Yesterday was a lazy day

We didn't do a whole lot yesterday. Tuesday night the sweater lady came. Her name is Myriam and she makes a whole bunch of stuff. I've seen sweaters, dresses, cards, blankets...We bought a dress and sweater for Murphy and also a traditional Colombian outfit...hats, shoes, and all. She'll make it in a size four so it fits in a couple of years. She's going to come back sometime this week and bring blankets. I want to see if I can find something for Murhpy's baptism. Myriam also makes baptismal outfits but Murphy is going to wear my baptismal dress. My paternal grandfather also wore it. My dad's maternal grandmother made it in 1896.

Murphy slept until 8:30 or so yesterday so we didn't get up and moving too early. We made it as far as the bank and the sandwich shop. I didn't even get ready after I showered. I worked for a little bit and Rob checked his email. She fell asleep around 8:30 again. I didn't sleep well...I coughed quite a bit, which kept up Rob and Murphy. When she woke up at 6:00 I just took her downstairs so Rob could sleep a little. We had breakfast and are back up in our room again. She's ready for a nap so hopefully she'll fall asleep soon. Rob is going to do homework today and Patty, Sam, Murphy, and I are going to the botanical gardens. We're going back to Archie's tonight to eat. Besides the Kansas City family that is staying at our motel, there is another family from KC at another motel. They are flying home tomorrow so we're going out for a going away party.

Have a great day!

I love the pictures, especially the last post where Rob's hand is about as big as Murphy. What size is she in? She looks so happy as do you guys. Keep on posting. Cara

Cara asked a great question. What size is she in? How big is she now? What does she weigh? How long is she?

You all look so happy - it's amazing to see in the pictures how the three of you have bonded and just look so relaxed and happy together! I love reading about your days, too - what an adventure. It's very obvious you belong together and are a family.

Just thought I would let you know the Groton Tigers lost to the Tri Valley Mustangs in the state football tournament. The score was 20-14. You all look so happy!!! Take care and give Murphy a kiss for me.
