New skills

We’re starting to gain some new baby handling skills. For instance, today I cut Jordi’s hair (which I do normally) while carrying Josie in a ring sling. She is sleeping happilly while I have the use of my two hands! Earlier this week I went to the Boston Babywearers group meeting and got some pointers for the sling which has helped make her happier and the sling more effective.

Today we also went to the doctor and Josie is up to 8 lbs 10 oz, she’s gaining about 1 oz a day which the doctor said is fantastic and right in the range she wants to see.

Last weekend Jordi’s parents came to town for a visit which was great. Yesterday Josie got to meet her uncle Javi and his girlfriend and we’ll be having fun hanging out with them more this weekend. We went out to dinner for the first time with Josie last night and she mercifully slept through the entire thing!

Grandparents and the kids!

    Congrats on the sleeping through dinner thing. Unfortunately we found out that it didn’t last very long for us. Only a few weeks. Now we are in a phase when we can only go out to eat for brunch 🙂

    I highly recommend that you add bottle feeding to her list of skills soon. We never used a bottle because I was home to nurse Xander, and now he absolutely refuses to take one. The day care people are not happy with me. Thank goodness he only goes twice a week and will be starting solids soon.
