Summer Days

Like everyone else, we've been keeping busy this summer! Leaves little time for blogging.

We took our first road trip with Chloe this past weekend. We packed up the car and went to Decatur to visit my family. It was a very quick trip, just a little over 24 hours, but worth it. My grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles and even some cousins got to meet Chloe.

While we were home my friend, Beth, gave us 3 Miracle Blankets to use. If you aren't familiar, they are these fantastic swaddling blankets. And, MIRACLE is the appropriate word! We have used the blanket for the past 2 nights and Chloe has had the longest stretches of sleep yet. Sunday night she slept from 7:00pm til midnight, and last night she slept from 8:30 til 2:45am! It was amazing! We got more than 4 hours of sleep at a time! I don't know if it is the blanket, but I am thankful for the last two nights!!!

My fantastic, wonderful friend Tracy is coming today!!! She lives in NC and is in IL visiting family. She is taking the time to drive down to STL today and staying the night. I am so excited to see her! She got to meet Chloe while we were in Decatur this weekend, but only for a few minutes. So, she'll really get some quality time with us today. Tracy has two little girls of her own, Emma and Abby, whom I adore. I know that our daughters will be lifelong friends, just like their Mommas!
I think we are going to try to take a trip to the mall. I haven't been to the mall in quite some time. It will have to be a quick trip, but a trip nonetheless!

Just one more picture to close out the post....

Hope everyone is having a great summer!!!
