date night.

we had a date night monday night!  grandma bev kept the babe, and the hubs and i went to see a movie.  we saw the time traveler's wife, and it was SO good!  i've had the book for a while, but haven't quite gotten around to reading it.  i usually like the book better than the movie, so i'm sort of glad i saw the movie first. 

i highly recommend it!  hubs even liked it!

new family member!

i almost forgot!  we welcomed a new member to the family yesterday!
meet ava!  she was born at 3:39 pm.  she is the daughter of my cousin/sister/best friend, deserey.  des wanted to give birth med-free, and by george, she did it!  i was present for the entire labor and delivery, and i now have a newfound respect for any woman who gives birth naturally.  it was the most intense thing i've ever experienced in my life!  i'm so very proud of her.
her auntie loves her so very much!

day at grandma's.

today we ventured to grandma bev's.  mia had a great time.
she hung out with great-grandma glenna for a while.  i actually caught a smile!
and grandma has a new toy for her to play with at her house!  she's not quite big enough for it yet...we had to stuff blankets in front of her, so she wouldn't lean all the way forward.  and her feet don't quite touch the ground yet.  she had a good time, though.

first night without baby.

i finally did it. i had a night without mia, and i missed her terribly. she stayed with my parents last night since i had to have an early morning procedure done at my GYN office. it was nice, but i missed her the whole time. i couldn't wait to pick her up today! chris and i were able to go to applebee's for happy hour, and i only had one blue moon before i thought i would pass out from exhaustion!

she did very well. according to mom, she went down for the night around 10 pm (!) and got up around 10 am. hopefully this is a trend and she stops staying up until 1 or 2 am. she's asleep right now, and i'm hoping she stays that way!

oh, and for the record, colposcopies suck.
