Easter Pictures

I know this post will not have much substance to it because it's so picture heavy but I just had to share.  On Good Friday, I had the day off and Oliver was not being himself so off to the pediatrician we went.  Once again, the verdict was ear infection.  I feel like a broken record about that sometimes.  Well, my sweet boy had to endure 6 shots of Rocephin over 3 days, in hopes of finally clearing up this stupid effing ear infection that had plagued him for 8 weeks.  After the shots we had to wait at the pediatrician's office for 20 minutes to make sure he didn't have a reaction.  Now, my boy is like his mama and wants nothing to do with being patient about anything.  So, needless to say, Easter weekend was a disaster in a lot of ways.  However, we were able to sneak away on Sunday afternoon to Charlotte, have lunch, take these pictures and stroll through Ikea for the day.  We have no family here so there aren't sweet family traditions to make or time spent all day eating ham, hunting for eggs, etc.  I know at some point we will need to make better holiday traditions (considering we went to Waffle House on Christmas last year...don't judge me, my child was 9 days old and sick) but for now these are perfect.

Surprisingly, Oliver cooperated and we managed to get some really cute shots.  I am so, so thankful for these.  Jennifer, our photographer, captured our engagement pictures for us and was able to do these as well.  I LOVE them!

These photos could not have been more perfect, especially considering the trying weekend we had.  Also, the timing of receiving them was perfect because my GMA is declining rapidly and I know my mom has appreciated her spirits being lifted.

We are off again to Virginia to see the family.  I can't even begin to describe how hard this is but I am embracing the photos we get to keep of her with Oliver.  I know he won't remember her but I will try my hardest to remind him what a wonderful person she is and how much she loved him. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you like the photos as much as we do.

  3. Cute pics! Oliver is definitely rocking that tie! I definitely understand what you are going through with your grandma. I lost my grandma the year my first son was born. I cherish the photos of him with my Granny!

    1. Definitely don't wish the baby stage away, Valerie! It will go way too fast...I promise! You will miss it more than anything when it's gone. :-)
