Playing Catch-Up (A little!)

I spaced out a little bit on doing yesterday's blog entry, but there wasn't a whole lot of excitement going on, so I'm combining the two for the entry today.  I guess it means that you get two pictures!

Sunday was a pretty typical one, going out for a car ride in the afternoon and all of that good stuff.  You didn't get to partake in the pool activities that your siblings did, but you were just as content to lounge in the comfort of the air conditioned house.

We'd set up the pack n play in our room, and attempted to get you to sleep in there...even after you'd gone to sleep in the swing, the transfer didn't last more than a half hour or so.  Perhaps it was because you were hungry...who knows.  We'll keep trying!

And for the daily picture...

And on to today, Monday.  You got to venture out with Kaitlyn and Mommy to lunch with Mommy's former co-workers!  You were so content, and people at the next table over kept commenting on what a chilled out little lady you are.  You enjoyed being passed around and smiling and cooing at everyone.

Not much of a nap today, so you were EXHAUSTED come about 7:30.  Tomorrow...daycare!  Not that I want you to be over tired, but sleeping better at night could be a potential bonus!

Today's picture now!

Happy Saturday!

Today was a pretty uneventful Saturday, like most Saturdays.  We haven't gone anywhere terribly exciting the past weekend or two, just because we're gearing up for vacation soon!  Actually, that's probably not entirely the reason, but it will do for now.

We went to Target today, and I wore you around.  You seemed to enjoy looking around at everyone (facing out in the carrier), but fussed a little when I wasn't moving.  We went for a ride up South Mountain, and you were wide awake, watching things go by but pretty content nonetheless.

You were pretty happy overall today.  Lots of giggling (some day I'll catch that giggle in a video!) and smiles.  We set up your pack-n-play to see if you'd like sleeping in there, but when we put you in there, you woke up pretty quickly.  It was still early, so you got a bath (with help from Kaitlyn) and all moisturized down before bed.  Not a bad way to end the evening!

Well, we'll see what's in store for tomorrow, and Monday is a big day, since we're going out to lunch with some of mommy's former co-workers!

Laurel's Happy Friday

Happy Friday!  This is day one of mommy's little blogging challenge (to post for each of the kids). Starting at the end and working Daniel will be last tonight!

This week started off pretty well.  Monday we went to your followup doctor's appointment to check on your ear infection from earlier.  All cleared up!  You gained a whopping 0.5oz (I'm being goofy here) since you were last weighed (you were 12lbs, 3oz on May 6th...12lbs 3.5oz on May 16th).  No biggie!  At the earlier appointment, the doctor gave you a referral for physical therapy too, since she noticed that you lean to the right and the muscles on that side are super tight.  So we'll be getting into that soon (hopefully!).

The rest of the week was pretty good, too.  Daycare was Tuesday and Thursday, and when we picked you up on Thursday, you were happy as a clam doing some tummy time resting on a pillow.

Today was also the first day of your brothers' summer vacation, so all four of you were home today.  We'll have to figure out some fun things to do this summer!

In any is your daily picture...snooooooozing away...
