Wow. So I feel like this blog has become my Everest. I’ve been daunted by how “far behind” I am in updating it… but each day that goes by makes that problem worse! So we will just have to accept that I’ve missed posting about a milestone or two and move on together… sound OK?
Without further ado or apologies… here are some highlights from the month of October! (yes, I realize we are half way through Nov)
– Cadence took her first trip (since being born) to New Jersey! I had a work event the second week in October so the three of us trucked up to NJ so that Brent had reinforcements for his all-day daddy-daughter time with Cadence. She (and he!) did great! After just a little bit of trial and error she took a bottle from her dad, took naps on schedule and was generally wonderful! At least that’s what I heard from her Mimi. She may be biased 😉 This trip also gave Cadence a great opportunity to meet more of her Franklin family for the first time. It was really a great week!

– After a great week in NJ we had a harrowing drive to suburban DC to see the other side of the family. Between rain, traffic, and a screaming baby it was a drive we hope NEVER to repeat. Cadence is definitely still 50/50 about her carseat. Yikes. However, it was worth it! She got to have some quality time with her Grandma and her Aunt Carolyn. They even babysat while Brent and I went to a Redskins game with some work contacts. It was a great weekend!!
