The newest member of the pride…

This past weekend we went to State College for the annual BrewExpo. I did not attend this year because we had Rylee with us, but Bill went with some of our friends and had a great time.

We got to town Friday afternoon which gave us time to visit the Lion Shrine and get some photos. Rylee was awake and in a great mood so we got some fun shots. I’m sure there will be many more over the years. Here is her debut as a lion cub….

I can’t believe that in exactly two weeks I’ll be sitting at my desk, and not the desk I’m at now. Instead I’ll be sitting at my desk on the 7th floor of Parkview Tower. I will be in the middle of my first day back to work since Rylee’s arrival. And hopefully I won’t be sittingĀ at my desk in tears. I’m already starting to get weepy when I think about going back to the office on August 7th. From talking to my friends the first few days back are no joke. They are the toughest days of your life. Wonderful.

Rylee is getting so big. At her last doctor appointment, a few weeks ago, she was 12lbs and 22″ long. She is staying awake more during the day and trying to sleep longer at night. We really love that last part! Here’s a photo of a recent nap time in our house.

Today is Bill’s birthday. Happy Birthday to you from Rylee and me. We love you lots!
