Visit by Aunt Carrie, a baby girl for Jason and Jamie

First, I would like to congratulate one of my best friends, Jason, and his wife, Jamie. They had a beautiful baby girl on Saturday afternoon. She looks just like her daddy, who I’ve known since the summer prior to third grade (for the math whizzes out there, that’s more than 20 years ago).

At our household, Saturday brought a visit by Oliver’s Aunt Carrie and her boyfriend, Eli. They stopped by for a couple days after moving from Florida on their way to Springfield, Mo., where they are staying before starting their next roving medical gig in Seattle in a couple weeks.

Carrie hadn’t seen Oliver since the day after he was born, so much had changed. She seemed really surprised by how big he is (well, he HAS more than doubled in three months, so what’d she expect?), and she was a really caring aunt. When they left on Monday morning, they left a nice little gift for Oliver: An Elmo doll they had pooled their tickets for during an outing at a Dave & Busters. I’m sure Oliver will love it as much as I loved my Grover back in the late 1970s.

We had a great time, and I thought I’d just share a few of the pictures we took over the past couple days. Enjoy.

Carrie gave Oliver a bath (I’d give her an A for effort and a B for quality!):

Oliver was nice and clean, and happy, when finished:

He was all smiles this weekend, as seen here:

Carrie was a sweet Aunt, and gave us a nice break by holding him (often!):
