I can't believe it's the weekend again already. This week flew by. Willow's had a pretty eventful week. She turned 11 months old on Tuesday, and 8 months corrected on Friday. She added "da" to her sounds and learned how to wave hello and good-bye. On Wednesday my mom stopped by after work and was completely surprised to see Willow, with Linda, waving to her as she came up the walk.
The spring-like weather has continued up here; in fact, as I write this, it is raining. In January. Yuck!! We've been able to bring Willow outside on more walks though.
This morning we had our neighbors Antti, Anna and Maisa over for a bagel brunch. Maisa is 15 months old. It's fun when Willow can be around other babies. I think the socialization is important enough where it sort of cancels out any worry of germs. I also brought her to a La Leche League meeting a couple weeks ago. The women there were excited to finally meet Willow - I've always been the one odd woman who doesn't bring her child to the meeting.
We use the teal-colored hospital-issue tubs for everything around here, including as a toy box. We sat Willow in one the other day and reminicsed about her first real bath in the NICU, which was in one of those tubs.
This blog follows the adventures of Lindsay, Josh and Willow Jenson. It started in 2008 as my pregnancy blog, then when our daughter was born 14 weeks early in February 2009 it morphed into a medical blog as she spent her first 105 days in the NICU. Now, thankfully, it's basically a run-of-the-mill new parent blog.
