A visit from the Colorado sister

I have 2 sisters and they are both my older sisters. So sometimes I refer to them (to those that don’t know them) as my Texas sister and my Colorado sister. Well, this weekend we had a visit from my Colorado sister and her sweet girls. They are: Amanda (the sister) and Hope and Bella (the nieces). Hope and Bella are getting prepared to be big sisters. Hope for the second time and Bella for the first. Amanda and Loren (the bro-in-law) have started the process to adopt their third little one. And we are so excited. Bella really has no interest in a younger sibling at this point. But Hope is pumped! I think she is ready to be the boss of somebody new. So she couldn’t get enough of Holden. Lugging around his 25 pound body, wanting to hold him, feed him a bottle. We even let her “babysit” one night while we played a game at the kitchen table. Nana paid her a dollar. We had a fun visit. Thanks for stopping by on your way to Texas.

Looks like you had fun! I'm glad you guys got to see each other. It's hard living far away from family!
