MiniM.E. was sick for a week or so, had a few days of feeling good, and then got sick again. Then Bob got sick. Then I got sick. And we're all still a bit under the weather.
And if I thought it was hard to find time to make blog posts with a healthy baby, it is infinitely harder with a sick baby. Especially when she's up a million times a night. And I'm not feeling good either.
So even though we're both still a little under the weather, I finally feel like I can stay awake during one of her naps and write a post longer than three sentences.
Exciting news! Someone took her first steps!! We're on our way to walking!
In other, less exciting news, we've been spending most of our days outside. I think I have a budding gardener on my hands. (Or at least a budding mulch-eater).
We've been to the park to feed the ducks a few times
We celebrated MiniM.E.'s 11-month birthday by buying her a musical walking toy.
Of course, the best part is the box it came in.
The second best part is playing with it sitting down.
She also likes to crawl behind it.
We haven't really gotten to the walking part yet...
We also took her in the wagon to the playground near our house. It's a pretty awesome playground. Unfortunately it's sort of geared more towards big kids, but we played for a while and MiniM.E. seemed to have a good time.
Yesterday we went up to Lake George for the Jazz on the Lake jazz festival. We were all still a little under the weather, but fortunately it was pretty relaxing.
Molly's favorite part of the day was petting a couple great danes we ran into.
The other thing she really like to play with were the trees.
Between the dogs, the trees, the jazz and not feeling so great, we must have really worn her out because she fell asleep in the car on the way home and slept until this morning!
