Danielle has some adorable Valentines outfits and jammies that she has been sporting yesterday and today, we love them! One is from 'auntie' Melissa in Florida and the other from Auntie Ellie, and Grammie sent some fun toys and a very cute bib all the way from PA for the special day, thank you!!
Danielle is weighing in at 14 pounds 6 ounces this week. Our in-home nurse came yesterday and Danielle got her Synegis, the RSV shot. Danielle didn't like that one bit! But at daycare Michelle had a super fun Valentine party for the kids, so that made up for the shot she got in the morning. They each came home with lots of goodies and very cute Valentines cards.
Today we are relaxing and enjoying the sunshine and unfortunate snow that is now covering the ground once again. We are going out for a very nice family dinner tonight and we are very excited! Last weekend it was almost 60 degrees and we were able to actually get out of the house for a fun family day. We went to the Outdoor show in Iowa City and ventured to the mall and got Zoey's pizza for dinner. It was very relaxing and we all needed some well deserved fresh air, out of the house! We took advantage of the warmer temperatures that is for sure, but still being very cautious of the nasty RSV, Pneumonia and other sickness' going around right now!!
Our little miss Danielle is just doing great. Growing and thriving and being such a happy baby all of the time. Still wanting to be held a lot, but as you can see from the pictures she is really loving her play time and especially play time in the Bumbo too. Sometimes Dylan misses his Bumbo days and decides to sit himself back in it himself! But for Danielle Bumbo time is really helping strengthen those back and neck muscles to help her learn to sit up! The days sure are flying by and she is really changing in looks too. Her hair has started to lighten up a bit more on top in the middle. We are curious to see what color her hair will be. After the bath it is very light then it turns more dark when it drys which is the complete opposite of what mommy's does! Time will tell.
We keep praying that Danielle grows strong and is a healthy and happy baby girl. Here are a few random pics of the kids together. Dylan is now very interested in Danielle and wants to know where she is at all times. If she is in her crib taking a nap he will stand outside her door and say 'baby', when he hears her cry at the opposite side of the house he goes running saying 'baby' 'baby', with concern in his voice. He will be a great big brother.
We love you baby girl, Happy Valentines Day! ~
