Off to Florida

On Tuesday, me Rachel & Grandma are headed to Florida to see my grandparents for a week.. They are getting older & are anxious to meet Rachel. My grandfather is not well, so before I go back to work, I need to go & see them... Looking foward to getting away for a few days.. Lots of pics to come

A OK from the nuerologist

I brought Rachel to the neurologist on Wed... an appt that I waited 2 months for, it was just for an evaluation. Poor baby had an EEG, she screamed & eventually cried herself to sleep but the doctor said that shes perfectly healthy.. THANK GOD!!!!

Rachel's Christening

last Sunday was Rachel's Christening... It was really beautiful, it was a private ceremony (which I wanted) & afterward we had a reception for about 170 people. Like my friend Kristi calls it.. Rachel's wedding. I bought her dress in Guatemala when I was on our pick up trip, my lawyer Maria took me to a dress shop. pictures don't do the dress any justice. Its all hand made, really beautiful.

I wanted to do something special for her even though she wont remember a thing, but its a miracle that shes actually home with us so huge is what I had in mind.. It was a sit down dinner with a dessert table along with a chocolate fountain... ( I know lots of ladies who would want to take that home )

Rachel was so good all day not even a peep out of her, at 930 at night she was still roaring to go.. The outfit that I changed her into at the party was from a couple we met in Guatemala on your 2nd visit trip.. They are still waiting to get out of PGN, they were the nicest people & I hope to see them again real soon.
Thanks Rachel & Travis

It was a great week all around, my Aunt Kara & Uncle Eric who live in Florida stayed with us for the week, this was the first time they met Rachel, we all had a lot of fun.
