We spent Sabine's first Thanksgiving with the Folkerths: Ned, Megan, Eamon and Henry. Lots of good food and laughter.

Grandma and Grandpa visit

We had a nice visit with Jerry and Carol. They enjoyed hanging out with Sabine, especially in the early morning hours. Carol cooked some delicious meals and Jerry helped us with some stuff around the house - who knew a furnace had a filter? No wonder it's been freezing in here. Too bad they left a few hours too early to witness the Saints give the Packers a good trouncing.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Thanks Papa!

This weekend Bine had a bottle for the first time. Pete stayed up with her all night both Friday and Saturday and gave me a break. It was the most consecutive sleep I've had in a little over a month. Very exciting for me! Thanks Papa, I love you.

A visit from Oma

We had a great visit from Oma (Heather's mom) this past week. She jumped right in with full-on baby support. She did lots of cooking and cleaning, and we felt really spoiled. Not as spoiled as Lucy that is, since Oma snuck her treats when we weren't looking. Oma covered for us on Saturday night so we could have a dinner date at our favorite restaurant, where we ran into Heather's boss who looked at us curiously as we were dinning without a baby. Could that whole pregnancy/disability leave have been a scam? Nah... This blog is official proof, right?

So, we're on our own for about about ten days until Jerry & Carol arrive. Heather has been doing so great, she continually amazes me with her mommy-skills - plus she fit in her pre-pregancy jeans and was looking mighty fine.
