To Grandpa's House We Go

We decided to go visit Emme's grandparents today (my father and his wife Gail). We left after lunch and she did GREAT in the car seat today. Not one tear was shed and she had a nap for the hour ride there. We arrived at 1:30pm and in a matter of minutes grandpa won her over with bubbles and a ball they threw around. We took a nice walk, went to a playground where she went on the swings , climbed a wall with a little help and rode a springy duck. Soon after we got back from the playground she helped her grandma make meatballs and sauce though she opted for the scrambled egg entree. It did us both some good to get out and an opportunity for her to spend quality time with family. As promised, some updated photos.

I remember how exhausted I was when Amelia and I got back from China. She wouldn't sleep either -it gets better, I won't say easier, but better...I promise.

Dear Lisa
Thank you for the photos. Twice a day I check for new pics of Zubin and now Emme and every few days I look for photos of the families that were adopted when Zubin was. The photos are darling - your daughter is just precious. I know it was a great day - what a great face!
Love

Great photos! She is so adorable! It actually choked me up to see her so happy. Today is 1 year since Lilly has become our daughter officially!

It looks like she was a happy girl and with that came a happier mommy. Getting out is definitely a good thing.

I will call you later!

I am so glad you went. And I bet it made you both feel good to be outside. It makes us feel human again.
