A quick trip South

We made a last min quick trip down to Va last weekend.  I wish it could have been longer, there was a few people I would have liked to connect with that I didn’t but I was lucky enough to spend lots of quality time with my bestest.

We spent a few hours on the beach in Cape Charles on the Eastern Shore.  It was awesome, I couldn’t believe I had never been there.  So peaceful and uncrowded.

I got to give cuddles and kisses to some of my favorite little ones: Lily, Dylan, Connor, and Charlie.  It was so great just hanging out and having quality time.  I did find at the end of the weekend I had take very few pictures.  I guess I was so busy enjoying the moment.  Taking in the love of great friends that I didn’t even want to take time to snap pictures.

It is always a bit bitter sweet heading to the Hampton Roads Area.  I am happy to be there and to see everyone but it makes leaving so much harder.  For the first time in my life all my closest friends are in the same place – husbands and kiddos – and we aren’t in the same place physically.  It makes me a wee bit sad for the girls that they could have so many playmates if we were there.

Oh well maybe someday the stars will align again…

So it begins

Sadie started on solids on Friday.  Oatmeal first and has had apples since.  She LOVES it, even grabbing at the spoon and guiding it into her mouth.  Yup she was ready.

Sadie went for her 4 1/2 month check up on Friday.  We have the joy of having another daughter who is off the charts.  This time the top of the charts instead of the bottom.  Sadie is in the 75 percentile for her weight but is in the 100% (actually a little above that) for her height.  We have ourselves a tall one.  Wow it sure feels good having her do so well.dsc_0254
