Yesterday my mom, my cousin Amy Beth, Josie and I took a short trip out to Monrovia to visit my cousin Molly and her new baby Vienna. My cousin Rachel and her 8-month-old Sophia were also there. We all had a great time catching up, and mostly meeting Vienna. She is the same size Josie was when she was born ... and already I can't believe Josie was ever that small! Molly had a somewhat tumultuous pregnancy, requiring lots of bed rest and doctor's appointments every two days. And even when she was born she was kept in the NICU for two days before Molly could even hold or nurse her. However, everyone is home now, and everyone is healthy! And Vienna is just as precious as any newborn ever was. Here's a few pictures from our day. (Make sure to play the short video at the bottom, too ... I think Sophie and Josie are going to be great friends.)

The girls: Vienna, Josie, and Sophie

Sophie just thought Josephine was the greatest thing since plastic keys. You have to listen hard for her laugh through all the adults talking and laughing at her ... apparently Josie is really funny.
