Let us explain. In order for Alice's sleeping/eating routine to jive with the mommy-baby exercise class we are taking, we like to arrive early to feed and play before class starts. This unusual sports complex has a full service bar (well, not at 9 am), complete with comfy leather couches. So that's where we hang out!
Here is a pic of the little one when we first arrived on Thursday. When she wakes up she loves staring at the neon "Danse Country" sign and the huge speckled brass doorknob on the iron gates (we never said it was a classy joint)

Alice's four-month check-up was on Thursday. Once again, she was off the charts for weight and height (and cuteness)! A question to our relatives: are there any 8-foot women in the family trees that we don't know about?
But seriously... Alice is wonderfully healthy, weighing 15 pounds on the nose, and measuring 66.5 cm long (two thirds of a meter gasps daddy!) We are pretty sure that both Alice and the doctor will recover from the appointment without any lasting trauma (yes, she cried this time)

"Movies 4 Mommies" (and daddies) is organized once a week at some local theatres. The volume is low in the theatre, there are diaper change tables, and the place is filled with kissable cheeks, and the sound of cooing and gurgling. Lucky us!

Alice is practicing her "caught red handed face". Also commonly reffered to as the "hand in the cookie jar face"

Mother and daughter
My dad told me that his homeland was flat... but I never expected this!
Check out my legs!
(new Christmas duds and socks)
Alice's uncles bought her this great hammock in France.
Great for lounging around in the summer sun!
A pretty new party frock from Gran
More french treats... A stylish outfit from Georges and Jacotte!
Many thanks to everyone for all of Alice's wonderful Christmas gifts. We can't find enough time in the day to play with everything!

And tante J got some 1 on 1 time too!!
She was a little more apprehensive once she was on the plane. All in all it went very well; it turns out that all that humming and bumpiness is quite soothing.
