She lives in Lawrenceville (near Atlanta) so she made the drive down Friday night. I was super-excited for her to see LL because she hadn't seen her since she was about two months old. She has changed so much since then!
Mommy to be!
We had Laura's shower at Two Friends Cafe and we had a really good turn out! There were only about 11 people there (not bad considering that Laura doesn't live here!) and she got so much stuff that I could hardly believe it! She got in one shower the amount that I got in two of mine. I was so excited for her because she got about half of the stuff on her registry and she still has one more shower to go! I can tell you one thing, Meatball is going to be the best dressed little boy in Lawrenceville!
Me, Laura, and Mrs. Connie
Me, Mom, and Laura
I miss Laura already (and I know she already misses Lorelai), but Matt and I are planning to take a little two day trip up there in about 3 weeks so that Uncle Gino can see LL a little bit before Meatball gets here. When we went up there in April, Gino was super-sick (we actually had to cut our trip a little short!), so he really hasn't seen her since she's been born! I think the shower went AWESOME, I hope Laura had a good time, and now I'm just ready to meet Meatball!
Finally, we headed home and we've just spent the evening hanging out as a family. We did gifts with Matt the other night because we new we'd have a crazy weekend with Laura's shower and Father's Day and I wanted us to be able to take our time with that. Lorelai got her daddy a new wallet and I got Matt some cologne. Our theory was he could smell good for Mommy and spend his money on Lorelai. :) We also had some pictures of Lorelai taken in Tallahassee last weekend, so we got Matt and surprise collage of 9 of those pictures to hang in his office at the church. He was surprised because they were pictures that he had never seen before. All in all, a great day!

Here's a video of our little girl in action! It's a little bumpy, but I'll get better as I figure out our new camera...

5- Talking. This little girl talks non-stop now! She will even wake up in the middle of her nap, talk to her mobile, and then go back to sleep. It is absolutely adorable and I love it. I think she's going to be a motor-mouth just like her mommy.
6- Head control. Her head control is SO much better than it was even just last week. It seems like it gets tons stronger every day! It is so good now that we can actually put her in her Bumbo for extended periods of time. Actually, I found that she loves to sit on the kitchen counter with me while I do stuff in there. *note - I stay right in front of her so there is no possible way for her to injure herself!
7 - Laughing because stuff is funny. When she first started laughing, it was only if we tickled her. Now, she's starting to laugh when she thinks you are being funny. It's really cute and usually sends me into hysterics, as well. Then the whole thing just turns into one big laughing fest.
