Last weekend Joe's mom drove down to the Cities with Joe's Lindell grandparents. Mickey and Leona flew down to Arizona on Sunday for some warmer temperatures. It was very nice to see them. Erik and I didn't get a chance to say goodbye, since he had an extreme blowout moments before they had to leave, but we called them later and said goodbye over the phone.
It was warm enough today that Erik and I were able to go for a walk to the post office. He's very mellow in the stroller. I forgot to go by the park today. Monday Erik sat in the baby swing for a few minutes. He loved it. It will be fun when winter is over and daily walks start again. Erik will be big enough to really have fun in the baby swing.
We were invited to dinner tonight at the home of some new friends, Natalia and Chad. We met them in our birth class last winter and their daughter, Alexsandra, is just five days younger than Erik. Natalia is a food scientist, so dinner was fabulous. We had homemade bread, salmon in phylo dough, with pineapple upside down cake for dessert. It was fun to meet their neighbors as well. The three babies are old enough now that they really enjoy playing together. Erik was in Alexsandra's Exersaucer when baby Moddy came. She loved standing by the Saucer and playing with the toys. Erik kept reaching out to touch her hand. It was very sweet.
Natalia took pictures so I'll post them when she emails them to me.
