Jeff got his stitches out yesterday and is looking like a new man - or at least like his former self. For whatever reason Edie slept 7 and a half hours straight last night before waking for a feeding, so that was also pretty great. We've slowly started some Ferberizing, but I plan to write a post about that issue later this weekend.
Thursday, if you recall, is our playgroup day. Last week we had to bail due to our colds, so I was especially looking forward to yesterday and it did not disappoint. I'm not ashamed to tell you that we each sipped one mimosa at the start of group and maybe it was just the idea of a mimosa (one of my favorite beverages of all time) that cheered me up, but suddenly the world wasn't looking quite so tiring. We spent about 4 hours just watching the kids interact, ate lunch together, and spoke rather frankly about post partum and baby issues. It was EXACTLY what I needed and I got the impression that everyone else felt the same.
Unfortunately, we seem to have lost Emme from our playgroup as her Mom is working more these days, but I am happy to announce that we have welcomed two new members into the group. Let me introduce Sarah and her daughter Chloe, who is 4 months old:
And next I'd like you to meet Lauren and her son Danny, who is 6 months old:
And can you also say hello to Danny's knees please?
Don't you just want to gobble them up? I do.
Anyways, since this is our first official playgroup with all members in attendance, I took excessive photos to document the occasion. Because really, can you have too many pictures of a pile of babies?
