August has been a busy month for us!

Liliane Rose was born on Aug. 2nd (7 lb. 10 oz., 20 in.), and she has been ruling our lives ever since.  The only schedule we’ve been able to follow is: feed the baby when she wants to be fed.  But she has been quite the model baby, and we have loved every minute with her.   I’m back at work (BJU Press Distance Learning) for the next 4 weeks to finish out my contract with the University, and Guillaume is home all day babysitting.  It’s been a bit of an adjustment for me, to go back onto a schedule, after spending 3 wonderful “vacation” weeks on no schedule.  I think it’s been an adjustment for Guillaume too, but he’s been doing a great job; besides taking care of the baby all day, he’s also gotten a lot of projects and chores done around the apartment.   He is just an amazing husband and daddy!

Next week on the 31st we’ll be heading back to Atlanta to the French consulate to hopefully get all of Liliane’s French documents and to get my Visa.  It’s just 4 weeks until we leave Greenville.   I think the fact that I’ll be leaving the US for an indeterminate amount of time is finally starting to sink in.  Wow… just 5 more weeks until I will be living in France.  I really should be practicing my French!

I may not have time for many posts before we leave, but I promise I will post frequently once we are settled in France.   We want to keep in touch with all of our friends, and I hope our friends will want to keep in touch with us!  Also, as added incentive to view my blog, I plan on posting lots of cute baby pictures 🙂
