Meeting Conner

Now that we've been home from Utah for a couple of weeks it is definitely time to start blogging about our trip.

One of the biggest highlights, if not the biggest highlight of the trip was meeting Conner.

Look at that face! He is just so cute.

Jon and Jessie were really good about letting my kids hold him, touch him, play by him, etc. James attempted to touch him a few times, but mostly interacted by just saying, "baby, baby, baby" over and over again. Avery liked to hold him and talk to him. It was all very sweet.

I loved holding him myself, but had to fight Grandma Nette a few times to get a turn, and also had to fight James. He wasn't absolutely sure he wanted me to hold Conner. It would be fine for a few minutes and then all of a sudden James would come over and try to climb up on my lap while I was holding Conner. Then I'd have to do a quick pass off so that James could settle in and suck his thumb...all being right with the world again.

We miss sweet little Conner and hope we get to see him again soon!
