Beautiful Weekend

The weather was perfect this weekend! I just wish that it would stay that way for a while!! We definitely took advantage of it and got out of the house. We have been trying to stay in for the most part since it has been so cold and with all the sickness but we just couldnt resist getting out this weekend. Saturday we went to visit Nana and Papa Doug (Rileys parents) and then came home and took a stroll around the neighborhood. This was her first time in the stroller and she seemed to like it because it put her right to sleep. Sunday we took her out to eat for the first time. We met my parents at Cypress Inn for lunch and she did great...she once again slept the whole time! haha I hope everyone else enjoyed the weekend as much as we did!!

Colic update: She is doing much better (knock on wood) with her fussy time. I think we are just finding better ways to soothe her. By the way, thanks for all the suggestions. She does not like to be swaddled...but I keep trying thinking she might decide she likes it! haha She does like to be rocked and sang too and the pacie helps. I have the worst singing voice but at least my baby likes it! :) I need to think of some more songs...I just keeping singing "Jesus Loves Me!" But hey whatever works!
