Visitors Galore!

 Since Foster was born we have had a constant stream of visitors. This is NOT a complaint. We have LOVED it. We took a 10 day vacation (I will post photos soon) and other than that, I am sure that we have not gone more than 5 days without having house guests. This has been great for many reasons.
1. We love watching people love our son.
2. If there are people around to hold the boy, I get to get some work done and do not feel like I am neglecting him.
3. We got to go on a date!

My parents were here from June 14-July 12th
Thomas (Andrew's little brother) came into town June 30th-July 1st.
Andrews Parents (Scott and Anne) were here June 25th-29th then July 16th-20th
Matt and Jodi were here July 18th-23rd
We left for Vacation on August home on August 10th.

We had so much fun with All of our family and friends! Matt and Jodi were so sweet with Foster! It was such a blessing to have them in town to just hang out and love on us and our baby! 

 August hit us with a steady stream of visitors made up of former students of ours from Liberty - followed by friends and family.

August 12th - Jenna Wiles came over
August 13-17 - Bailey and Katja into town, Maria came over from Ft. Worth
August 21st-24th - Anne Beard in town.
August 29th-31st - Christine in town.
Sept 1st - now - Brian and Jenn Beard.

First was Jenna Wiles...She spent the day hanging out with out us and getting to love on Foster!

The next day, These two crazy kids (Bailey Bollinger and Katja Jones)  came into town...Maria Cox came over too, but I am horrible, and didn't take a pic of all 3 of them. 
This is how they want you to think the visit was...
This is what the week was really like.  
I have to say, I learned a lot about babies from Bailey. She knows a lot!
Thanks Bai!
Katja, Foster, Bailey, and Hayley
Hayley White met up with us at the Burger's house in Ft. Worth one day. 

 This is Michael - I call him Mikey, He was on his way down to San Antonio (where he goes to school), and stopped by to meet Foster. When he showed up at our house, Bailey, Katja, and Maria were there...So in our living room we had 4 of our former students from the same graduating class...we loved that moment so much!
Granny Annie has been here a few times and is headed back down this month. 
We have been so thankful for the time that Anne has been here.  She was here for 3 days and didn't leave the house once...but we were able to go see Batman and shop a little...the longest we had been gone without him!

Then one of my best friends, Christine Biondo had a few days of break from work and decided to come into town to meet Foster.

She left on Friday and then on Saturday Andrews Brother, Brian, and his wife, Jenn, came in to meet foster!

Aunt Jenn and Uncle Brian...and Foster!
It has been NUTS but has been so much fun!

Who do I look like?

We have not been able to decide who Foster looks like, so we snapped this pic. 
I have decided...
Nose - Mine
Upper lip - Me (the Welker boys and I all have this same shape)
Mouth - Andrew far - Andrew 
What do you think.
My sweet boy is two months old. We sure do love him!
