After leaving Houston after midnight Wednesday (or make that Thursday, since it was after midnight), I made it to Wichita for a week of time with family and friends. I was attending a conference for single women and made some new friends along with seeing a few I haven’t seen since college, which is slowly becoming a part of my distant past.
This trip also has given me a chance to see my niece, who I haven’t seen since she was a few days old. I’m thankful to have a friend with a baby that is only a few weeks older than her, so I generally know where she is developmentally, but that’s no substitute for the real thing! Getting to spend time with smiley Bean has been awesome. I can’t wait for her to be old enough to really talk with us (though her babbling is definitely still cute)!
