And Now She Walks!

Grandma Jean's back yard

Beach at Malibu

Vacation? Well, it was anything but that. Amelia kept us on our toes the entire twelve days. The second day of our trip she decided to walk. Her first steps were in her Great Grandma Jean’s living room for all to see. She’s still a weeble wobble, but in the past week has made it up to about twenty steps at a time.

We had a delightful time celebrating Grandma Jean’s 90th birthday in Monrovia. It was great to see everyone for what turned out to be a terrific family reunion. We also enjoyed a visit with Grandpa John and family in Phoenix.

This new mom and dad are tired. We now need a vacation from the vacation. Amelia’s even tired. She took a 90 minute nap today on her first day back at school.
