I’m certain that some of you may think that we’ve fallen off the planet. We do apologize for not posting more often, but December sort of ran away with us, and we’re just now getting back. You already know that JP’s parents came for a visit, but you may not have known that my parents as well as my siblings and their families came for the Christmas celebration this year. Our house was bursting at the seams with good people, good food, and good times… not to mention a porch that leaked!!
Take a look at this beauteous family…
The best part of the holidays was being able to have all of our family together, though I should apologize to that precious family for being a bit crabby at times. (It was trying, at times, to have so much going on while also taking care of a baby with little-to-no sense of schedule.) It was a BIG year for the Wings, with a new brother-in-law (Kyle,) and two new babies (Eleanor and Leila). What a treat to be all together. You can’t tell from the picture, but it was a big year for the Sundararajans as well, with a new sister-in-law (Anita,) and one new baby (Leila,) and one on the way (James & Anita’s due in March.) Soon we’ll all be together too… looking like mid-March.
Wouldn’t you know, our camera lens broke about four days before Christmas and had to be sent in to be fixed. And then, because they called the wrong phone while JP was in India, we’ve just now gotten the camera back in our possession. We may have missed Leila’s first Christmas… 😦 … but we did get her 3 month pictures! All the pictures of Leila in this blog are from her three month birthday.
Leila is doing great… sleeping on more of a schedule these days, and happy as a lark most of the time. She loves to share her thoughts and opinions with anyone in the room, can hold onto her toys when she wants to, and rolled over once. Each day seems to prompt a new skill or experience, which is exciting for both Leila and her parents.
Here’s to 2009!!
