(Long) Weekend Update

This was a super duper relaxing weekend. On Friday, we mostly just hung out.

On Saturday, Husband went to the driving range while Baby and I stayed home. It was quite the lazy day. We stayed in bed all morning. Then, we got up right before Husband got home. Then, I took a nap.

On Sunday, Husband played golf. while Baby and I took a walk. This was the first walk where Baby sat in the stroller like a big girl and not in the carrier portion. At first, she wasn't sure what to do, but I think she liked the different point of view. We walked to
Chipotle and then to the mall. Baby enjoyed a teething biscuit while I had a burrito bol. Then, we bought Husband some socks, and Baby got a new outfit (stay tuned next weekend for why).

On Monday, Labor Day, we cleaned the house (or mostly cleaned... I still have the bedroom to finish dusting). Husband hosted his Fantasy Football draft at our house. So, it was a quiet day.

Now, lately, Baby has been a happy baby. She always has been. She wakes up and smiles. She hangs out with us and laughs. However, lately, she won't sleep in her crib. She is tired. She rubs her eyes and will fall asleep while we rock her, while she's in her playpen, or while she's in her bouncy chair. The minute she's in her crib or we place her in her crib while sleeping, she flips out. So, it's made nap time and, even worse, bed time, impossible!

So, Baby will be hanging out with us in her chair and, next thing you know, she'll be folded over and sleeping. Then, you touch her and she's up and it's time to party.

I'm sure it's just a phase. Meanwhile, we're just tired. Still, it is nice to have her cuddly when she's tired so I guess there's a positive spin on things.

In case I haven't mentioned it lately, she's the cutest little thing ever. In most of her pictures she looks just like you (and that's not just me being a dumb white girl who thinks all Asians look alike--I think she looks like YOU) but there was one in a recent post where she looked very much like Husband (not sure if you want real names left out or not, so...)

Also, I'm too lazy to go back and post the comment on the correct post, but somewhere I have a "traditional under the flag at the cottage" picture of you, me and Adriana from about 16 years ago. Next time I see it I'll e-mail it to you.

Arg. It made me anonymous. In case you didn't figure it out, the comment above was from me, Brandi.

Baby looks so grown up in the stroller! It's so hard to believe she'll be one in a couple of months.

It's INSANE that she'll be 1. She's been eating more and more food. She had real Cheerios last week - her first non-baby food. She's been getting so good at standing and can stand unassisted for brief seconds at a time. It's crazy.
