a wedding and a birth

This weekend has been quite eventful. I was a bridesmaid in my friend Rebecca's wedding AND our first nephew was born!

We spent Friday night and all day Saturday with the new couple. Friday was the rehearsal dinner, which was so cute! The grooms family held the dinner in the church hall and turned it into an italian restaurant. They served salad, spaghetti, garlic bread, and yummy deserts. It was so cute and personal.

On Saturday we did the whole wedding thing. Hair, make-up, etc. It was fun to be apart of a wedding and not be the bride. The wedding was beautiful and the couple looked so happy and in love.

Also Saturday was my sister-in-law's due date, which normally doesn't mean much because no one ever goes into labor on their due date, Right?? Well at 7am Saturday morning Jenny called to say her water had broken and she was in labor!!! We were totally shocked. And unfortunately we had the wedding and couldn't be at the hospital to help welcome our nephew into this amazing world. But let me tell you we were so excited and could not wait until today to head to Baton Rouge to see him. His poor mommy was in labor for 12 hours but at 6:18pm Judah Lee Gilbert made his arrival. He was 7 pounds 13 ounces and 18 1/2 inches long. He is absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way. We woke up at 6 am this morning and headed to Baton Rouge. We were just so excited we could not contain it! As soon as we got there we were able to hold him and love on him and the best part was that it was still early and it was just us and his parents in the room so we got plenty of time to enjoy our nephew! Unfortunately we had to leave at 12 to head home so James could get ready to leave for the week. We are so happy to have a new baby in the family and are so ready to spoil him rotten! I am already ready to go see him again!!

Our weekend was amazing and eventful but now it is time to hit the books because it is FINALS WEEK!
I am so excited to be finished with this semester on Wednesday! This has been so long of a semester and I am ready for a break.
