Last weekend, Ash and I went to visit Janice, Darren, and Ellie. Our plan was to spend some quality time with their new baby Ellie and help a little with Ellie (our idea), dinner-preparation (our idea), and decorating her room (Janice's idea).
This baby is the best.
To that end, I slept in Ellie's room Friday night and patted her back to sleep periodically, and got up with her in the morning. I took 500 selfies with Ellie while I had her to myself. That's totally normal right? Haha.
The rest of the day we tried to do things like go shopping for the nursery but Janice would play goalie in trying to keep us from accomplishing things. We wandered around some box stores that had nothing we needed. We did go for a nice little walk around the park, and then we had fun baby bathtime.
Sink baths are the best!!
Sometimes it was hard to wrestle Ellie out of Darren's arms. Haha.
Sunday we were more successful. Ellie and I had morning time again but this time she slept the entire time. When Ash got up she took a turn snuggling.
This baby is hypnotic.
Just delicious flying baby is all.
We went shopping for nursery furniture and went to a nice lunch at Match in Arlington. We ordered a bunch of stuff and passed Ellie around while we ate. Afterward, Janice and Ash got milkshakes. Janice, Ash, and I had a really good time spending time together and catching up on everything. And my heart is full of baby Ellie.
Seriously, she's A DOLL!
Look, we're being helpful!
Ellie thinks I'm funny.
Pre-preparing some meals for Janice and Darren (Ellie doesn't eat food yet.)
