Well, my parents, brother, and sister-in-law left to go back to the States on Thursday. So I have spent the last couple of days recuperating (physically and emotionally). But now I believe I am back in business along with the rest of my family. (Although we miss you guys tremendously.) We all had a great visit and a wonderful time. Alex and Isabella really enjoyed playing with their Ka-Ka, Pa, Uncle Luke, and Aunt Jen. They love them so much! Erik and I were also able to catch a movie (Date Night!) while Mom and Dad kept the children. We want to thank them bunches for all of the HELP! Although I know they loved doing it. Everyone, along with Erik's parents, went to Stockholm this past Sunday for sightseeing and we also went to the amusement park, Gröna Lund. EVERYONE had a blast! Erik even got on a roller coaster! The weather wasn't the best. It rained OFTEN! But Dad and Luke were still able to help Claes and Erik with some of the outside work on the house. Dad painted our fence and built a gate and helped build a flower bed for me, and he and Luke both helped to lay sod in our yard. Thanks for all of your help while on vacation! We now have grass!

Isabella and Alex continue to do great. Isabella went back to the doctor on Thursday and we found out that she is allergic to eggs which she gets through breastmilk. So I have to stop eating eggs and anything that is made with eggs until I stop breastfeeding. Other than that she is fine. She has become very opinionated and she tends to show her disapproval often! She is such a lovable and happy baby though. Alex will be getting a haircut on Monday. He needs a haircut, but it will be cut shorter than usual in hopes that he will stop twirling his hair at the crown of his head. He is actually pulling it out and has made a small bald spot there. We hope this will solve the problem!

The Trosa Race was last night. It is a big event here with many runners! We had friends over for dinner (Pedro, Anna, Jesper, Maria, Joel-Jesper and Maria's son) and had a great time. Joel is only about 4 months younger than Alex so they played very well together. His family will be moving to Trosa in a month, so I am sure that we will have many play dates. The children went to bed, but the adults didn't get to bed until around 2:00 a.m.! What a night!
