|Such a great family!|
After arriving two hours late because of a flat tire (changing a flat tire in the cold with a crying baby is just no fun) we finally got to relax and have some fun! The two baby cousins got to meet for the first time!

|Give me that arm back... it's so delicious!|

Sunday we got to brunch and spend some more time with Tony's brother and his family and their cousin David. It was such a nice time, we didn't ever want to leave. The weather was beautiful so we played outside in their yard until Miles finally crashed! He napped while we all got to play outside some more.
|Miles LOVED this swing! I can't believe he's such a big boy!|

This was by far one of my favorite weekends of the year! We had such a great time with all our family and friends. But the one thing I realized is just how important family (and friends who are as good as family) are for Miles to be around. I have not seen him smile so much since we were in New Mexico with my family. Miles will smile (I didn't think about that rhyme when I named him) for me all day long, but when we go out he doesn't really smile at strangers. I want him to be friendly and sweet to everyone, but he looks at strangers with his brows furrowed. Well, the second we got around family that all changed. He was so full of huge gummy grins for everyone I didn't even know what to think. He refused to sleep on the way to Austin, so I was sure he would be a grump. But no, he smiled for everyone! And when we got to Waco, same thing. He gave Lyndsay and her family the biggest smiles I've seen. It was just so sweet to see him so happy and comfortable with his family! I cannot wait for us to go back to New Mexico again so he can smile for everyone there!
