What's going on?

Not much actually! We are still trying to get into the new schedule with Rob working longer hours, later dinners, etc. I have to admit it was a little shocking last week but I am getting used to it and figuring out ways to make sure Maggie's schedule stays on track. I tried letting her stay up late to see Daddy before bedtime but that totally backfired on me!

We had a relaxing long weekend and took Maggie to the zoo on Friday. It was fun to see the animals but a tired baby and the long Metro ride home do not mix well! We got together with some friends for a Memorial Day BBQ which was a lot of fun and just caught up on our sleep.

Maggie is literally running around the house now and her new favorite thing is eating with utensils. She doesn't quite get the hang of it but will sit in her high chair for 45 minutes eating and practicing. She is becoming a bit demanding and can tell you exactly what she wants. Just now she saw the package for some animal crackers in the cupboard and from across the room she started pointing, making the sign for more and saying "mommy-mommy". Daily she will walk over to the stroller and try to climb in while pointing outside. She is so much fun though and is a really happy little girl. She waves at everyone she sees and is smiley all the time. I am so looking forward to introducing her to old friends and extended family this summer!!
