Scotland Baptism

We arrived safely in Scotland yesterday afternoon. Isla did very well on the flights and has been such a trooper. We can tell she's still pretty tired and are trying to get her back on her regular routine. Today we had her baptism at St. Peter's church in Galashiels. She slept through most of the service and was a little angel at the Champagne and cake reception afterwards. We got out for some fresh air this evening for a walk near the Eildons. We're trying to get our time here all planned out so we make the most of our time!

Real food time

Well, I'm not sure if rice cereal is really considered 'real food' but its the first step in getting Isla to eating real people food. She's been really interested in watching us eat, so we knew she was ready. She ate like a champ and loved it!

Weekend fun with the Pfalmers

Jorja, Tatum and Isla

While Zums was out and about most of the weekend entertaining, Isla and I spent alot of time hanging out with my dear friend Brandy and family. Isla LOVES all the kiddos and the wildness of the Pfalmer house. The kids take turns entertaining her and making her laugh and smile. So happy and blessed that they live just 5 minutes away.

Brown Brothers in Colorado

More visitors from Scotland this past weekend, as Kevin and Mike Brown visited us. They are over in the States for 3 weeks on holiday and road tripped out from DC. We took them up to the mountains on Saturday and the boys made it all the way up to the top of Mt. Evans where it was freezing. Isla enjoyed the extra company in the house for the weekend!

4 1/2 months

Isla is now 4 1/2 months old and entering a really fun stage. She laughs and smiles and fills our lives with so much joy. She likes to sit in her Bumbo on the island in the kitchen and watch me cook and clean. We hit the pool this week and she fell asleep while playing in the pool, so she took a little nap on the lounger in the shade. She hits the gym with me each morning, as the gym has a nice childcare center, though she is asleep most of the time while there. When she's awake, though, she likes to watch the toddlers playing. She's still sleeping like a dream from 8pm to 6am each night, so we are a happy house!

4th of July

Isla's first 4th of July was spent at the horse races. We had Uncle Twicki in town from Scotland. That evening we had a bbq with several couples and lots of kiddos at our house. Unfortunately, it was a rainy evening, so there were no fireworks or sitting on our new patio. Still, it was great to have everyone over! The next day we headed to the Cherry Creek Arts Festival where we had perfect weather!
