We’re still staying close to home these days. We’ve been out a couple of times for doctors appointments and when we have been we’ve been sure to keep baby girl covered up and out of the germs reach! :) We’ll start to venture out more once she hits that 8 week mark…maybe…I still don’t know how it will be to keep up with a three year old and a newborn, so we’ll see how brave I am. :)
Here’s what we’ve been up to…
We spent New Years Eve at my in-laws.
My New Year’s Cuties
They do fondue with some friends every year and invited us to crash this year. :) Dinner and dessert was so good and we even got to spend some time with Sam, who was in town. AB had the best time playing dress-up with her cousin, Gracie.
Maybree had her two week well check. We switched pediatricians recently and couldn’t be happier. (Our previous dr., who we’ve been using since Cooper was born, and we LOVED, retired…I wasn’t really happy with the rest of the group she was in, so we decided to switch). We LOVE our new doctor and the entire practice. I’m SO glad we switched and so thankful for a good friend’s recommendation of them.
Nurse Jayne taking AB’s blood pressure
Since we chose to spread our vaccinations out, we are a little behind on them, so she had to get a couple of shots. She also had to have her finger pricked and I was so shocked that she didn’t even cry during that! The shots were a different story. Thankfully my mom went with us. I knew she would need to held and carried (and since I still can’t pick her up, Mom went with us). We were both glad Grammy was there.
Maybree wore jeans for the first time to AB’s dr appointment and that’s definitely a recordable milestone. :)
AB had some Christmas cash, so last weekend we took her to Target to let her pick out a new game for her “tablet.” (Maybree & I sat in the truck while DW took AB in the store…and AB was the cutest thing walking in with her daddy with her owl hat and piggy back pack on…) Precious! (The owl hat was a Christmas present from Aunt Kristy & Uncle Beau and she wears it ALL the time…the pig back pack was also a Christmas present, from Aunt Nen & Uncle Adam…AB takes it around everywhere, too!) :)
AB’s been doing lots of playing with all her new Christmas toys. She’s thrown countless tea parties in our living room over the past few days and at every one, she serves up birthday cake. It’s always someone else’s birthday, too…and we have to sing, of course.
I’m pretty sure that although what we’ve been up to lately isn’t the most exciting, it’s some of my most favorite days.
