Labor Day weekend

It has been like Grand Central Station in our house this past weekend, but it was a good thing. Casey's mom and sister got here on Wednesday night to see Abby for the first time, and they stayed until Sunday morning. Abby got in some good snuggle time with her Grandma Rhonda:

Then on Friday night, two of my Harding friends came to visit for the weekend and see Abby. Lindsey brought her daughter, Hallie, who is 3 1/2 months old. So cute! Sara spent most of her time loving on the babies, which gave me and Lindsey a little bit of a break. Thanks, Sara! :) Here are our sweet girls/future Harding roommates:

Sunday was also Abby's first time to go to church. I got her all dressed up in her pretty purple dress, and she was so good all morning! She stayed awake through the whole worship service and then fell asleep halfway through class. Of course, we had to get a picture to document her first Sunday:

After church, we decided to be brave and go eat at Chili's. Lindsey and I are still getting used to carting these babies around everywhere we go... car seats, diaper bags, making time for feeding and changing diapers... it's crazy! We survived (thanks again, Sara!), and here's a picture of the girls:

Now everyone has gone home. We are completely exhausted, but we had a good time. I hope it's not too long before we can all get together again! Rhonda will be back to see Abby in October, and this time Grandpa Terry gets to come, too. It's amazing how popular we've become since this baby arrived... :)

Great pics! Hallie looks like she's flagging down the waiter in that last one. :) You and Abby both look beautiful in the one taken at church!

Love that picture of you and Abby at church. So adorable, and what a wonderful, tangible way to remember that first Sunday. So glad to have seen you all this past week. Hope you get some rest now -- oh, wait, you have a 4 week old. You don't get to rest for about another 5 months!! :) Just kidding. She is totally worth any loss of sleep.

You are so cute!! Good luck as you adjust to the baby. Abby is beautiful. What a head of hair! Glad Sara and Lindsey were there to play with the babies. Love you! ^_^
