Meeting The Family

This weekend, I took Ivalee (and Craig and Amy brought Nathan too!) to meet my (our) grandparents and family in Georgia. It was a whirlwind trip, putting 800 miles on the new car in just three days, but it was a very good trip!! We got to spend good time with everyone and though it was quick, nothing really felt rushed, so that was good.

Her newest trick is to mimic facial expressions when you’re talking to her. She’ll move her mouth like she’s trying so hard to talk. It’s pretty cute. That’s what’s happening here, I think.

Mendy was sad that she and Derek and Wesley didn’t get to come, so we Skyped with them so Pappaw could “meet” Wesley.

We tried Skype with Granny, but she didn’t really understand what was happening. Aunt Janice and Aunt Karen enjoyed it, though! And Mendy got to show Wesley off again.

She’s talking to Aunt Janice here! 🙂

  1. It makes me cry a bit to see them all holding Nathan and Iva. Especially granny. I hope Wesley isn’t too squirmy for her to hold him when we get our chance!

    • Holding Iva, she twice looked at me and asked how old she was. And when I’d say 7 weeks, she’d say, with surprise on her face, “She’s active!” 😀

  2. How fun! Looks like little Iva got to meet EVERYONE=) Glad you had a good trip.

  3. What great pictures and a good looking family! I’m so glad you got to have such a wonderful non-rushed visit. Also, you look beautiful! And Iva looks SO big! I’m going to need to come see her again before she has her driver’s license.
