We were gone. We are now back.
We missed the hurricane in NY because we were on the Midwest Baby Tour.That’s what I’m calling it because there were sooooo many new babies to meet and cuddle and see. We drove from NY to Ill to INDI to Columbus to Cleveland and back. These pictures hardly represent our travels as I literally never took one picture- which is why I am in some of these. I was very busy sniffing babies and watching my child prance around in her new two piece ( thank you Tricia!)
We are tired, but full. Happy to be home, but missing the weight of those sweet new baby boys.What’s that? Oh yes all boys! So many baby boys! I mean Sunny is going to have her pick one of these days- if she can ever get their names right. She calls them ( all of them) Rory. Apparently if you are a baby boy you’re name must be Rory.
While we were gone Sunny started asking for “hugs” and said “I love you” for the very first time, it pales only in comparison to the fact that she WANTED to dress up in a fairy wings, satin shoes, and an adorable princess crown that she found at her cousins house.
Literally the proudest moment of my adult life. Not only did I take 100 photos but I also took video and made her twirl around in circles. I mean this is like equal to having a boy and finding out he LOVES football, well I’m assuming. If I had a boy I’d see if he wanted go shopping and decorate my house- what good does football do me? Anyway I digress.
