Aunt Barbara & Lennox Visit

Dear Pickles,

This past weekend, your aunt and cousin came to visit.  Your Aunt Barbara came down to help me and daddy register for gifts for a baby shower.  (Your Aunt Barbara and Aunt Jeanine are throwing you a baby shower in April.  It's going to be so fun!)  A shower is a time for friends and family to "shower" you with gifts so that you have everything you need when you get here.  Mommy and daddy still have a lot of work to do for you in the nursery, but we promise to make it spectacular for you.

One person I can't wait for you to meet when you get here is your cousin, Lennox.  She will be turning three years old a month after you are born.  She is so funny and smart.  I think you will really like her.

Lennox Over Does It...

While she was here, Aunt Barbara and I took Lennox to a place called Monkey Joe's.  It's an indoor park with inflatable slides and fun places to jump.  (I promise to take you there when you are old enough.)

Mommy had fun playing with Lennox.  We did make-believe cooking, we put together a Disney princess puzzle like 20 times, we shopped for baby Disney characters, we learned to slide safely down the stairs, and we snuggled while watching The Princess and the Frog.

Lennox and Her "Babies"

Mommy and daddy really enjoyed Aunt Barbara and Lennox's company this weekend.  After they left, the house was so quiet, and we were a little bit sad.  But then we remembered that soon you will be here to fill our home with joy like the dreamy weekend we just had.

Love you to bits!
