So, when we decided to go visit three different homes with Vanessa on Saturday, I was at least partly worried that Vanessa would get a little tired of visiting! But she enjoyed hearing cousin Brett play the piano and cousin Danielle sing at my Aunt Teri's house. And she enjoyed meeting new people at my friend Rachel's house. Vanessa did get a little fussy at Rachel's house for about 10 minutes or so before I remembered it was time to feed her!
At James's friend Ryan's house, I was sure that Vanessa would be at her visiting limit. But even though she stayed up 3 hours past her bedtime, she still was happy being passed from person to person. There was a very adorable two-month-old baby boy at Ryan's house too. At five months, Vanessa looked about twice his size! I can't believe she was so tiny only a few months ago. James and I were remarking that Vanessa has gained about 2 feet and almost 20 pounds in one year (counting the months in utero). A pretty incredible growth spurt!
