Grandparents!

We were very blessed to have some very special visitors in July and August.

Danny’s mom was here for Sophia’s birth of course. She spent most of her visit cleaning, washing, and sorting or soothing Sophia or playing with Eliana. It was a huge blessing.

After Beth left, we had a few days to realize how much we needed our next visitor – Katie’s mom! She spent lots of time playing playdough with Eliana and babysitting so that Danny and I could get back into language classes. We were also able to do some sight-seeing.

And if all that wasn’t enough, Danny’s mom and dad were able to come here after their missionary retreat in Italy. We took the opportunity to rent a car and see some of the country.

Praise God that Sophia and Eliana were able to have such great grandparent time!

Family photos

We took a new family picture since we became four, and I also took some photos of Sophia at one month. Her Papa also managed to catch one of her first smiles.
