My brother and sister-in-law also have a beautiful 15 month old girl named Pressley. Kate has adored her since the day she was born. There is a five year age difference between Kate and Pressley, so Vivian fits in great right in the middle of the two of them. The girls played so well all weekend and I really loved getting to spend this time with little miss Pressley, who is just a doll.

This weekend was the first time these cousins have had a chance to spend more than a few hours with Vivian (we do not live in the same city). I think if someone had seen them it would be hard to believe they haven't been together for years.
Teaching Vivi how to race
Teaching her to do the "We're #1". She copies everything everyone does and the kids thought it was hilarious that they taught her to do this.
We are coming up on our 3 month "Gotcha" anniversary. As we hit this milestone, I think of this:
Three months ago, there were no grandparents in Vivian's life. Now there are four.
Three months ago, there were no cousins in Vivian's life. Now there are ELEVEN.
Three months ago, there were no siblings in Vivian's life. Now there are three.
And three months ago, there was no mommy or daddy. Now there is Rob and I, and we are beyond grateful and humbled to be her parents.
People like to say that Vivian is lucky to have all of us, but the truth is (and I think all the cousins would agree) that we are all the lucky ones to have her. She brings out a wonderful and caring side in all these kids.
In other news, someone is turning 3 in a few days!!! Back with more on that later:)
