Jesse, Cam, and Lida really needed to meet Soren and this fall was too busy for them to make it out to the West Coast. So I brought Soren to them! We surprised Lida at the airport. She thought she was with Pa at Logan picking up a package and instead they picked up us. The plan for the short visit was to get as much time together and relax as much a possible. And it worked! Jesse and Lida skipped school on Friday to hang out and got tons of good Soren time. Soren thought Cam’s deep Louis Armstrong impression was hilarious. Jesse is the ultimate baby holder for naps- she lasted 2.5 hours one afternoon. And Lida was very helpful with fetching items needed. We all decorated G and Pa’s house for Christmas and it felt wonderful to get a little holiday time with my family as this was our Vancouver Christmas year. Soren was great on the airplane and hopefully this is the start of a good traveling kiddo.
Adam and Sloane stayed home and Sloane was really sick. She had a fever for a few days and a bad cough. Adam said Sloane never let him get more than 4 feet away from her from Thursday morning to Monday morning except for the first couple hours of sleep each night. And then he caught the bug….. Soren and I definitely got the better end of the deal. We’ll make it up to them some day.
Soren was about the same age Sloane was on her first trip to NH. On her trip, it snowed also. And we propped her up in a doll highchair that Pa made for Lida’s favorite doll Pa baby. We set up Soren in it as well because as my dad would say babies are good props!
