Wedding!

This is probably of limited interest, but hey. Also in October (it was a busy month), our niece Alli got married at the George Washington Hotel in Washington, PA. (Her dog is also named George Washington.)

The wedding was, of course, an excuse for a baby fashion show. ;-)

The first was a hand-me-down from Caitlin and the dress has a skirt with very Padme-picnic-like fabric!

Elena did great during the wedding, until a stubborn poop she’d be brewing deciding to make itself known and she got uncomfortable and unhappy quickly. So we whisked her out to our rental car (rented to make the long drive easier for ourselves) so she could get the poop out and we could change her. She was fine after that. But of course this happened right during the vows. (We were in the way back so we could get her out quickly if we needed to.)

Back at the hotel to rest up for a few… and change her dress, since she managed to spit up on it and at her age, spit-up actually smells like vomit, so yay. :-/

But that’s ok, we got to use dress #2, a cute Hello Kitty dress gifted to us by a friend whose daughter outgrew it before she could wear it.

Apparently a cookie bar is a thing at Pittsburgh weddings?

It was pretty cool.

All the tables were named after Presidents.

The one pic I got of us. I had a really cute E-shakti dress that I like a lot and managed to not get more than this photo of it. Oh well.

My niece Talia got this one of Elena and her Grandma at the church.

Elena did so well at the reception. She ate the smoked gouda mac & cheese and all the other food, which I don’t have pics of, but it was good. Everyone wanted to hold her and she was cool with it. From family members she rarely sees to co-workers of Doug’s brother. She’s pretty chill. She was super tired by the end of it, but she loved looking at everything and didn’t make a single fuss. Such a good baby!
