October 7

Last weekend was just full of “firsts”!

Friday you slept in your crib for the first time during your afternoon nap. You slept so well that I was brave enough to let you sleep in there during the night also! I was nauseous a few times, but you did great and it feels good for Daddy and I to have our bedroom back. Your bassinette, pump, suction, and soundmaker had taken over most of the room. And it is so nice to be able to put you to bed and then move around the house and talk freely with no worries of waking you.

Then Sam and Jason came to see you this weekend! We have been trying since you came home from the hospital to find a weekend that worked for all of us, and finally it happened. You were a very sweet girl and I was hoping you would convince them to start having babies so that you could have more playmates…they have sworn off kids any time soon, but we know how that goes, don’t we? (Wink, wink!)

Saturday you were invited to a friend’s birthday party for the first time. Elijah turned one year old this week! I just can’t believe it. Mommy took care of him while his parents went to work when he was three and four months old and you were still in my tummy. He couldn’t be any cuter and I think he has a crush on you! Either that or he really likes your stroller since we needed to stop him from climbing inside with you!

Since Elijah’s party was at the pool, you put on your suit, sunglasses and sunscreen and headed outside. I dipped your pretty toes in the water, but it was too cold for you. So instead we sat under the umbrella and played in the gorgeous weather with Sam and Grammy.

Later that night, Sam helped with bathtime and took some pictures of you with her new fancy camera. Mommy wants a new fancy camera for Christmas so I can learn how to take lots of pictures of you…tell Daddy for me, ok?

And then Sunday we all went to the museum for the first time! You were such an angel…quiet as a mouse until it was time to come home. It was a couple hours past naptime and you were in meltdown mode. I am pretty sure your crying the entire way back solidified Sam and Jason’s resolve to not have a baby right now. When we arrived home I walked you straight into your room, changed your diaper, laid you down, and you were asleep before I shut the door behind me. I don't blame you for being exhausted from the weekend!

What a big girl!!! She loves her new bed!! I remember how well Lillie slept in her own bed the first time we put her in there! And what a good feeling for you to get your room back! (just wait until TOYS take over your room... Man, we will never have a room to ourselves!)
PS- we missed seeing you last night at church. I can't wait to show you all of these clothes and SHOES!!!)

I am so proud of her and all her new abilities!! I of course would be more than happy to make a few informed suggestions on a new camera. It is a MUST in all homes :-)

What a cute little swimsuit and glasses! Sounds like a fun fun day out! Classes end here around Dec. 5th, then hopefully sometime before Jan. 12th Rahul and I can come visit Baby Audrey and her lovely parents who we haven't seen since May! PS also loved the pedicure pics!
