Houston, here we come!

Tonight…we fly. Is that from a movie? Whatever, doesn’t matter – we’re headed to Texas tonight! Steve and Angel are awesome and are flying us and Romelie down for a long weekend, so we leave tonight around 7:00 and come back Monday evening. Four day weekend in TX, woo-hoo!

Romelie is very excited to see her Nanny and Papa again (did I get that right?), and is looking forward to meeting all sorts of family members, including her great grandma, her great aunts and uncles, second cousins, and her Aunt Bronwyn, Uncle Shane, and her cousins. (And we’re looking forward to meeting our new niece Greta as well!) We do sincerely hope that she doesn’t spit up on any of these lovely people but apologize in advance for when she inevitably does. She’s been spitting up a lot more since she started solid foods. Anyone know what that’s all about? Is it just immature digestive system, or is she trying to tell me she’s allergic? That’s the problem with the ambiguous spit-up vs. throw-up – not knowing how much it takes to qualify as the latter.

We’ve also been working with her on consonants lately. She’s really good at making noise, but hasn’t gotten to babbling yet (ma-ma-ma-ma, ba-ba-ba-ba…you get the point). So Chason’s been trying to get her to say da-da. So far, no luck, but it’s pretty funny to watch – he says “da-da;” she shakes her head no. He says “da-da;” she shakes her head no and laughs. Cuteness.

I’ll be taking plenty of photos in Texas, so check the blog again after we return from our trip!
