Cousins in Italy

As we're getting the last minute things done to leave, I had my aunt and uncle (Marcia and Rick) and 3 cousins (Jen, Tiffany, and Ashley) that were in Italy on vacation that came to visit. It was a really fun day! We walked around Bologna, ate gelato, and Paolo made a really good Italian meal. It was fun to have family visiting. I'm actually suprised they weren't dead from jet lag, but they held out really well. I don't think I'm going to be that lucky going home.
This is at our friend's house. It's hard to say goodbye to all of our good friends.
Aaron is starting to grab blankets and cuddle them against his face. It's really cute.
Aaron is happy most of the time (except when he can't poop, poor kid!). He has the funniest expressions
He also loves looking at himself and his mom in the mirror. There are mirrors right next to his changing table and he loves to look at himself while he gets changed.

Moving to Utah

This at the wedding of our friends, Claudia and Giuseppe. The outfit was from when Aaron was blessed, but it actually fits him now. Aaron rolled over for the first time last week. He rolled from his tummy to his back 3 times in a row and hasn't done it since. He sits up by himself when propped against the couch. Today he took his first fall from the couch onto our marble floor. I felt like a bad mommy afterwards. It was bound to happen, but I still felt bad.
These are my friends, Germana (left) and Andrea (right). I stayed with them when I went on vacation in 2005 and met my husband Paolo. I'm really going to miss them when we leave.
Aaron is going to miss his uncle Daniele. For those who we haven't told yet, we're moving back to Salt Lake City from Italy. I'm leaving October 11th and Paolo is coming a month later. We're staying with my sister, Maureen, until we can find a place of our own. It's a lot harder than I thought leaving Italy, but I'm glad to go home and be near my family. It'll be nice for Aaron to be closer to his grandparents, and cousins.
