Fun with Grandma

Grandma Bollard was here for 4 days because of Boston's birth(see previous post). Courtney was, of course, so happy she could hardly stand it. Everyday we went out to do different things.

As you will be able to see from previous posts, Courtney and Dave are two peas in a pod. They love to open their mouths and eyes really big for pictures.
We definitely need to say a big "thank you" to grandma for all the fun. We she left Courtney said, "Why did grandma have to go? Cause I wanted her to stay for a long, long time. I just love her."

Boston is here!

Boston Gallagher arrived on Saturday around 3:30 in the afternoon. He came nearly 4 weeks early but still weighed a good 6 lbs. 3 oz. He is a beautiful baby and he and mommy(Brooke) are doing well.
We all got to visit them in the hospital on Sunday and Courtney was so excited. I don't know if there is anything that can rival how much she loves babies. The funny thing was that she didn't want her grandma to hold the baby. Grandma is only allowed to hold her.
This is the fifth baby born between our two families this year and there is still one more due. I think Courtney just thinks everyone having babies is a normal part of life. It may be pretty shocking for her to find out that no one else in the family is pregnant, as of right now(there's still time though Darron and Kristen, haha).
I should mention also that numerous cousins on both sides of our families have had babies as well. I'm trying to count and have come up with the number 5 but it may be more. Plus there are a few more cousins having babies before the year is up. It's hard to keep up with them all.
