And Adelaide is just so much happier with both of her parents are playing with her and spending time snuggling and talking and taking her outside and blowing spit bubbles and screaming. Oh yes, screaming is the new thing around here. Happy screams. Frustrated screams. Mad screams. Mostly happy. She gets so loud. We scream back at her, so I'm sure that's just encouraging the noise, but we love it so much.
Sunday we met up with some friends for a few minutes. They gave us a bit of watermelon (they're always giving us food!) and it was delicious with a bit of salt. Yum.
Monday we drove the hour to Kevin's parents' house to spend some time with them, his sister, and our nephew. The last time we went up there Adelaide didn't really want to be held by anyone and was very cautious. Of course, everyone wanted to hold her and spend time in her face. It wasn't a great mix.
This time, she was able to sit up solidly in the middle of the living room floor, falling only once. Everyone sat around her. Her four-year-old cousin loved making her smile and of course the screams came out. She did so much better with all the attention. She was able to interact this time, and she even let Papa Brown hold her for short bursts of time. Awesome!
[Our 4th of July baby!]
Yesterday was a very special day for us: my grandparents came to meet Adelaide for the first time! They drove up from Florida and gushed and laughed over the new baby. They read this blog and adore all the photos. It was so nice for them to actually spend some time with her, and she did wonderfully with them as well! Pictures to come, soon! Just have to find time to resize them and upload them.
She has met almost all of her family, now. She has so many people that love and adore her. I hope she always knows that and doesn't ever doubt it. This girl melts my heart every day. Kevin and I are both in awe at this little person. She is less and less a baby and more of a person. With intentions and preferences and thoughts and giggles and screams. Lots and lots of screams. :)
