Last week I got to spend some nice quality time with my favourite little love bug, Lena Walker Koelsch.
Lena is the 6-month old daughter of Emily Walker, one of my roommates and closest friends from Rhodes, and her husband Joe. After she was born, I spent a lot of time hanging out with Walker, but Lena mostly slept through those visits, so it wasn't really until last week that we got to spend some time together.
Knowing that I am always on the lookout for baby- and pet-sitting jobs to earn a little extra cash, Walker very generously calls on me whenever she needs a sitter on days that her nanny doesn't come. I am always up for spending some time with Lena, so it works out pretty well for all parties involved.
I hung out with her for a few hours on Thursday and then all day on Friday, and we spent the hours going for walks, playing with crinkly books, and mostly just laughing at each other, because we're both pretty freaking hilarious.
We're going to be hanging out some more in the next few weeks, so there will be plenty more pictures to document her ever-growing adorableness. Until then, I think these will suffice.
other highlights included: reinstated Tuesday Night dinners with the ladies; had lunch with Erin Petty, a sweet friend from Helena; uncle from India came to visit; summer rain; finally tried ribs from Germantown Commissary [verdict: awesome].
It was a pretty low-key week, which was just what I needed. Back to the grind - and the job applications - this week!
