Busy trip to Atlanta

Lila and I got back to our Texas home last night after being in Atlanta visiting friends and family for a week. We started the week off with a birthday party for one of my best friend's little girl, Presleigh. She was so funny with her smash cake, and she loved playing with Lila. 

Thursday, Lila got to see her Great Papa, Great Grandmother, Mamu, and Big Pop at lunch. We had a good visit and great food! Friday, Lila and I both started getting a cold that lasted us the rest of the trip. Poor thing didn't sleep very well the whole time we were there, but we both feel much better now, and she's back to sleeping her 9 hours at night. We spent Friday afternoon at my grandmama's house in Stone Mountain, and had a huge lunch at a local restaurant there. My grandmama loves to order appetizers, and she ordered 4 for the table...there were only 3 adults eating! It was so delicious, and we were stuffed to say the least! My grandmama got to hold Lila for a long while, and Lila loved feeling her face (she loves to touch faces!)

Saturday we both weren't feeling well so we took it easy and relaxed around my parent's house. My friend, Lauren, got married that evening, so Lila stayed with her Grammy while I went to the wedding. Sunday, we had Lila's 6-month portraits done by Laura Negri at a park in Atlanta. She was pretty sleepy for the first half of the session, and then gave some good smiles towards the end. I can't wait to see how they turn out! Monday, my friend and college roommate, Rachel stopped by my parent's house to visit.  Lila fell asleep in her arms as we were talking (which she NEVER does). She loves her Auntie Rachel! We took her to eat at a Mexican restaurant and devoured our weight in cheese dip (love the white cheese-all we have is yellow Tex-Mex cheese here in Texas). That evening, we met Lila's Mamu, Big Pop, and Josh's cousins, Bill and Vickie, down at the Cheesecake Factory at Perimeter Mall. The Cheesecake Factory is my favorite restaurant, so of course the food was delicious, and it was so good to see Lila's other grandparents once more before we headed back to Texas. 

Lila spent most of the day on Tuesday with her Grammy while I had a dentist appointment (boo!). After that, we met her granddaddy at my other favorite restaurant, Thai Spice, at the Forum. I have to make all of the favorite restaurant runs when I'm in town! We had a great visit in Atlanta, despite being sick, and look forward to coming back in a few weeks so that we can make a trip to Auburn for the weekend!
