Sunday and Monday..

Sorry, I have to do another two-fer blog. Yesterday we were busy all day doing really fun things, so I didn't have a chance to blog.

Daddy took the night shift Saturday night, so Mom had a great night! Libi was only up for about 40 minutes for a feeding, so Daddy didn't get such a bad night to be on patrol. We decided to try to give Libs a shower instead of a bath-- it was quite a scene with all four of us (yes, Tobee helped too) in the guest shower. Libi didn't seem to appreciate her first visit to the shower so we'll stick with a bath for now.

We then loaded everyone in the car and went to Nana and Pop's for brunch. It was so fun to hang out with them for a few hours and eat Nan's yummy cupcakes. Libi was especially smiley for much of her visit, much to her great-grandparents delight.

Daddy and Libi had some alone time after we got back to Canyon Country so I could run some errands. Then we again loaded everyone but Tobee in the car for a visit to Grandma and Grandpa Ippolito's house. We took Libs over to meet Emmy and she was delighted to see her. Our dinner was a traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage, so Libi wore her St. Pat's Day outfit (you can check out pics of our little shamrock butt on Picasa.) After dinner we went for a walk and visited Joyce and Frank Fleshman.

Last night was really good! Libi spent the night in her bassinet and only woke up once for a feeding. This morning we are going to be pretty low-key. It is supposed to be in the 90's again today so we won't be doing a ton outside.

Lunchtime-- Libi just woke up from a really long nap. I was able to shower, put in 2 loads of laundry and hang all of her washed clothes. She is currently in her swing, enjoying looking at her frog and toucan. Tobee knows it is Monday, so she spent from 7 a.m. to noon outside refusing to come in even for a cookie. I tried to explain to her that I wasn't leaving the house today, but she didn't listen. I think the heat worked in my favor and she finally came in to hide under the computer table.

Libi has slept most of this warm day. Ron got home a bit ago and they spent a little quality time together before she conked out again. We are now watching M*A*S*H and getting ready for dinner.

We just had a lovely meal of Italian meatloaf and latkes-- we are quite international here! Libi slept through the whole dinner on Daddy's arm. Grandma Ippolito will come over at 7:30 to spend some time with Libi so we can continue to prepare for the baptism this weekend.

More cleaning is done--- the dining room is looking good as is the den. We are still working on the kitchen (why does that room never stay clean?) and the living room. We are now watching Dog the Bounty Hunter Best of Season 3 on DVD. We'll be off to bed soon to get rested for another day.
