Radio silence again - it's typical with a newborn, right? I think the primary cause for my absence here is that we've had visitors nearly nonstop for the last few weeks, which has been great, but keeps me from a) holing up in the craft room during naps and b) taking time away to blog.
Most of our guests have been grandparents, but a very special friend snuck in between two sets of them.
Jade came for the weekend and we had such a wonderful time. She and I met just like the old friends we are (through the power of the Intertubes) even though this was the first time we've been in the same place at the same time. She's just as funny and warm and wonderful in person as she is on your computer screen. Annika cried when she left and has been begging us to move to Austin ever since. She seems to think that she can make Jade's kids into her posse, which is a scary thought indeed. Jade also brought with her a HUGE suitcase full of outgrown baby clothes, so between that and a wonderful (soon to be blogged) box from Chris, little Kit has enough clothes to wear something new every day for at least the next 2 months. I'm so grateful for their generosity.
We largely just hung out and chatted and took turns snuggling the baby, but on Sunday, we drove her up to see the pretty part of Arizona.
We took a field trip to Sedona, where she waded in (freezing) Oak Creek with Annika, ate lunch on patio overlooking the creek, admired the red rocks and spires, and spent some time at the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
We sent her home with a suitcase full of outgrown clothes for Makena and a big bag of lemons and a lot of love. I hope she enjoyed us as much as we enjoyed her.
Oh, and the gratuitous baby Kit photo. She's 4 weeks old already!
