Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Lyla and I have been enjoying a visit from Kristin! She arrived on Saturday night and we have had some fun and full days. Sunday was church, and then allllllllll afternoon in the garden pulling weeds. Weeds grow very quickly, in case you were wondering. Monday we went to Meijer Gardens for a lovely walk, and then home for naptime for Lyla and a National Treasure marathon for Kristin and me. Today is her last day here (sadly for me and for Lyla). It's been fun to see her interact with Lyla for the first time, plus a huge help to have someone else around. And we've snuck in some good food and (so far) one trip to Jersey Junction.

Lyla is getting bigger by the minute! She is almost done with her brief stint in the Bumbo since she's just about able to squirm out of it. I think her hair is getting curlier, which explains the wild stylings. She squirmed around 180 degrees on her stomach this morning, so we're counting down to crawling too.

Here are a couple of pictures from Meijer Gardens yesterday:
