We've made it 3 weeks so far :)

My g/f Sheila (who took our maternity pictures) came over and took some Otwell :) family photos and some of our lil guy Landon! I definitely plan on getting her back over to do his 3-6-9-12 month pics – if she will!!

Three generations

Mom (Omi), Dad (Pappa) and AUNT Jayme were over ecstatic to meet their grandson/nephew. Mom was amazing the weeks she was here!! She cleaned, cooked, did the laundry, dishes, walked the dogs … we didn’t know what to do!! Her and Billy were wonderful to me – I didn’t lift a finger for much and they took such good care of me while I was recouping!

It was so very hard on me the first “work” days for Billy. He works 6pm-6am and being alone with Landon without my tag team partner was HARD!! Landon cried, I cried … that’s how some of our days go! Not ashamed about it – I’m just not all that sure about his cries yet … course I really don’t think one can ever figure them out fully hahaha!

We’ve had many many visitors come by and see our lil guy! We have such a great 2nd family down here! It’s amazing!!! Always checking in on us!!

Our friends Yohira & Crom and Lindsay & Josh both found out a few weeks ago they are both having GIRLS :) We are all very much thrilled for them! They are due one day apart in September. Then in November our friends Cynthia & Jeff will be getting married and in February our friends Jackie & Ben will be getting married!!!! Babies and weddings!!! It’s awesome! Just waiting on Amy and Fahey now haha! :)

May 12th the Parker’s will be arriving here at the Abbott Casa! We are super excited for Aunt Julie, Unk Josh and big cousin Jackman to meet Landon. May 15th Cathy (Nana) and Mimi (great-grandma) will be arriving here too!! It’ll be great to have more family down!!

Aunt Jayme will be coming back on June 26th and staying with us till the end of July to help with Landon during my summer program at work. We will be using our church’s daycare for Landon after all family is gone! They are great people – for a great price and they are willing to work with us when Billy only works 2 days a week or if he works the full week. It’s very nice to have such a great place and the willingness to work with us regarding our schedules!! Our church is having a shower for us May 4th as well!

Billy will be off probation August 1st! WOW … now he can really do some damage! Ha! OHHH Just kidding!! He’s worked realllllly hard and is doing an amazing job! He finally got a brand new car – 2010 Impala. His old car was having issues left and right and we were beyond stoked when he was told he was on the list for a new one!

Enjoy the pictures – thanks for all the gifts/cards/and well wishes!!
