My best friend Rose and her hubs Jon came to visit us last week, and we had the best of times! I really do have the bestest friend in the world- I never will know how I got so lucky to find my soul mate (can one have soul mate friends? well I do if it exists). We went shopping and walked around the cutesy, artsy fartsy downtown area in my town that I never visit unless I am entertaining guests. We also just hung out and relaxed together. Rose absolutely loved our little Ali gal- she and Jon are going to start trying to create their own bunch over the winter- whoo hoo!
KK and I finished off the week by heading up to the cabin. It was so nice to get outta town and just relax - it is amazing how much fun doing nothing can be! I strapped Ali in the front pack and went walkin'- I love fall and all the trees changing colors! It was really refreshing for me - I have been feeling so run-down lately- maybe a mild case of the baby blues- but being up in that northern air and seeing the beauty that I have in my life gave me just the boost I needed.
On the Ali update front: she is becoming so alert and starting to show us her little personality, and thankfully, it's a good one :-). She is beginning to smile and coo, and follows us around the room with her eyes- it's awesome!
She rolled over on Saturday!!!!!!! We could not even believe it: I was sitting on the floor with her, enjoying some tummy time, and she pushed herself up and over to her right side! It surprised the crap outta her, me, and daddy, but we laughed and clapped for our big girl. Who knows if it was a fluke- she is only 5 weeks old- but we think she is pretty amazing.
P.S. This picture confirms it: this baby looks nothing like her mommy and exactly like her daddy:( Thankfully, her daddy is a good lookin sucker!
