It's been a while...





We've been silent for a while. How can you top the trip that we recently had to Illinois?! It was probably one of my top favorite trips of all time (maybe next to backpacking Europe & the UK). What an awesome time we had! Thanks again to Joel, Emily, Ella & Jasper for your hospitality and for opening your home to us!

Since we've been home, we've enjoyed seeing Priya's emerging personality. She rarely ceases to bring smiles to our faces and laughter to our home. She has discovered a new way of smiling recently. She crinkles up her nose and it looks like she's going to burst with happiness! She has also learned to blow out of her mouth. Fortunately there is no spitting that corresponds to this new talent. :) She's also very eager to practice drinking from a regular cup. What a cutie! She just makes us melt!

So Much To Share...

Mother's Day


Emily and I have been enjoying our first Mother's Day as parents today. Joel woke us up this morning to a really nice breakfast and then we were able to take the girls to church and leave them both in the nursery. It definitely gives you a whole new perspective on motherhood when you're on the other side of it - and a MUCH deeper appreciation for all that our own mothers did for us throughout our lives. Thanks Mom! We love you! Baby Faux Hawk

The Fun Continues

A typical morning for Priya and Ella - playing nicely with their toys. :)A woman from Project Parenting stopped by to do some developmental games with Priya and Ella and to see where they are at in terms of their motor development. All is going well for both girls.

Bath time was a HUGE hit for both Ella & Priya!

Priya tries to share her latest toy discovery with Uncle Joel.

A Meeting of 2 Cousins

I am happy to report that Priya and I are safely in Greenville, IL and are extremely happy to be here! Overall the trip was a good one but we were really relieved once we had finally arrived at Joel, Emily & Ella's home at about 2am this morning. Priya and I tried to catch up on our sleep today but also managed to get in some great quality time with family. It was amazing to see Priya and Ella meet for the first time. I'll be sure to share more as the days unfold. Be sure to check out Joel & Emily's blog too for more pics and videos (pennerblog.blogspot.com)!
