We had a great time on Aili’s first trip, first visit to the US, and first meeting with her cousin Sophie! Oh, and there was also a little shopping involved. What’s a trip to the US without a little visit to Target??
Sophie is almost exactly 6 months older, and it’s fun to see the path that we’ll be going down soon. She’s crawling, and enjoying all sorts of baby food, cooing and talking (baby talk, that is) and getting into everything. She’s not a baby anymore; it really feels like she’s a KID. It’s going to be so fun when Aili is engaged and interactive like that too, but it reminds me to appreciate her as she is now, because it only lasts for such a a short time.
We really hope that our girls will grow up knowing each other well, and be close friends.
The Muffin and I are both really exhausted from the trip today (although it was as uneventful as the drive down) so we’re looking forward to a quiet evening and hopefully, a good sleep.
Thank you to Jodi, Jim, and Sophie for hosting us!

Well, cuz, it’s been nice getting to know you.
