Crawling and Skyping

Well, Addison has been teasing us with it all week. But until today she would only crawl forward 2 or 3 strides before calling it quits. Today was a different story. Earlier this afternoon she did this to get her dolly...

And after her nap we had a Skype date with her birthparents and she did this...

Apparently an expensive laptop on the floor is worth crawling greater lengths for. Or maybe it was the wonderful people ON the expensive laptop she was crawling towards. Either way, our little one is officially a crawler.

To Indiana and back....and then back to Indiana

We've had a couple of crazy weeks here! And it's not over yet!

Labor Day weekend was a sad one for the Gafford family as David lost two different grandparents (Grandpa Gafford and Grandma Cox) only 2 days apart. So he and Addison hit the road on Labor Day and drove to Indiana (It took 14 hours!) for a week of visitations and funerals. My first day of school was the very next day, so I was unable to get away until Thursday at which point I flew one-way to join them through the weekend. The first couple of weeks of a new school year are tons of work and very busy days, but I'm glad that I was able to make it work to get away and be with the family. I know it meant a lot to the family that Addison was there. Many relatives were meeting her for the first time.

We drove back together on Sunday (making much better time without the holiday traffic) ready for another week of work/school the next morning. And now David hit the road again this morning to return to Indiana for a workshop/training in Church Communications at Grainger Church through the end of the week.

Here are some family pics we took while we were all together last week...
