Brody's First Easter

Looking dashing in his new Easter outfit.  All dressed up an no place to go.
I am always looking for reasons to take a family photo.  Brent is a pretty good sport, even though he rolls his eyes at the suggestion.  We had to capture our first Easter together!
We spent the Easter holiday with my sister and her family.  They came over for dinner (pork roast, potato casserole, salad, and rolls).  We gorged ourselves, and then were entertained by the triplets the rest of the night.
The "Weirlets."  (Short for the Weir triplets!)
After we let dinner settle, we made root beer floats which was a first for the triplets.  Lauren really liked hers, but the other two weren't so sure.
Melanie and Jason.
Of course Brody was a big hit, the center of the attention.  Lauren took a turn holding him, and was very amused by the squeaks, groans, and grunts he makes.  She kept smiling, and giggling at him.
Landon also took a turn, and loved holding his cousin.  He kept asking to hold him again, and again.  However, Nathan wanted no part of it.  He has a fear of babies that none of us can figure out where it came from.  By the end of the night he had warmed up a little, and would at least be in the same room as Brody.
It was a great first Easter with our Brody.  We love you baby!
Today he weighs 8 lbs. 8 oz.  So, at 18 days old he has already gained 1 lb. 2 oz.  He's already growing like a weed!  I want him to stay a tiny, snuggly baby a little bit longer.


  1. What a handsome little guy! I hope he didn't eat too much candy. =o)

    It's okay about Brent. Dads enjoy rolling their eyes at the camera, plus it will be permanently attached to your hand from now on. The more pictures the better!

  2. So glad that you had a wonderful Easter. Sounds like you couldn't have asked for a better day...

  3. Thanks for the yummy food and the fun Easter. Love you guys!!
