Abbey & JoAnn's visit

Sonia was a bit bored talking to me and the kitties all day, so she asked her CousAunt Abbey and her Grandma JoJo (my mom) to come entertain her. Hilarity ensued! Or, rather, some sleeping, eating, pooping, and occasional crying ensued....


We visited the Morton Arboretum and took Sonia to see her big brother's tree.



Abbey, who is 15 1/2 (I mention her age because she just got her CA driver's permit-- woot!), is a natural with babies. Apparently, she was a big hit with Charbaby as well (Grandma JoJo and Abbey were in Nashville visiting the Stringers before they came to Lisle).



Grandma JoJo took some very, very cute bathtime pictures:





We have been feeding Sosi a bottle of expressed breastmilk once a day to keep her accustomed to taking a bottle (just in case I can't be around to breastfeed). Grandma JoJo has enjoyed helping feed the kid! I love this picture-- I think Sonia (who is wearing an adorable onesie that was a gift from Abbers) looks like she's a bit suspicious of this whole bottle thing....



This morning, Abbey flew back home (we miss you!), but my mom is going to stay until Saturday. I am so happy to have the company and the help! Mom rules. Today, Mom, Sosi, and I met my good buddy, Jeanine, at the Morton Arboretum (yes, we go there a lot!) for lunch at the Gingko room. It was so great to see you, Jeanine!

Yay I'm glad you got to see Jeanine today!
I think I am going to have to bring Catie down to the Arboretum one of these days.
