Monday, Monday

Maddie had her 2 month wellness visit today, which sadly meant 4 shots. Poor baby, she screamed bloody murder, but luckily Rob was there to hold her while they did it. Now she's sleeping, though she's been a little fitful and fussy. Meanwhile, Dr. Bo told us that she's pretty much perfect and she weighs 11lb9oz now.

We had one of our first "weekends" in a very long time. Rob is now the store manager at his coffeehouse and was able to have a weekend off prior to starting in his new position. So we took Maddie to the cottage where we all had an amazing time. As you may have guessed from the video I posted yesterday, Maddie met grass for the first time. I don't think she's a big fan. It did rain a bit yesterday so we didn't get to introduce her to the lake. Mostly we just relaxed:

This is what I saw when I got up on Saturday morning -- Maddie and her Dad rocking and looking at the lake.

Maddie and I had breakfast on the front porch.

Maddie decided to hang out in her PJs.

Our jaunt into the backyard, complete with oversized sun bonnet.

Evasion tactics.

Meeting Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jack.

Complete exhaustion after all the excitement. This of course is the reason that today I am utterly exhausted. Sadly, Maddie got just a little bit too much sleep yesterday and found it really fun to sleep rather half-heartedly. So I got two hours last night, plus a few 20 minute increments mixed in in various places. Ah well, such is life with a baby!

The good news is Rob should be able to take most weekends off now, so we will be spending more time down at the cottage.

Isn't it odd how babies never like grass when they first encounter it? In all of my baby experiences, I've never met a baby that liked grass right away.
