All is quiet in our little household...even Sofia is sleeping! :) We have been so blessed to have had so many visitors over the last 6 weeks that it seemed weird to wake up yesterday morning knowing that no one would be staying with us this week.
We enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving week beginning with my sister's quick weekend visit and full week of Chris's parents and sister. Not a moment was spared holding and staring at Sofia, of course! It has become really special to watch our family members get to see our daughter for the first time. It is something I will never be able to forget.
With all the family in town, we took the opportunity to attend a Broncos game - with Sofia in tote of course! Bundled in layers, we strapped her into the baby carrier and took turns during the halves of the game holding her. At just 5 weeks old, Sofia might have been the youngest Broncos fan ever to attend a game! :)
Other highlights of the week included: trips to some great restaurants all over Denver, shopping at the new mall near our house, lunch and shopping at the famed Pearl Street in Boulder, tea for Mary and Lindsey at the Brown Palace Hotel, fabulous Thanksgiving dinner and LOTS of hanging out. It really was a great week.
Now, Sofia and I are getting used to being by ourselves again. We have our routine and somehow the days seem to pass in the blink of an eye. It is weird not talking to any adults all day long, but somehow the cooing, lip-smacking and occasional cry seems to substitute for "big words" just fine. :) I'm totally diggin' this mom thing.
Here are some pictures from the week below. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Day table. The china and silver on the table was passed down to me from my Aunt Miriam. It belonged to her grandmother.
Mmm food! Stacey, Lindsey and I set to dig in for dinner. :)
