On Tuesday morning, we visited with Alice's friend Simonne, her mum Pascale and her grandparents who are also visiting from Manitoba. Unfortunately Simonne's dad Eric is off visiting far-offs lands (missing his daughter no doubt)
Alice got to see what a big girl Simonne is - walking, dancing and playing with dolls. Only one year until Alice gets to run around with her!
For more pics, have a peek at Simonne's blog (look to the list on the right side of this page)
Big girl at her desk!
But why is she crying?
Simonne seemed to want to go for a ride in Alice's carseat!
Auntie Jean and Uncle Brian bought a snazzy new stroller for Alice. Though it isn't self-propelled, and it doesn't change her diapers, it's pretty darned convenient - light, manoeuvrable, compact, and oh-so-stylish!
A special bonus: she can tote all of her most important possessions around with her!
Here are some photos of the happy family (including grandma and grandad), taken on Sunday - Alice's one-month birthday!!! Morale was especially high that day, since we all had a good night's sleep. Two four hour long intervals - in the same night!
Even on the sleepless nights, we couldn't be happier. Alice is beautiful, and growing and changing right before our eyes. Every moment is truly precious and we feel so lucky to have her in our lives!
Thursday was Alice's first appointment with her pediatrician. She was so patient and happy as the doctor stretched her out to measure her, flexed her legs and checked her eyesight, and daddy undressed her to be weighed.
Our little crevette is now a jumbo shrimp... she weighs 10 pounds even (up from 7 lbs 11 oz at birth), and is 55 cm tall (up from 49 cm)!!!
At the end of the appointment she was given a clean bill of health!
