Adelaide’s Party

Adelaide’s party was yesterday, and I don’t think it could have gone any smoother. Even though her nap and eating routine was all thrown off, Adelaide didn’t melt down or fall asleep the whole time we were setting up, having the party and then cleaning up afterwards. I’m so grateful for all the people who could make her day so special. We did it! Chris and I survived our first year of parenthood. It’s definitely bittersweet. : )

38 Weeks 4 Days

Today marks the day that Adelaide has been an outside baby for as long as she was nestled safely in my tummy. I know, I know, the first 2 weeks of pregnancy don’t really “count,” but for all intents and purposes, this is a big deal in my mind. I have an almost 9-month-old baby. This time last year I was big, sweaty and uncomfortable. This year, I’m sweaty, uncomfortable, sleep deprived and just a little bit bigger than I was before pregnancy. Ah, memories.

We are still busy with preparations for our family vacay, but  Adelaide and I took a break from it all to go to the Discover Center with my sister and nieces and nephews for nephew Tony’s birthday. (Shout out to Tony and Frankie, brothers and birthday buddies!) You know, there really should be a combo word for nieces/nephews. In Spanish, it’s “sobrinos.” Anyway, here’s a picture of my baby girl enjoying the “infant sensory garden.”
