18 weeks

Technically I guess this is an 18 1/2 week update but we were out of town until yesterday. We traveled down to my parents house for Easter with Annabelle, Clyde & Apollo.  I of course over packed since it was our first trip but it was ok because Brian bought a car top carrier for the Tuscon so we had plenty of room.  Annabelle was a great traveler, she slept the entire 2 1/2 - 3 hours to Erie and back home! 

While in Erie Annabelle got to meet her Uncle Curt, Aunt Tina, cousins Curtis & Sydney and her Great PaPa Walt & Great Grandma Shirley.  She also spent a lot of time with her Grandma Linda and PaPa Elder.  I didn't get to hold her much with all the family around.  Everyone even took turns feeding her (although I think Grandma Linda fed her most).  We had a wonderful Easter, the Easter bunny visited her while we were there, she got a few books, stuffed animals, and leg warmers.

On a side note we had our 4 month appointment last week.  She is growing fast, 11 pounds 3oz and just over 24 inches long.  She got her shots and we discussed introducing cereal, we are going to wait until she is 6 months, she's doing great with the new formula & still getting breastmilk too.  She still needs to get better head control before we start her on any solids.

I've included a bunch of pictures from the weekend, I had a few Easter outfits for Annabelle.  We colored eggs Saturday, even though Annabelle didn't help, she just napped while we decorated them for her.  While we were there my mom & dad got me a birthday cake and we had an early birthday celebration.  The other pictures are mostly of all the family.

I think we all had a great Easter weekend...everyone enjoyed Annabelle. She was a "perfect" weekend guest...great little sleeper through the night. ♥
