I can’t quite believe Ada’s already hit her half birthday (well, as close as she can, since April doesn’t actually have 31 days!). The swirl of life sure does fly by quickly sometimes. We certainly have been having loads of fun here. Some highlights…
We got to meet Kathryn, the second daughter of our friends Meredith and Bryan, when they travelled to North Carolina for a friend’s wedding. The dads did Ergo duty while we enjoyed a lovely spring brunch at Weaver Street Market.
Ada learned to sit up on her own - after a few topples! ;-)
Ada started gnawing on everything and drooling all over to go with it. No teeth yet though.
Hazel got in on the action too. :-)
Our old neighbor and friend, Sarahmona, came to visit and helped watch the girls while I ran my first race since Ada came along. I even beat my goal time! Woo hoo!
Ada and I got to see our friend Kathryn in between a year long fellowship in London and a new faculty position in Sterling, Scotland!
We discovered how cute AND practical pigtails can be and therefore further avoided ever taking this child for a haircut.
We went to Kidzu - the Children’s Museum in Chapel Hill - for the first time in a while and discovered how much more developmentally appropriate the place is for Hazel now. She had a blast in the market/kitchen area and loved baking these muffins for me.
Dan’s parents came to visit, and a great time was had by all, despite the fact that Hazel isn’t showing it here. We went to Touch a Truck and took our first ride on the train at the Museum of Life and Science.
It’s been a good month. Happy half birthday little one!
