Okay, my only excuse not to get this post done on time is the Olympics! I have been glued to the tv. I think that is how I am going to remember nursing Nate - all the Olympics I have watched! We celebrated the opening with some yummy Chinese food and had a great time. Wasn't it great?!? I've totally enjoyed the beach volleyball, gymnastics, swimming and diving. It's interesting having it on so many channels - to watch other sports like handball, weightlifting, badmitton, and more! Not sure yet which sport Nate likes best...
Another great thing is that I am now driving! Yea! On our first day in the car we took my mom to Taylor to catch the train to Ft. Worth (she had a great time - can't wait to take Nate on it), and then we headed up to Granger to visit Mrs. Butler and JoJo. That's the farthest Nate has been from Austin.
A special thanks to Mrs. Rose for the great soup she brought us this week. It was delicious!! I need to get that recipe from you.
Week 5 update:
Day 35 - Mama leaves on the train - and we are sad to see her go. We went up to visit our friends in Granger.
Day 36 - Our family friend Meredith comes to visit.
Day 37 - the Olympics begin! Yea! Mommy and Nate also go out for lunch with friends for the first time.
Day 38 - Spend the day watching the Olympics. We went on a safari with Texas Alliance for Life (what we "won" for Nate raising over $1000 for the their Walk for Life). Nate also met some of my former co-workers and volunteers.
Day 39 - Nate did great at Mass! Slept the whole time!! We also went to Sam's for the first time and Nate seems to have had his first "cooing" conversation with us.
Day 40 - Mrs. Nicholson picks us up to go to the Mornings with Mommy meeting at our church. We have a fun time with the other moms and kids. I also have my 6 week check-up - all is good! We've also found out that Nate is getting much better at holding up his head.
Day 41 - Mrs. Rose comes to visit and brings us yummy dinner! Thanks!
And we had a little photo shoot this week...
