A couple of weeks ago my cousin, Katie came to stay with us for a night! These two share a special bond in that they have the same birthday...exactly 30 years apart! Katie has always been like an older sister to me, and after all these years of remembering November 17th when it came around, my daughter ended up being born on that very day!
Our friends Todd and Sarah were in town for the day and stopped by to meet Lael!
Side note: Many people ask us where we got the name "Lael" from, and we sort of have to credit this couple! Trey was in their wedding in the fall of '07, and while we were there we met a sweet friend of theirs named "Lael". Trey and I both agreed that we loved that name and when we got home I wrote it down in my list of potential baby names for the future. When we found out we were having a girl we remembered this name again and looked up the meaning. We found out that it is a Hebrew word that means "belonging to God". We knew then that we would use that name.
Last but not least, we went to Rock Hill a couple of weekends ago to celebrate Trey's mom's birthday (Mimi) and got this picture of Lael and me with her Aunt Ashley! :)
