Happy Monday, friends! We have had a wonderful past couple of days and I have several blog posts in the works to detail them for you and our memories...but today I am here to say that my mom, also known as "Nana" is here. We are so excited to have her with us for two whole weeks to help and love on Liam!
She arrived on Thursday in the evening, and going to pick her up from the airport marked Liam's first official trip out of the house. Well, we had left the house for his doctors appointment but I am not counting that as an official outing that we volunteered for! So, of course we documented with some pictures:
Mommy & Liam: 1 week old
Liam looked like such a little man in his outfit, I was smitten for sure!
Lilly wanted her picture taken too, but would not put down her sippy cup:
Love her "cheese" face!
We left the house in time to stop at Aldi's to pick up a few things we needed. Lilly went inside to shop with Stephen while Liam and I stayed in the van to avoid germs. We took advantage of the time and had a nice little bottle feeding and then we all headed to the airport. After picking up my mom, we went to Chick-Fil-A for a quick dinner. This was Liam's first time eating out and I will admit that I was nervous about it. I was mostly nervous about germs. Thankfully, the place was almost empty and we sat in the back corner away from everyone. Liam stayed in his carseat the entire time and slept through the whole meal. I think it went very well!
I remember the first time we took Lilly out and how anxious I was about it. I am happy to report that things seem to be easier this time around-I guess what they say about relaxing after baby #1 is true. I'm glad my family and I can enjoy little outings together without Mommy having an anxiety attack or melt-down.
More posts coming soon! In the works are: my hospital stay, sneak peak at family photos, and more fun with Nana!
