Well last Saturday (2/16) we had a very fun time at the Mall of America. Kirra and I met up with my high school friend who also had a baby, just a few weeks younger than Kirra. Kirra just loved the stroller, and now that she can see more, had a fun time looking around at everything. Sunday (2/17) Jason, Kirra, and I continued our adventure to Rosedale Mall and babies R Us. We looked at baby clothes, and we bought new glass bottles. (With the scare of BPA leaching into baby bottles, we’re not taking any chances.) Finally on Presidents day, I took Kirra to see my old co-workers at the Marriott, and then we went and saw Summer’s new baby in Wyoming, MN. Gosh we were busy! Back when Kirra was just 2 or 3 weeks old I joined a group called “New Parent Connection” at the hospital. It was a chance for other new moms (and dads… although they never come) to meet with each other, and talk about what is going well, what isn’t going well, and offer each other tips and advice. Well all of us mom’s had to go back to work, so we exchanged emails, and are now meeting up with each other every other week. It’s really nice to meet other people, and have friends that are in the same place in life as you. All of our children are about the same age, and for those of us who live close to each other our kids will most likely go to school together. Kirra is just a happy go-lucky baby who occasionally has her moments, but don’t we all??? She sleeps in her own room/crib, and goes to sleep usually about 9pm, 9:30pm, and will sleep straight thru until about 7:00-8:00am. We’re extremely lucky!
