It's been such an amazing adventure watching our baby houseguest, Nouri, grow up before our eyes. I know he's only been here for about 2 1/2 months,  but that's a lot in baby years! I feel like he gets a little bigger everyday and I'm hoping that any second now, he'll take his first step or say his first real word (German or english). I feel like he's become really accustomed to Chris and I (and our cool iPhones) and I think that's pretty special. You learn a lot by living with people but living with people and their baby has been a huge and positive learning experience. Can't wait to have our own some day! Until then, I'm working on Nouri's first word to be "California". Or "Jamie is the best" will do.
