This past Thursday was my 35th birthday. It was the best birthday I could ask for! Not only did I get to spend it with Brian & Annabelle, but on top of that she gave me the best gift (don't get me wrong, Brian got me nice things too :-) ). In the morning when I was making her laugh I got to hear her giggle out loud for the first time! It was such a wonderful sound, it almost brought a tear to my eye. That night we went out for dinner and once again she was an angel. She was awake for part of dinner then drifted off for a nap the rest of the time. Her being so good is giving us confidence to take her out more and more often and to nicer restaurants.
This past weekend we went to friends of ours, the Jones', house to celebrate birthdays, it was mine Thursday and Randy's Saturday. We had a great time and Annabelle slept in her pack and play the entire night. We didn't get home until 1:30am so I fed her before putting her to bed so we could hopefully get past our 6am feeding. It ended up only extending it an hour, but then she fell back asleep till 10:30 (and so did I). We are enjoying the jogging stroller now that we are getting nicer weather, I'm still just walking with it because her head bounces around a bit if I jog. Saturday afternoon while Brian was working we walked 5 miles. Today I took the newborn sling out of her bathtub and she took a bath in just her tub. She really enjoyed it and even kicked her feet in the water while I was washing her. I did take a censored pic with the frog washcloth for the blog. The other pictures from this week are just some random pics of little outfits and smiles. I love the sweet smile she has in the picture of her in her crib. That's the smile I see after every nap and every morning. She's such a happy baby, we are so very lucky!
