Once again, I am days past these events, but they're too special not to remember! So I'm catching up a bit while I can.
The change from summer to fall happened right before our very eyes in Fort Collins while there visiting Caleb, Haley and Charlie. So fun to take a little trip downtown in sweaters and jackets, when just the day before had been shorts and t-shirt weather!
At three weeks old, Charlie is already getting out and about with ease.
That's mainly because his mama does it with ease! So proud of how she's taken to mothering with such joy and love.
In the afternoon, we stopped by the same park where Caleb and Haley took their wedding photos over three years ago.
At that time they had no idea they'd be living back in Fort Collins for a time...nor any idea they'd have Charlie! It blessed me so much to watch the three of them together while Claire took their photos...so loving towards each other and of course towards Charlie!
Speaking of him...there's just nothing like baby snuggles with him! He's a good snuggler. 😊
Claire and I got in our share of cuddles with this little guy while we could.
All too soon though it was time to say goodbye.
What a special week we got to share with them! I am so thankful for the blessing of spending time with Caleb and Haley, and getting to know Charlie in his first days of life.
"Caleb and Haley, what joy for me as a mom to watch the two of you enter into this beautiful world of parenting and do it so well! You're already doing such a great job at loving and caring for Charlie, and I have no doubt will happily continue on that path for the rest of his life. He is blessed to be under your care! Love you all and look forward to the next time we get to see each other!"
