Today was a very low key day.

I wanted to keep a low profile as I am still recovering from the stomach flu, and we also want time with Caden, so Lynne and I skipped out on the scheduled site-seeing and stuck around the hotel. In the morning we walked around the nearby pedestrian mall with Mark and Moya doing some window shopping and stopping by the grocery store on the way back for necessities. I'm still not coherent enough, I forgot to bring along the camera, a sure sign that staying back was a good idea. The rest of the day was spent playing with and taking care of Caden, eating and exploring the hotel (you laugh, but this place is 39 stories tall, has 8 restaurants and about that many shops).

Caden playing with a rattle. Caden playing with a teething ring.

We took a lot of pictures of Caden, but because she is always laughing and playing so hard most of the shots end up looking like this one.

Blurry Caden playing.
I have to keep saying it -- she's beautiful, and looks thoroughly happy!  I couldn't be more happy for you.  This has definitely been a long gestation :)
