The week of firsts...

I always forget how big Lidia is getting. I still think of her as my newborn baby and I don't realize that she's probably ready for bigger and better things! So, I put her in an exersaucer for the first time and oh my! She absolutely loved it! It was just one more thing for her to chew on and slobber all over!
Another first for Miss Lidia would be the first infamous rice cereal tasting. Lidia definitely didn't jump for joy for the rice cereal like she did for the exersaucer. It was comedy for me though, and just one more way to remind me of how big she is!

The third first was her first holiday!! Now, I know Halloween is not until the end of the week, but we celebrated early by going to Night Eyes this weekend at the Blank Park Zoo. We were able to enjoy Night Eyes with Lindsey and her family and we had a blast!

Ava and London went as Cindy Lu Who and the Cat in the Hat. Lidia went as a pink poodle and was the cutest little dog I've ever seen!

Ava loves her baby "Lithia." She probably had the most fun out of all of us being able to get candy, play on a tractor, and see all the animals.

I know this is technically Lidia's blog but look at the face on Ava! I had put it on here! I love her!

Lidia spent all of Saturday in her Hawkeye outfit and maybe that was the Hawks good luck charm! 8-0 record! What an amazing game that was!!

Our trip to Minnesota

Lidia has everything in her mouth! And I mean EVERYTHING! As you can see, she's trying to get my whole face in her mouth! These are her kissys to mommy!

We love football season! Mommy and Lidia had a photo shoot in the bedroom while Monday Night Football was on but we still stayed in football mode with the football pillow!

Lidia had a great time at Grandma and Grandpa Ustrud's house! Ami, Lidia, and I left Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday morning. Lidia did great in the car! It was her first long car ride and it went really well! Friday night we had dinner with grandma and grandpa and caught up. Saturday we woke, went to Ikea for the yummy meatballs, and then went to Aunt Robyn's house to see her, Joey, and Amanda. We had a great time and I haven't laughed that hard in a long time! It was good to see everyone! Our trip ended Sunday morning but not before I got some adorable pictures of Lidia with her great grandparents!

Aunt Robyn put Lidia in her animal's basket AKA their bed! Of course we had to get pictures!
The cousins! Ami, Lidia, Joey, Amanda and myself. It was really great to see them!

Tis the Season; Flu, Pink Eye, Blocked Tear Duct?

This has been another uneventful week and weekend. Alaina's kids were sick for several days so Lidia was able to spend time with family and friends during the week so I could still work. I'm glad Alaina's kids are all feeling better but now it's on to my family! Saturday night/early Sunday morning I finally got the flu bug that everyone around me was passing around. I had it for a few days and passed it to Chloe and then my mom but luckily Lidia hasn't gotten it! She woke up this morning with what I thought was pink eye though. I took her to the doctor and it turns out that she has a blocked tear duct. I was told by a little bird to use some lavendar oil and it should clear right up! There people go with their oil talk! (But we'll see if it helps the princess out!) We celebrated Lidia's three month birthday this weekend by painting her room at our new home! Grandma Debbie, Aunt Chloe, Matt, and myself all contributed to the job and we were able to get it done in just a few short hours while Lidia spent Saturday with her dad's family in Greenfield. They had fun watching the amazing Hawkeye game and relaxing around the house. She came home early the next morning to a sick mommy and unfortunately we weren't able to get her three month pictures done as planned, but they are scheduled for this evening! I can't wait! Lidia, Ami, and I also can't wait for Friday when we venture to Minnesota to visit Grandma and Grandpa Ustrud. It should be quite the adventure with two adults and a three month old in a car for four hours! Pray for us!
