My mom stayed with us after Baby#2 was born to help out. Which we desperately needed since MiniM.E. is a full time job for at least one person and I needed to recover a bit and we all had to get used to having all the extra responsibilities of a baby. MiniM.E. and Gram and Daddy had been keeping busy while Baby#2 and I spent a lot of time learning to eat and changing diapers.
Finally over the weekend we were all ready for an outing so we went to the mall. With three adults and one sleeping baby we had a great trip and MiniM.E. had all of our attention.
My mom left Sunday and we've been getting used to it being just the four of us. Fortunately Bob has this week off so there is an extra pair of hands at home during the day.
Sunday we took a family outing downtown. MiniM.E. wanted to show Baby#2 all her favorite downtown attractions:

MiniM.E. had a great time. (Baby#2 had a great nap!)
Monday I took both girls out by myself for the first time. We went to our usual library playgroup. MiniM.E. was glad to get back to our normal activities and it really wasn't as hard as I thought since Baby#2 still sleeps pretty much all the time.
Yesterday we went to a friend's house for a playdate. It was so cute to see the girls with the baby since they were all just babies when we started having weekly playdates.
Add in some snacks and some kitty cuddles and it was a fantastic day!
