Tonight, we headed to see my friend and her new family at the hospital. (I was itching to hold the babies!) The babies are so beautiful and sweet, and R was absolutely in love with the baby girl in particular. He kept begging to hold her and was so gentle and amazed when he did.
When we arrived tonight, my friend told me what she had just found out today: her dad passed away last night at nearly the same time as the babies were born. He's been battling brain cancer for almost two years, and we knew that this week would probably be his last because he was going downhill very quickly, but it was still a shock. So much joy and sorrow all at once. It's been an emotional roller coaster to say the least.
But, to keep with my friend's attitude, I'm posting some happy pictures from today with the babies and last weekend at our local carnival.
