More Firsts....

So this exciting Friday has brought not only some firsts for Miss Sara Kate, but this evening has brought some firsts for mommy! What might I be referring to?? 3 little words - beer & cookie dough. Ha!!!! Ah, how I've missed thee! :-)
(Don't worry, I pumped milk for Sara Kate before I drank the beer!!)
Now that the important stuff is out of the way (ha!), onto the other events of our day! Today I had my 6-week postpartum doctor's appointment. Chris and Sara Kate went with me, and baby girl did good! She slept most of the time, and we had a bottle to give her afterward since it was her lunch time. My appointment went well, and we learned that I'm all healed up! That's good to know! I have to say that I love my regular doctor, but the doctor that delivered Sara Kate (and I saw today) is a very close second. He was really great when I saw him during my pregnancy, at delivery, and today, and I would be happy to see him again in the future. After my appointment, we had a little family lunch at McAllister's and then we had our first family trip to Target!! We needed diapers and wipes, and while we were there we picked up a baby carrier. We ended up with the Baby Bjorn...I figured that Chris would be more likely to wear that compared to some kind of sling. Sara Kate did good at Target, too! She did get a little hungry so Chris carried her and fed her a little. I'm sure we were quite the sight! When we got home, we had to try out the carrier. This is Mr. GQ and his baby. Ha! You should have seen some of the models in the the Baby Bjorn catalog with their babies...hilarious! He totally could have made the cut!
And this is what Sara Kate thought of the Baby Bjorn.
To end our evening, Chris played some tunes for Sara Kate.
So as you can see, we've had an eventful day!! I'll end this post with some pictures of our girl, I mean that really why everyone reads this blog, right?? :-) First, it seems this week that Sara Kate has discovered her hands. Its happens when she's hungry, and in this picture it seems she found her thumb! Not sure we want that...ha!
And finally, how about a few little grins from our girl?? She was staring at the ceiling fan...obviously it was quite amusing!
Ok, and here's one more just because I think this picture is funny! If I could caption this picture it would read, "This is what I think of you and that darn camera, mom!!"


  1. Oh my gosh, I love that picture of Chris holding Sara Kate and playing the piano. You should frame that one, that is the sweetest thing I've ever seen. I love it!!

  2. She is such a cutie. I think thumb can be better because if the pacifier falls out of her mouth she will wake up screaming for it and you have to get up to put it back in. Thumbs are easily found. Not all babies like pacifiers. Sara didn't and we tried all kinds. At 6 she still sucks her thumb. Good thing she can't write and suck it at the same time.
