Week 26 Highlights

Week 26 Highlights

This was an exciting week- Remi started solid foods!  We had done some cereal before, but these were brand new flavors!

She LOVED the sweet potatoes and peas. She’s pretty independent and wants to feed herself. While that’s a little messier, she’s getting the hang of it pretty quickly.

She wore an ADORABLE RicRac & Ruffles Easter outfit. She was feeling it! And of course, brother Pippin had to get in the photo shoot.

On Saturday, Tyler had the day off.  We did some errands and shopping and this big girl got to sit up in the buggie. She was so proud of herself!

Tyler wore her around Target for the first time ever.  I usually wear her, but I’m in a walking boot right now (I have tarsal tunnel- like carpal tunnel but in your ankle)…so he wore her so I was hobbling around with a baby in tow. She enjoyed it and got in a good nap. 

And she looked ADORABLE in her cute Matilda Jane hat.

My Aunt Bobby and Uncle Jerry came in from NWA to have lunch and they got to meet Remi for the first time! She loved them!

Week 26 was full of fun! And in a flash, half a year is over! I can hardly believe it!


Week 4 Highlights

Week 4 Highlights

What?! At the end of this week, you’ll be 4 weeks old?! That’s crazy. Completely crazy.

But we are having fun (most of the time!)

Here’s some highlights from week 4.

Your belly button is all healed up- and completely adorable if I do say so myself.

You’re totally into anything that makes noise. On your playmat, the blue racoon rattles, and it’s your jam when you lay there to play. If I rattle it, you turn your little head to see it. LOVE. I hope you’re musical like me!

You’re having a bunch of poopsplosions. I think it’s time to move up to the next diaper size, but we are trying to use up the rest of these newborn diapers. I was cleaning a pooptastrophe that happened while you were swinging. I turned on the aquarium lights in your crib and you LOVED looking at it. LOTS of excited arms and cooing at the fishes. img_0692

I rocked you one morning while you slept late. Your cheeks are filling out and you looked so freaking cute.

Your Halloween outfit made an appearance on Saturday (a few days before Halloween). We went to Poteau to shop and have lunch with your Grammy, Gigi and cousins. They all thought you looked ADORABLE. You did great while we shopped, but fussed some at lunch. Good thing you’re cute.

We’ve been using the soft Sophie the Giraffe to entertain you during diaper changes and such. I let you hold it during some Rock and Play time- and it was so cute how you just held onto it! I hope you like little lovies.img_0636

On Halloween, you had a onesie that said “My First Halloween,” but I was fond of your pumpkin butt.img_0652

One day last week, you had been napping all day, and it was SO nice outside (thanks crazy fall weather!) so we went to Sonic, took a drink to your “Auntie” Rachel at church, and then we walked the trail. You konked out during our walk, so I got to spend 30 minutes enjoying the beautiful day…and then you stayed asleep so we went to Walmart. A GREAT afternoon for mom.

And just for good measure, another “Pippin loves tummy time” pic. I can’t wait for y’all to be besties.

Week 3 Highlights

Week 3 Highlights

This time is zooming by. I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep (although Remi’s sleeping pretty great- only getting up 2-3 times in the night!) or just the emotions, hormones, and newness of it all- but I can’t believe we are finished with week 3!

Here are the random memories…

The dogs LOVE tummy time.  We put her on her blanket in the floor and they gather. Mikey doesn’t get too interested often, but he enjoys tummy time.

We had a day of doctor’s appointments, and she wore these ADORABLE overalls. It’s been unseasonably warm, so we were able to wear some of the summery clothes we were given- which is great!

Here’s Pip loving tummy time, too. 

We went on our first family walk! You like the walk until you don’t! ha!  You HATE dirty and wet diapers, so if you get one while walking, you aren’t a happy camper until we get home. But you like the fresh air, and you LOVE uneven terrain. You’re happier being pushed on the gravel than the smooth road.

I got a little mommy time while Grammy watched you at Gerber Mother to Be Day. The local Gerber plant honors moms with a fun day full of educational stuff, giveaways, and entertainment (and a yummy lunch!).  It was fun! And we got LOTS of Gerber goodies for you!

Daddy went back to workand this was the site after his first day back. 🙂 Both of you napping together.

You got all dolled up before Taste of Fort Smith. I LOVE the glitzy clothes.image1

We went to a lunch fundraiser at Taste of Fort Smith. She slept the WHOLE TIME. It was marvelous. She’s a little fussy some days, so I wasn’t sure how this outing would go- but she did AWESOME and we got to try lots of yummy food from places around town.

So that was week 3!  One more week and you’ll be 4 weeks old!

 


Meeting the Dogs

Meeting the Dogs

During the birth, my friend Rachel took care of the dogs…and then once the moms were back home, they stayed with my MIL.

But when it was time to come home, we wanted them to be there to meet their sister.

They are doing SO GOOD with her.

They have been interested, but gentle. Pippin loves getting close and sniffing her.

And they HATE when she cries. Sorry guys. Lots more where that came from.

Here is the moment we put her carrier in the floor and they saw her for the first time.

We let them sniff around…img_0352

And our night time rocking sessions are not alone. Pippin always follows me around with her. The protector.img_0359

The first time we put her in the cosleeper, Mikey slept in between her and me! 

For the most part, we aren’t letting them in bed at night, just at nap time (they used to sleep on our bed) just because I don’t want to have to dodge them and Tyler when I get up.

But I see lots of playing in their future once she gets a little bigger!
