Over the 4th of July weekend, I met my niece Anna Louise! It's official: she's as cute in person as in her pictures. What fun to watch her and hold her. She already knows what she likes (eating, sleeping, mom and dad) and what she doesn't like (being wet, being hungry, and getting passed around from person to person). It was neat to see my brother and sister-in-law caring for her with such gentleness and skill. They clearly know her different cries and love her lots!
This is my favorite picture from the weekend I spent with Anna. Grandpa held her after lunch and they both fell asleep.
