Her first time at the Magic Kingdom
Joe's brother Kevin and his family came to visit us this week. Yesterday, we all went to the Magic Kingdom together. Again, a second child, who is only 2 1/2 weeks old, does not seem to stop our movement. However, I did have a few panic attacks about having an infant in the mass crowds of people. Despite all that, it was very fun going to the Magic Kingdom with them. I also got to finally ride the Goofy Roller Coaster with Evan. I have never been able to go on it with him because I was pregnant the whole time he's been big enough to ride. It was the highlight of my day to go on it with him and see him ride with kids hand up in the air yelling "AHHHHHH".

Here I am trying to be artsy with this ADORABLE hat and flower that my friend Abby gave Claire. I love it and was trying to get some good shots for the birth announcement. These were taken yesterday, March 8, when Claire was 10 days old. It was also her due date yesterday and Joe & my 8th anniversary. Who could have imagined how blessed we would be 8 years later, with 2 beautiful children and a wonderful almost 6 year marriage.
Evan is fantastic at puzzles and he loves to do them. Here he is (dressed as Peter Pan of course) with the latest accomplishment, a Yoda puzzle, for kids 5 and older. He completed this puzzle about 90% by himself. I'm pretty sure I couldn't finish that puzzle myself!
Evan had so much fun with his Uncle Bryan and Aunt Laura while they were here, he insisted on going with them back to Virginia. We asked him if he wanted us to pack him up in a suitcase and he said yes. Thankfully for his sake, he fit in the suitcase and was placed in their back seat. I am sure glad he didn't go, though. We sure would have missed him!
Here are 3 of the 4 grandkids and 2 in utero in this picture. We are just missing Maxwell. So exciting that there will be 2 more babies born into the family this year. Bryan & Laura's baby boy around June 19 and Charlie & Shannon's little one around October 3.
Okay, so maybe they do look a little ridiculous on a few day old baby girl, but I had to try out some headbands and bows that we got as gifts. I love the headbands (thanks Aditi) and bows (thanks Abby & Tara) too much to not try them out. She does have plenty of hair for all of them. She'll be sporting these in a few weeks, but for now, maybe I'll just let her enjoy being a baby and not my little doll :).
Evan is the #1 Orioles Fan! He LOVES his Orioles shirts (he has 3) and must wear one every day. I can get him to school in a different shirt ONLY if I promise him that he can change as soon as he gets home. When Bryan & Laura were here, I let them take all the baby boy clothes home with them they wanted, and we came across this baby Oriole's hat. Evan insisted we put it on Claire immediately and here they are, the 2 #1 Oriole's fans!
