Day 19 - The adoring look Cora gives us when she is in the Ergo. Her head tilts back and she just stares up at Jacob or me with a look of pure love :)
Day 20 - This mild-fall weather of low 60s, with crisp cool air. It made for a picturesque stop at Stanford and great photo ops.
Day 21 - I'm so, so grateful we live in a small-ish city with no hills and no need to take public transit. Both of those things with two small children and a stroller are not easy!
Day 22 - Old friends. We were able to hang out with some college and TFA-Hawaii-era friends and it was really great to catch up. I loved our friend Andrew's comment: "It was surreal to see Jacob tucking in a small child." Haha, I bet!
Day 23 - LEGOs - we brought a small number and they provided lots of entertainment! We also went to a wine tasting in Sonoma where there was a basket of big boy LEGOs that transfixed Jack for our entire visit.
Day 24 - Time alone. I spent 2 hours alone at a coffee shop. I can't remember the last time I was by myself (work doesn't count!) I could definitely do this more often...
Day 26 - My travel partner (the adult one) - we made a great team on this trip and were able to laugh a lot despite the craziness/stress of various situations.
Day 27 - My mom! (I love my dad too but he's not coming until Friday). She arrived tonight! Talk about the well-timed arrival of reinforcements! I got 4 hours of sleep last night due to a delayed flight, so I'm excited for the help. And there isn't anyone you'd rather have around than Beth Ann Owen to help get an event together (i.e. Jack's birthday party!)
