Nugget (Month 7)

Dear Willa,

Happy 7 months, baby girl!

The month started with me in California for work. We all survived. Though I think your daddy was more than ready for me to come home, and you didn't grow too much while I was gone.

You had your first family vacation when the three of us went to Boston for a long weekend. It had been four years since the last time I was in the city, and I was way overdue for some Boston time. I was excited it to be back in my favorite city, but mostly I was excited to get to share it with you. It's not a trip you'll remember, but I will.


The flights this time went much more smoothly. You were a wiggle worm that would not sit still, but you didn't get fussy and start crying. We were able to keep you entertained or get you to sleep when you were tired. Thank goodness because it was a much longer flight than the one to Denver. 

We didn't pack the days with activities in Boston. Instead, we mostly hung out with my friends. Luckily, we stayed in a hotel downtown so when you got tired, we went back to the hotel for you to nap. On Sunday we rented a car and drove up into New Hampshire so we can see the fall foliage.


Last weekend we went to the Dallas Arboretum to visit the pumpkin patch. You were fascinated with all the pumpkins and various gourds. It was adorable.
