# meeting Rowan

Life is B U S Y right now. I have lots to tell you about and even more to do before the move next month. Pardon us while things are hit and miss for a bit.

I’ve been anxiously waiting to share my trip last month to meet baby Rowan, who is even more precious than I could have dreamed. This was captured in my first “drop-the-bags-and-grab-the-baby” moments with him.

Happy Aunt NoNo and a confused Baby Rowan.

I was so excited to have Bryan, Robbi and Rowan to myself for a week. We hardly ever have that much time together, much less time for just us. We spent it soaking up all things baby and Mexican food.

I told Rowan about his Okie relatives (who do rock). He was all ears.

…and all about The Force since his Mikey Joe was still in Utah.

Bryan and I introduced him to Les Mis…

And I loved on Marti, who is adjusting well as a big brother.

One of the highlights for the trip was getting to spend the days with Robbi. We took Rowan out to the farm to meet his Mimi and Great Aunt Connie…

…as well as to meet Bev and her friend Cyndi. Lots of smiles for us and for Rowan, who is a total champ and heart-melter.

We also took Marti to the vet.

This dog. He’s the best. I totally said “SMILE!” before taking this as a joke and dang if that dog didn’t crack a wide one. He’s hilarious.

I got to see Rowan have his first bath in the tub — traumatic as it was for him, it was so precious.

Less traumatic was baby’s first Intentionally-Closed-Eye pic. Welcome to the club, Stud. #nailedit

We, as usual, ate big with this ice cream (which was ah-mazing) and visits to Tom and Chee… (that’s a mac-n-cheese grilled cheese sandwich…omg)

…and Coal Vines. Yum.

But, the best highlight was seeing my baby brother as a dad. It’s quite special.

They are doing such a great job as smitten parents. Here are some of my favorite shots of the new family.

Probably one of my favorite pics. Marti’s face says it all.
