I am so excited that we are starting to venture out more as a family and becoming more comfortable with life with a newborn. It's been fun and challenging trying to adjust to the new "normal". It's amazing how different everything is. Just trying to get out of the house brings a whole new meaning to getting ready to go out.
On Friday, we hung out on the couch as a family and watched the snow come down. We caught up on our DVR and went to bed early. At least Jeff did, Jillian still wants to nurse for an hour and a half at night and still doesn't want to go to bed until after midnight. Hopefully we get this turned around by the time I go back to work in March!!! Jill also had a little baby workout in her gym. She is starting to grab on to a few of the low hanging toys which is so cute! I love watching her look around at everything and watch the blinking light on top of the gym. She makes the cutests noises and starts kicking her little legs like crazy.
We had a lazy Saturday morning relaxing on couch with Jill and listening to all of the neighbor's snow blow their driveway's from the Friday evening storm. Jill just loves hanging out on her Daddy's lap on the couch.
On Saturday, my girlfriends Erika and Liberty stopped by to meet Jillian. We all met as sorority sister's back in college and still live relatively close to one another here in Cleveland. Erika and I also work for the same company and live in the same city. Jillian was so happy to meet her new friends and showed Liberty some love by filling her diaper right on her lap. That's my girl!
On Sunday, Jeff and I actually had a little outing of our own and attended our church's Baptism class. Jeff's parents came over to watch Jill which gave us some time to run a few errands after class as well. It's the first time that I have actually rode up front in the passenger seat beside Jeff since Jill was born. I typically ride in the back with Jill to and from doctor's appointments. We haven't figured out yet how to rig the baby car mirror. Any recommendations on a good one? The one we purchased is just not working with our Saturn Vue and we either need to buy a new one or figure something out with the one we have. It's amazing how the littlest things change when you have a newborn! Jeff, Jillian and I headed over to the neighbor's house on Sunday night for the Superbowl. Our first neighborhood outing as a family! Our neighbor's watched my pregnant belly grow throughout the Summer and Fall months and were so happy to finally meet her!
