On Saturday, we went to a party at Mike and Suzy's house for all of the Lee adults. That's where Sophia went swimming:
|First interaction with the swimming pool|
|Once we put her in here, she was pretty content to just chomp on those antennas.|
|After swimming, we switched over to the hot tub. It was just heating up so we got out before it actually got hot, but it felt like a nice bath. Too bad this is blurry!|
|Getting all dried off and lounging by the pool|
Apparently it's tradition in the Lee family for Grandpa Lee to give babies their first taste of ice cream. Sophia is probably too young for this, but if you know Sophia, you know that she loves food!
On Sunday, we went to church and then went to visit Jim and Lisa's family in the evening:
|I never cease to be amazed by the positions this girl likes to sleep in|
|We don't have a highchair at home. Doesn't she look so tiny in it!?|
|Reading books with Grandma Lee.|
|Don't be worried that I'm the one carrying the baby. I opted to her her on the trail down so that Russ had to take her on the trail back up.|
|She loves being in that front carrier!|
|She loved this toy. We need to get one. She loved bouncing in it and being able to turn herself around to look at us.|
On Saturday, we drove home. The drive down to Arizona was a grueling 12 hours, which is longer than any baby and parents should be in a car together (according to me), but the drive to the cabin took a couple hours off our trip so the way home was 9 hours and much more pleasant.
We don't know when we'll get back to Arizona again, but we're sure glad we went. It was especially nice to see Russ's parents so soon after returning home from their mission! Sophia warmed up to them and really enjoyed spending time with her Grandma Lee.
PS: Since we've been home, not only has Sophia abandoned her ways of waking up at 6am, but she has been sleeping in every day until at least 8!!
