It was another exciting week for us here...the highlight of the week was Monday, when we had a fabulous, random day of 70 degree weather and went on our first walk around the neighborhood! Mommy loaded up the stroller, the baby & the dog & off we went! Jake was awake for most of the walk, staring at everything going by & loving all of the light (he's fascinated by lights!)
On Wednesday, Jake had his first official "date" with his new friend, Amelia. Amelia's mommy, Michelle, is in my book club and the four of us met at Panera for lunch. Michelle is my friend who made these fabulous onesies for Jake:
After sleeping for most of the lunch, Jake woke up just in time to turn on his charm for Amelia...we'll have to see if he can handle an older woman!
Unfortunately, we had our first cold at the end of the week...I guess I really take for granted the fact that I can blow my own nose...poor Jake does not have this same ability and the last few days have been spent doing our best with an aspirator and a vaporizer running in his room at night :( at first, he seemed amused by the aspirator and would smile when we used it on him...I'm not sure if he liked the noise, or if it tickled his nose or what. Unfortunately, the novelty of that quickly wore off and his smiles were replaced with shrieks when he saw the little bulb coming at his face. It's hard to reason with a 7 week old that something is for his own good. He seems a bit better today, so hopefully it's working its way out of his system.
