Month #2 with Baby Connor!

Connor’s second month of life has been very busy! Since our last post we all went down to Connecticut to attend our good friends Chris and Val’s wedding, and Auntie Marci, Nick, and Grandpa Chagnon hosted a party for everyone from Greg’s family to meet Connor! We also celebrated two more birthdays: Uncle Ham Bone (Tom) turned 22, and Sophia Sauk turned 1 year old!

Connor attended the rehearsal dinner so he could meet Uncle Chris and Aunt Val before there big day! He was not even the youngest baby there, Val’s friend and bridesmaid brought her daughter who was only 11 days old! Connor did not appreciate Mr. Gonzales trying to use him as an example, he let out a loud cry when he was pointed out to the bride and groom as an example of what the parents would like for their next big gift, a grandchild of their own. Connor wailed in protest, I think he was trying to say, “They will create a new friend for me when they are good and ready, lets all let the nice Aunt and Uncle enjoy their wedding day first.” The wedding was wonderful, Chris and Val both looked so happy! Greg was finally able to relax once his best man speech was done, and it was a wonderful party. Connor stayed home with Grandpa Jim and company during the wedding. I came back to check on him and feed him between the ceremony and reception, however he was in good hands with Great Aunt Sandy to help out, so I was able to relax myself and have a good time at the reception, and Daddy only called once to check in on him, not bad since this was the first time I was away from Connor for more than an hour or two.

The next day Connor got to meet his Daddy’s families, and some more friends. Auntie Marci deserves the most credit for making the day so great with her cooking and hosting! We are so glad so many family members from both near and far were able to join us and got to meet Connor while he is still a little guy.

This week Auntie Marci is going to come and visit for a few days and spend some quality time with Connor! This coming weekend we will be back in CT again for Nikki P.’s Baby Shower and to celebrate yet another birthday Grandpa Changon is going to be 59. Then we are off on our big adventure to San Francisco! We will be sure to take lots of photos and report back on our trip, the day we get back Connor will be 2 months old!
