weekend in the sun

We had such a great weekend.  The kind of weekend I wish I could bottle up and save on a shelf.  The sun was shining, Emily was smiling, and Steve and I looked at each other multiple times and said, "can you believe we have this little girl?"  Even when things are rough and Emily isn't sleeping, we are still grateful that she is healthy and she is here with us.

We went to a cookout at a neighbor's house


Emily took her first trip to the zoo




And she got a swing!



A percfect weekend all around!

*Sleep/reflux update: Emily still didn't sleep the greatest this weekend but thankfully Grandma took a night shift for us and we got some much needed sleep on Saturday night.  Emily is starting to refuse her bottles and I think it's because she knows the reflux pain comes after she eats.  We have been able to give her oatmeal without a problem.  She slept for 11 hours last night only waking up to eat at 3am and with some reflux pain at 5:30am.

  1. 11 hours is great! I probably wouldn't want to eat either if I knew my tummy would be upset afterwards, poor girl. I wish there was an immediate fix for that. :( How did she like the zoo? She sure looks like she's taking in her surroundings. We need to get Chloe a swing too, I've been talking about it for weeks now, I just haven't bought one yet. I bet you'll get a lot of good use out of it.

  2. Oh my gosh - she looks like such a big girl in her swing!

    That sucks about the reflux. :( Hopefully her system matures soon and that stops. Poor baby!

  4. This sounds like such a fun weekend!! :) Love the photo of her grabbing the beer. What a cheeky little grin! Also, I love her little swing!! Did she enjoy it? I will have to get one for Alidia once she is a little bigger. I used to nanny a little girl who could stay in her swing for hours and just hated being taken out!

  14. I have been SO out of the blogger loop. I had NO idea that her reflux was that bad. Poor, poor baby, mommy, and daddy. We are still dealing with spit up a lot, but there doesn't seem to be any pain associated with it, thank goodness. I'm praying for you guys!
