A Wonderful Week

Najla, Ryan, Emma and Trevor arrived on Tuesday July 1st for a week long visit. I can't tel you how excited we were to have them come. It had been 3 months since we had seen them and we were just beside ourselves waiting for their arrival. It seemed like this day would never get here. They arrived at the Chattanooga airport right on time. Emma even seemed to recognize us. 

In preparation for their visit we had tried to prepare our house for a 19 month old and a 4 month old visit. Baby gates to the stairs went up, all the pack n plays came our, potty chairs and baby seats and lots of toys.  Dear friends of ours, Kim  and Sarah Thomas loaned us some of Sarah's things when she was a little girl.  A beautiful baby doll, a carriage full of stuffed animals, and a full kitchen with all the fixins. Emma went right for that baby doll as soon as she walked in the door.

She is obsessed  with strollers and insisted that Bentley who was quietly sleeping in HIS stroller have a baby doll of his own to cuddle with.

Of course all the stuffed animals had to go for a stroll around the house.

Trevor was very happy laying on a pile of quits for the time being.

I'll try to post a little more each day. We have so may pictures and videos it's hard to narrow them down.


  1. What a little mother. I bet Bentley didn't mind either. They are both so sweet. I know you had a ball.

  2. We add a great time. Can't wait for the next visit.
