Drew and Miss Abby

Drew met his new cousin, Abby, on Saturday. Miss Abby was born June 13th and is a mere 5 weeks old. Drew will be 9 months old this week and he runs roughly quadruple Abby's size. Looking at her, I am not sure Drew was ever that small. 

Drew was very enamored with her. (Right after this picture was taken he grabbed a handful of her hair!)

He just wanted to touch her and play with her.

Which is exactly why he is being restrained by his dad in this picture.

Maybe when Abby is a few months older they can play together. She'll probably even be able to take Drew out!

My new garden

We have been working hard on trying to get our yards put back together after a year-long sprinkler project. My husband has been slaving away installing new sprinklers, laying sod, sorting gravel, building retaining walls... and my contribution is a cinder block succulent garden that is on our front stoop. Not quite as impressive as laying 1200 sq feet of sod but who's keeping score? Not me! 

Maybe I'll be fair & show you the finished backyard too.... but not yet.. let's bask in my garden just a little longer...
