4th of July Photos


Just a few (hundred) photos from our 4th of July weekend in Illinois. Had a great time introducing Noah to Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and great Friends. My parents had t-shirts made with his picture on it and also managed to acquire more toys at their house for Noah to play with than I would have thought possible - buses, horses, pianos, drums, ride-ons, teething animals, slides, links, swings and even a sit-n-spin. It was a regular romper room and he enjoyed every single toy (at least once). And he LOVED the fireworks - was fascinated by the lights and sounds. An awesome weekend! Next up we go to the East Coast to introduce him to Anil's family - can't wait!

We're back in CA and Noah started daycare this week - Monday was incredibly hard but now it's Wednesday and already getting better. He seems to love it there and as long as he's having a blast, who am I to complain! I sure miss him though. Work is keeping Anil and I very busy during the day, and we are making the most of our nights and weekends with the little man. So life's good!

And a shout out to all those waiting (and wondering) families out there - I know it's so difficult and we are thinking of you all every day! I have a feeling many of your waits are *almost* over! Wishing you all good things!

Thanks for the pictures and the post! I enjoyed reading it! Noah is adorable! It was neat that your parents did so much to make you guys welcome! I love the shirt idea!

Ooh I bet that first day of daycare was SO hard for you! I'm not looking forward to that day one bit. It's good to hear he likes going so much! I am sure that made it a LOT easier on you!

Glad to see more pictures of the adorable Noah! I'm sure the transition back to work is difficult but it sounds like Noah likes having some buddies to play with.

Thanks for thinking of us waiting folks. It looks like the wait is just about over. Hopefully good news soon...
