World Wide Wednesday

World Wide Wednesday

{What We did this Weekend}

We went to Illinois! Lucas' town has an annual Oktoberfest and it was his 15-year high school reunion, so we drove up Friday after work. We had a really good time visiting with family and spent our Saturday running a 5K, chatting with his old classmates and enjoying the town festival. Needless to say, we were tired by the end of it all. Due to a little car trouble on the way home, we ended up stuck between St. Louis and Cape Girardeau. Don't worry - SuSu to the rescue! We holed up in a Days Inn that allowed small dogs for an hour and a half so that we could all (the baby) be comfortable.

{What We've Done in the Homestead}

Our entryway had been so empty feeling since we moved in, and I knew I wanted a place to actually organize (not stack) mail. Right now, we are obsessed with succulents (real, fake, whatever). We found this table at a cool shop called Nadeau, and I had a lot of fun styling it. It really added a ton of character to the space. 

{What is Eila Doing?}

What is Eila not doing might be the better question. Our girl sits up perfectly on her own now. Even when she tips backward, she is able to use her core to pull her back up and continue playing. I am mostly amazed with how contently she can sit with just a couple of toys in front of her and entertain herself. She was such a trooper on our trip this weekend as she recovered from her cold. She loves to laugh and watch us cook. She is getting herself into crawling poses, but not forward or backward mobility just yet. We bought her sippy cups so she could learn those dynamics. I cannot believe just how rapidly these changes are coming on in our lives. It feels way less like we have a baby in the house and more like the presence of a little girl, which is bittersweet.
