Evenings out with friends
I think John must be teasing Vanessa about how much she likes to bounce.
Over at Sara B.'s place, Vanessa gets a hug from Sara's mom. It's handy to have a pediatric nurse as a friend!
Vanessa goes to school
Vanessa was very awake for our visit to Peggy's room. She was very happy to spend some time in the arms of such a practiced mom and exciting science teacher.
New bride Leslie gets a sneak peek at parenthood.
Beverly said that her teenage kids wanted her to read aloud the books she bought for Vanessa. Who can blame them? Children's literature is some pretty good stuff!
Another new bride Robyn was the first at Whitman to hold Vanessa.
Beverly is expecting to hold her own little girl in a few months!

Two grandmas napping
Kalena and John visit
Uncle John watches Vanessa do her new trick of clasping her hands together. John has a bunch of nieces and nephews (including new twins!), so he has lots of experience with babies.
Aunt Kalena holds Vanessa while Vanessa practices her "Go Team!" salute. Kalena took time from her busy first-year teacher schedule to see her new niece!
Grampa makes sure that Vanessa knows that "M" stands for Michigan.
Daddy practices feeding Vanessa on the bottle on Friday. On Saturday, Vanessa stayed home while Mommy went to work. Vanessa did a good job with the bottle, and she was sleeping happily when Mommy came home.

Hail to the Redskins!
Vanessa wasn't quite sure what to make of the outfit however...

Rainbows and friends
Vanessa's first rainbow! Granted, she had trouble seeing it with her eyes closed.
Vanessa's first trip to Tippy's Tacos.
Lisa had fun playing with Vanessa. Vanessa was awake again for quite a while, and Lisa did a great job of keeping her entertained.
Don't you think Vanessa is so adorable when she yawns? Rachel clearly knows how to make Vanessa feel cozy.
The Cahill's came over to Nana's house to take a peek at Vanessa. Here, Owen inspects the new baby. "Hi baby!" he said. Also pictured here are Owen's mom and dad (Lisa and Justin), and aunt Natalie.
