Out with the old, in with the new...

Happy Holidays everyone. It has been a busy few weeks for us, so sorry for the delay in posts! We did a lot of traveling as a family for the holidays. First off, we ventured down to Springfield for Christmas and a few days after. It was good to see Alex's family and for Adeline to have some quality time with them. After our time with Alex's family, we headed up to my Mom's for some more celebrations. All of my sisters were in town for the week of New Years Eve. It is always so good to have everyone together, even if it is just for a short time.

It was the first time for Addie to see a lot of our family. She met her Grandpa, aunts and uncles, some cousins, and even some second cousins. I am happy that everyone has met her now because I know these times are precious and fleeting. I fear it will be many months before she'll see some of them again.

Adeline was such a good traveler. She seemed to grow up quite a bit while we were gone. She is making much better eye contact now, smiling some, cooing, and holding her head up really well! She is going through a growth spurt right now, so that means little sleep for me, but hopefully it will pass soon. It is hard to believe she is already 6 weeks old!
