Here is Chiara with Norah one afternoon.

Here is Jamie with Norah. Jamie is our regular babysitter. She comes every Tuesday to watch Norah while Chiara is teaching.
She is tons of fun, and Norah recognizes her when she comes now.
Jamie was accepted to graduate school in Oregon, so she will be leaving this summer. We are sad to see her go!
More visitors! Francesca and Jarrod came by on the way back from their trip out to Colorado. We had a wonderful time with them. Jarrod and Francesca were finally able to procure Riverside, Iowa T-shirts. In case you don't know, Riverside is the FUTURE birthplace of the Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek. He will be born there in 2029. Ask Cecca or Jarrod about it if you want to know more!
We also celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a fabulous Mexican dinner (and Margaritas of course!).
Norah is venturing away from the coffee table now. She scoots over to her toy bin to check it out. She still always has to hang on to something, but we think it is more for confidence than for support.
Norah's other favorite pastime (beside swinging) is taking things OUT of their containers. She hasn't figured out (or started enjoying) putting the things BACK yet!
Jake (who we taught with in China) and his wife Catherine and their two children, Grace and Matthew, came to visit us in Iowa City while they were in the USA for a wedding! It was wonderful to see them and their growing children! Here is Matthew trying out Norah's bouncy seat. He was entertained in here for quite a while!!!
