It's Bath Time!!

Here are pictures from Austin's first bath! As you can probably tell by looking at the pictures, our little boy is not a huge fan of the bath...but the pictures are so darn cute!

This isn't so bad...

No wait...what are you putting on me??

Oh no! I don't like this at all!

awww..much better!

Night, night

Welcome to the world Austin David Simmons

Hey All!
In case you're wondering...we're still here and doing great! I can't believe that it has already been 4 weeks since Austin was born. I feel like time has gone by so fast. I am just very busy trying to take it all in. We are so in love with this new little addition to our family...

Austin was born on Monday, August 16th at 8:44am weighing 7.3lbs. and 19 1/2 inches long!

One VERY proud daddy!

Oh baby, you are SO loved!! Here are your family members holding you for the first time!

Baby Shower July 24, 2010
Hosted by Lori Simmons and Sandra Dumond

This was such a special baby shower because my sister and mother in law were the hostesses!

The tables looked so pretty and there were plenty of very yummy treats!!

I loved these candles that my sister in law made! They said, "Here's a candle for you to light once the stork has made his flight. With the flicker of this flame, say a prayer in Austin's name." They were so sweet

John's cousin, Alicia, made this diaper cake for us!

My sister in law made these with Austin's initials on them. They were so cute...and very yummy!

My niece, Haley with Rachel and Marilyn eating good food and playing games
John's mom came up with some really fun baby games for us to play!

I love how they had baby pics of both John and I out on display! It was really fun to look at those.

I'm clearly very excited about opening the baby gifts :)

Marilyn with one of my besties, Kristen Spigner

Me with Somerset, Grandmom Janie and Melanie
We thought it was so funny how well coordinated the four of us were dressed!
Grandmom Janie, Somerset's grandmother, was visiting from Texas and I was so glad that she was able to come to the baby shower!! It meant so much to me that she was there

Mom, Pauline and Marilyn

Brie, Brittani and Kali

My Grandad stopped by at the end of the shower and I was able to snag a picture with him :)

My sister made this adorable cake for the shower. Its hard to tell in this picture but the baby turtle had a pacifier in his mouth. This cake was too cute!!

A special thanks to sara, my personal photographer at the shower :)
