This month, we've had a good batch of guests. Uncle Graham came to see Hadley, and they were quick buddies, mainly because Uncle G plays the guitar and, it turns out, Hadley loves the guitar. Here is a shot of their first meeting:
Then my college roommate Lydia came, and after Hadley gave her a bit of a hard time for a few days (read: cried when Lydia held her), Hadley decided to reward Lydia's persistence with smiles and coos and snuggles. Evidence here:
I love Hadley's hair here. It looks like a bad hairpiece, and it's just so funny.
Then Jason's mom (Grandma) and sister (Auntie Crystal) arrived. Hadley is a fan of theirs, and she especially responds to Crystal's voice and to the funny faces she makes. In fact, Crystal got Hadley to laugh--as in, throw-her-head-back-and-belly-laugh--the other day. It was fabulous! Here's Hadster with her aunt:
This morning, our friend Tasha came to see Hadley. Tasha threw me a beautiful baby shower brunch in a ridiculous April snowstorm, making it all even more memorable, and she came back from California (where she now lives, sniff, sniff) for a short visit this week. Hadley LOVED her--nestled right into Tash's arms and took a lovely nap (and our faithful readers know how Hadley doesn't like to nap). Tasha promised to take Hadley shoe-shopping when, well, when Hadley needs shoes. Picture of Hadley and Tasha coming soon...
After Crystal and Sandy leave, we're taking a little break from visitors and trying to figure out how to raise a baby while both of us are working. (Gulp.) I go back to work a week from this coming Monday, but I'm not going to think (or write) about that right now.
For now, we're just going to enjoy this week...happily with Hadley.
