Sunday- Today was Grampy's birthday! We spent the morning preparing the house for the party and then Daddy, Grampy, Grandmalito and Aunt Andrea when to see the Simpson Movie. Mommy and Libi spent the afternoon playing and cooking. Libi is getting to enjoy her time in the kitchen-- she talks nonstop while we're in there! She is also having fun playing with her new tooth. She can spend hours taking her tongue and flicking her new tooth-- she's making lots of new funny faces.
After the movie everyone came here and Aunt Violet came over to enjoy dinner. Mommy's meal of fried zucchini, garlic bread, lasagna, and salad went over well, but the chocolate trifle was the big hit!! Grampy liked his presents and the time he got to spend with Libs-- it was a fun night.
Monday - We ran all over town today. Mommy and Libs ran errands-- the grocery store, the video store, the butcher-- we were all over town. When we got home we spent most of the afternoon in the kitchen. We had chocolate chip oatmeal cookies waiting for Daddy when he got home from his first day with students. Note: he also took a home-made lunch to school.
We spent the evening eating dinner and playing together. It was a new food Monday for Libs and she ate sweet potatoes for the first time today. She really didn't make any faces at all and ate them all up!
Tuesday - Libs and I went to the mall today. We walked the entire mall and went into several shops just to look around. We made dinner for Daddy and then Grandmalito and Grampy came over for a short visit.
Wednesday - We went to Nana and Pop's for lunch today. Libs did all of her tricks for them-- she "read" them books, rolled over, and crawled backwards. She enjoyed eating her lunch with her great-grandparents and Mommy enjoyed Nana's stellar potato salad (Daddy enjoyed the cupcakes she sent home.) Grandmalito came over for a short visit this evening to show Daddy the food she ordered for John's farewell. Today Libs also figured out how to make her animal train play music. She is really getting good at exploring her toys-- she has figured out things about them that Mommy and Daddy didn't even know!
Thursday - Mommy and Libs decided to stay home today and play. We spent the day in the kitchen and scrapbook room playing and singing. Daddy took the evening shift so that Mommy could have a little alone time. He fed Libs, played with her, comforted her when she was fussy, and tried to teach her how to do fishy kisses.. Sometime during the day, Libs second tooth broke through-- it wasn't there when Mommy checked in the morning but it was there when she checked at about 8 p.m. Libs decided to stay up until nearly 2 a.m. so Mommy was very tired by the time that she crashed.
Friday - We slept in today-- thank goodness! When Libs finally woke up happy at about 10 a.m. we ate breakfast, got dressed and headed out to the grocery store. While we were at the grocery store Libs sat in the cart for the first time. As we were walking through the aisles I noticed that she was doing fishy kisses like Daddy showed her last night-- boy is she a quick learner!! We will be entertaining again tonight when Grampy, Grandmalito and Aunt Andrea come for dinner. This afternoon we have been playing and Libs took a very short nap.
Dinner was fun! Everyone enjoyed the meatloaf, potatoes and brownies. It was nice to have everyone back at the house. Libs especially enjoyed her time with her Aunt Andrea. Auntie has a special gift for making Libi laugh and smile. You can see the photos on Picasa.
