As previously mentioned, Nate was a trooper at Disney and we were able to spend the entire day there. We left around dinner time, stopped for burgers at In-N-Out. Then we drove to Santa Monica for the real reason we were all in California. Meeting baby Millie.

We're happy to report that Nate, although mostly apathetic, seemed to enjoy the idea of his baby cousin and their meeting was peaceful. My attempts at getting a decent picture of the two of them, however, was not so successful. Although blurry, this is perhaps my favorite. Nate was kind of obsessed with the "baby's seat." When I held her, he liked to remind me that she had her own seat. I beleive he was suggesting she might be more comfortable there than in his mama's arms.
Millie is a little angel. She's quiet and calm, the perfect baby. I couldn't help the tears when we left. She'll be so much bigger the next time we see her! Until then, we try to talk with Nate about her everyday as we anxiously await our next visit.
As a happy coincidence, Meghan and Will were also in LA one of the days we were there. We were fortunate to have a Friday night dinner with the Beers, the Davises and the Schnakenburgs. Nate was in Aunt heaven.
