Daniel was able to take 2 weeks off work a few weeks after the baby was born. (He had a big project at work that had to be completed before he could take "maternity leave"). It has been so nice having him home, it feels like a really long weekend. He's been very productive getting lots of projects done around the house. But we also made a little room for fun and took Ridge and Lillian to the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma. We had a really nice time, a few favorites were the Polar Bear, the little show the staff put on, and the Carisol ride. We'll have to go again in a few years when Lillian can remember.
Compared to when Ridge was a baby I feel like I haven't taken any pictures of Lillian. I know thats normal with kid #3 or 4 or 5, but she's only #2.. However I'm now thinking I took a rediculous amount of Ridge as a baby and I have a normal amount of Lillian. And she's only 3.5 weeks old so I'm sure I'll continue to take many more.
even she knows she's precious
She's started to get called "Saggy baggy" due to those very large checks
April and Tawnya and kids came back the day after I got home from the hospital to see our house and for another visit, it would be the last for April since she was headed back to Utah soon. Ridge had fun showing his cousins all his hide outs and my sisters and I attempted a first photo shoot. We didn't have much time and for all the hours that Lillian sleeps she was wide awake during this time which made it a little more challanging. Not sure how the profesionals do it, babies are hard they don't do what you tell them to, but it was fun.
