First outing alone with the girls...

Haven is 10 days old today!!! And already in size 1 diapers! :(

Haven, Venily, and I went on our first outing together to library storytime!! I was really proud of myself for getting us all ready and out the door, lol! Haven was an ANGEL and Venily acted really weird and shy and started crying about 20 minutes in.... :( I don't know if it's because she's kind of sick or what. It might have been all the attention Haven was getting. My mom came and picked her up so I could take Haven grocery shopping with me and when my mom asked her what Storytime was about today she said "Haven". LOL!! It's weird because she hasn't shown ANY jealousy or aggression or anything towards her, she's been the exact opposite actually! I'm hoping her ABC, Music, & Me class goes better tomorrow!

Haven has now been to the hospital, Taco Bell, The White Fox Den, her Grandma & Grandpa's house, Aunt Jacki & Uncle Jake's house, the library, and Walmart, lol! And she is soooo good everywhere she goes! I think she is going through a growth spurt because she's been sleeping for like 3 days straight, lol, and STILL sleeping good at night too! The real challenge will begin when she is done with this sleepy newborn stage!

I weighed myself this morning and am at 125 lbs!!! I've already lost more than I wanted to! And I've almost single-handedly eaten an entire pan of brownies over the last 3 days, lol!

We are trying to get things ready for Venily's 2nd birthday party! It's going to be Sunday, October 18th at our house. Jason is freaking out because our yard won't be done yet, but I really could care less! Now he is focusing on the basement and getting all the dry wall finished up finally! I can't wait until her party, she talks about it every day! And we have decided that on her actually birthday (the 13th) we are going to probably go to Bear Den Zoo and pumpkin picking! :) I also have Haven's 2 week check up and Venily has her library class that morning as well! I'm hoping the weather is better by then!


  1. Is the Bear Den Zoo open on weekdays?

  2. Oh, I don't even know! We went to the Wilmot flea market today though and it was SOOOO cold, so we were thinking we were going to try to find something indoors anyway! Venily and I wanted to go to the Shedd Aquarium, but Jason probably has to work, so that won't work out! I don't know what we're going to do...

  3. Yeah I think the Bear Den just opens on weekdays for schools and big groups like that... but it would be really cold anyways.
    I was telling Jason that the Betty Brinn Museum is really fun for kids. Venily would absolutely love it. Everything is hands on and made for toddlers. If you wanted to go maybe we could ride up there together and Jason could meet us after he was done working?
