My Week with My Gigi

Fortunately, shortly after Nana headed back to Missouri, Gigi came out to stay with us! We were so thankful for her company and all she did in one quick week. She stayed with Amelia and helped out during my annual conference week, and her help during our busiest week of the entire year meant more than she will ever know! We're already booking her for the same week next year :)

Gigi brought Amelia her first Dolly (which Chris has named "Lama" - get it?) and we loved this photo of Amelia and Dolly sleeping together in the same pose.

Again, taking care of a little one is hard work! Even the best Gigi needs a nap sometimes!

Chris' New Love: Cycling

Chris has been enjoying lots of time on his bike this spring/summer. He bikes between work and home, and does long rides on the weekend. He participated in his first cycling tour in June and also a criterium in August. I'm so proud of him and am loving seeing his excitement for his new hobby!

My Month with My Nana

The month of July, my mom stayed with us as I returned back to work. Nana and Amelia spent lots of quality time together, and Amelia was spoiled with love. We were so thankful to have an extra set of hands around the house, and for Amelia to have some extra love too. I'm not sure who it was hardest on when Nana had to leave! We sure are looking forward to seeing her (and Papa!) again in September.

Taking care of a little one is tough work!
