Last weekend we packed up and headed out West to Colorado. We're here for a bit of a longer trip because Jon is in a class, and we're excited about spending more time with friends and family that we don't get to see very often. Kate is really lapping up all the extra attention. It was touch and go for that first day but who can blame the poor kid as she tries to adjust to a two hour time change in just 24 hours? But she bounced back on Sunday and has smiles for all the doting grandparents. The Moms, Kate and I went out to breakfast on Monday and while Mom Luminati was walking around Cracker Barrel with Kate, she said a waitress came up to her and said, "Oh my, it's the Gerber baby alive and well!" Then yesterday she began sticking out her tongue as though she can't quite get that food out of the corner of her mouth--it's really funny. I'm going to need to get baby chapstick if she doesn't stop doing that. Sorry, no pictures this time, but I'll try to add some at a later date. Oh, I also wanted to add it's quite the adventure living in a small hotel room with a nine month old. We have a bedroom separated from the living room by a door, so we don't actually have so share space with her when she's sleeping. That's a tremendous help. Now we're trying creative ways to see if we can get the monitor to reach all the way to the hot tub. No luck yet.
