After the parade on the 4th, we headed home for some quiet time. Danny pulled out the slip and slide, then back up to Virginia City for fireworks. We usually don’t stay home for the 4th of July, but we usually find fun with each other no matter where we end up.
Over the last few weeks Hallie has put on almost 4 pounds, which is just amazing. To think the doctor was worried because she wasn’t gaining as quickly as she thought she should. All is well, she’s getting chunky and cute, and is now smiling and laughing at us. That first month goes so quickly. If you take a deep breath you can still smell her newness, I am going to miss that newborn sweetness, but look forward to all the wonderful stages ahead of us. I can’t wait to see how her personality is going to develop, the kids are all so different and wonderful and we have one more to get to know.
