Week of outings...


I feel like I have been very bad at posting updates! There doesn't seem to be time in the day to do it anymore. Things are going well. Little Izzy has broken out in a bad case of baby acne or heat rash. I feel so bad for her... it will pass though. She has been much more active lately which is really fun for us. She gives little smiles (most likely gas related, but some seem to be for us!) She turned 4 weeks old yesterday and time is flying by. This week Justin and I have stayed pretty busy. We went out to Lucia downtown Kirkland on Sunday night after a long walk along the water. Izzy was not having it! During dinner she was having a fit. Nothing we did could sooth her. Finally once we had the patio to ourselves she calmed down of course! We braved dinner out two more times this week! Tuesday night we went to El T's with my mom and she did so much better. Then last night we met the Thurik's at the Kirkland market and took a stroll down the water to the Beach House restaurant...it's a little fancy for a baby and two 1 year olds! However all three kiddos did great! It has been so nice to get out of the house. I've been feeling much better physically... we have been walking a lot and it feels great. My best friend is getting married in November in Cabo, so I need to get my butt in gear to look "pre-baby" as quick as I can. Although I will never truly have my "pre-baby body" again as you moms out there know. It is worth it though to have Isabella in our lives! This weekend we are venturing out to Ocean Shores! Crazy right? My mom, brother-law, niece Gianna (3), the boys, my brother and his girlfriend are all coming along. We will have lots of hands to help us out! I'm dreading packing though. I have made a list and literally looks like we are packing everything minus the kitchen sink! I'm excited to see what our trip brings and to post pictures of our first family trip with Izzy!

I love how you are seemingly living your same life with new baby Izzy. Congratulations again. You are a wonderful mommy!

She is so cute! Love the hat. Good luck in Ocean Shores - we went to Chelan last weekend. My only advice is feed her lots before you get in the car. Then hopefully she'll sleep the whole way for ya! Is she still sleeping well?
