On our balcony
She was able to spend one-on-one time with all three boys during outings, and Sophia really took to her.
It was so nice to have a real guestroom and bathroom for her to not waste time in transportation to and from a guesthouse or hotel. We had our work cut out for us beforehand, but with everyone's help, we transformed the room and I LOVE the results!
Our "everything" room before...
...and after, all ready!
A couple more improvements
Since it's set up so nicely now and isn't used for much except clothes drying during rainy season, we've decided this would be a great baby birthing room when that time comes. :)
A few more pictures from Nana's visit!
Waiting outside her door after her arrival (I think Sophia is signing "food")
And there's grandma, bearing cookies, of course!
Sophia is giving brother Michael a run for his money for the title of "cookie monster"!!
Mom and I had fun re-organizing all of Sophia's clothes and the new that she brought (for both babies) into various bins, well-labeled for easy retrieval.
Trying on her new walking shoes! She loves them.
The first couple of days, this was a common look Sophia would give Nana, studying her like "Um...who are you again??"
Practicing with Daddy!
Dinner with Elena and crew: her mother (also visiting), 12 day old twins, and our favorite midwife Katrina (from New Zealand)! Sophia was very curious about the babies and Michael loved holding one for a while.
