We spent the afternoon at a family celebration for Dav's cousin's graduation. Super mama of 3 who just finished her degree in special ed. all before the age of 30.
I can't describe how special it is for both Dav and I, who grew up in small families, to have Tesla, and now Aila, grow up with this giant, warm, and loving family clan in the Bay Area that we are a part of. Among the adults, there must have been 15 kids and babies (from family and friends). For Aila, this was pretty much her first experience being surounded by so many kids and babies. She thrived!
And, she got to ride her first wheels.
Aila is still rather new to the Callaghan clan. She is close to Gran Marie, but is just getting to know everyone else (got held by quite a few smitten folks today). Telsa, on the other hand, is totally at home with the Callaghans. Here she is with her best bud cousins. I love that they truly are growing up together. Tonight, Maria-Rose is spending the night chez nous.
