First Big Outing
We were getting a little stir crazy in the house last week. Lydia was 4 days old now, and it ended up being a beautiful afternoon outside on Wednesday, so we loaded up the car and headed to White Bear Lake to the Pine Tree Apple Orchard.
Why walk when you can sprint, right? Henry and Phil ran up and down the rows of apple trees a few times to burn off some energy before they went on a tractor ride.
Baby girl was a trooper. She snoozed through the whole trip, and we even got to go out for dinner at Donatelli's (after it was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on the Food Network, we had to check it out.....delicious)!
First Doctor's Appointment
She weighed in at 8 lbs, 3 ozs and the rest of her check-up was great. They expect that babies will be back up to their birthweight at their 2 week check-up. Dr. Sakkal said she's a healthy little babe.
All clean and dressed up now!
First Trip To Church
Lydia is a loud squeaker. She squeaks (like her Great Grandma Bertha), both when awake and asleep. She sure let the congregation know she had arrived with all her noise making. The little old ladies behind us were in love with her new pink hat :)
Funny story about Henry.....today when we got in the car to take Henry to school, Lydia was crying at first and Henry said, "Mommy, I don't think you fed her enough, she's crying for more!" Oh, how observant they are.
Grandma & Grandpa were in town this past weekend. Henry stayed busy with a trip to Fleet Farm to check out the Toyland that opened up on Saturday as well as making a few bird feeders for our trees.
