sarah in the garden! Hopefully we can get everything done at the apt today so the rest of the time in Cali we can spend hanging out with our friends!!
