This morning Lora and Ellen came over to meet you. They have been so patient waiting this long before seeing you! They brought bagels and I made coffee, and they spent the whole visit looking at you and holding you. After they left, you and I went to the airport again to pick up your dad! He is so happy to be home with us again!

Once we got home and settled, we popped you back in the stroller and walked down to get lunch at the Marination food truck. Their food is so good, and today the Parfait ice cream truck was parked right next to them. We had a little picnic lunch sitting in the grass on a side street, and had ice cream as we walked home. Now you and your dad are taking a nap on the couch. It seems like you’re as happy to have him home as he is glad to be here!

Every day you’re getting more expressive. If you’re in a good mood, we can play with you and really make you smile! Lately before changing your diaper I’ll lay you down in your crib and move your legs like you’re riding a bicycle. I talk to you in a funny voice and give you kisses while doing it and you seem to like it a lot! Sometimes I can even get you to smile!
