41 Weeks

Favorite activity: Splashing in the dogs' water dish, making a giant mess with her "dishes" in the kitchen
Favorite food: scrambled eggs and pear
Favorite spot: floor = win!
Naughtiest moment: Splashing in the dogs' water dish!
Cutest moment: Playing blocks with her friends at the Halloween party
Important milestones: Pulling herself up into a sitting postion, pushing herself up on hands and knees (not moving yet, though!)
How Mom's Feeling: I'm okay. We had a good week and nice weekend. Very busy! On Saturday, Lorelei went to Lovejoy's for her first high tea (to celebrate our friend Gladys' graduation). It was a ton of fun, and Lorelei loved it! She was such a sweetheart, eating her very own cream cheese and mandarin orange sandwiches and some scone. I'm always a trifle nervous taking her places like that. It's kind of loud, cluttered, with a lot of people in a close space--very stimulating. I always worry that even though she normally does a great job--especially if she has just had a nap (which she had)--that she will flip out and start wailing. Didn't happen. She was smily and flirty and everyone to our friends, the wait staff, and the ladies at the table next to us just loved her!

On Sunday, we went to my mom's group baby Halloween party. Lots of fun. LOTS of babies! Normally, it's just the moms and babies at our meetups, but most of the dads joined in for this one. It's always kind of entertaining to see the dads talking together with the babies, trying to find common ground. You can just tell that we're all after the same thing: trying to find another couple with a baby that you both can connect with. Finding new mom friends is a lot like dating, but it can be done. I seem to have formed a little group of like-minded moms to spend time with. Finding new "couple friends with a baby" is so much harder!

We have had our fair amount of frustration this weekend, though. Daylight Savings Time. It never really bothered me one way or another. But now we are on a schedule. And now that schedule is out of whack. Where we normally we waking up around 7:45-8 am, and napping around 10:30-11 am and going to bed at 8:30 pm, we are now waking up around 6:30-7 am, napping at 10 am and going to bed at 7:30 pm. Truth be told, I don't really mind the 6:30 am wakeup, it's just the nap time and bedtime that's a challenge. 10 am is right when story time starts and it's hard to get dinner ready and bathtime done by 7:30. So we're adjusting.

Pretty sure the dads had more fun with the blocks than the babies!

Mmm...tasty foam blocks!
