I decided that I should add a new post, even if I don’t have anything really driving the post because the last one was so uplifting. We had a couple visitors this weekend. My college roomie, her hubbie, and their adorable little Mina drove down from Minneapolis to meet Alice. It is so exciting to see what Alice will be up to in about 8 months. We will have to do some serious baby proofing – Mina took hardly any time at all to point out everything we’ll have to fix: the bookshelf, the stereo, the wobbly brass lamp, and the door to the basement.

It was fun to watch Angie feed her solid foods – while Mina was reaching for everything in her reach. You really do have to be on your toes and Angie and Aaron are some of the quickest in the business.

We had a fun trip to the zoo, but we were all pretty tired when we left. Alice had her fill and let me know it! She apparently doesn’t like to eat in large crowds – she prefers a quiet, candle-lit environment to the buzzing hot dog stands outside the Aquarium. She did seem to be mesmerized by the fish in one of the saltwater displays. The brightly-colored butterfly fish, angel fish, and clown fish all seemed to catch her attention. Maybe this will convince dad to start up his saltwater tank again???

We had a wonderful time with the Guimaraes family and can’t wait for our next visit.

Enjoy your Monday!
