lots of family time...

last week i had my sister-in-law anna and her girls, saida and hilina, staying with me! this was the first time meeting the girls since they were brought from ethiopia to america in january by the BEST parents in the world!! we had a WONDERFUL week and i miss them so much!! ben joined us on thursday night and let's just say, i want them all to move next door!



here is ivy, saida and hilina having lots of fun together... ivy LOVED to crawl over them!!







aiden was a GREAT help and he just loved his cousins! he read books to them and even fed them their bottles...





my mom, russ, lily and lucy were also visiting! here is lily and aiden riding their bikes together !

these are great pics! we loved being there and are still missing all the company. thanks for making it so great. can't wait to see you all again. so funny that ivy just instinctually crawled over them.

I was interested to read your blog. As a parent you may be interested in being part of a university study I'm involved with. It’s about how infants and children develop. It wouldn’t take much of your time, and it’s a great way to contribute to knowledge by reporting on your own experiences.
