Lucky Duck

Isabel turned 3 months last week, and you'd think that it's her birthday by all the presents that came for her...

Another package from Down Under...This is her 3rd? 4th? Seriously, this child has more "friends" than we do. In it were the cutest stuff...absolutely love the hat...I had to put it immediately on Isabel. And those booties are the coolest! Thank you so much Godsister VN (and of course, Uncle C!)

And then there was a very classy packaged one from Ralph Lauren. That's from her uber posh Godmother Sher, of course. Love the summer frock, and the bloomers that came with it. I have a thing for bloomers...I am SO glad that I ended up with a girl!

There is also a beautiful hand-knitted blanket from a lady that I work with. Now, I've never met her (she works in the IL facility), and I don't particularly have a lot of communication with her. So I found it incredibly sweet of her to take so much time and effort to make something for Isabel.

Oh, and check out her pants that she's wearing today....Aren't they awesome? I think they are heel-arious. Thanks again, Godmother Hua!

With all the excitement of opening the presents, she was all knackered out by the end of it...Ah...the stressful life of being a baby...

No Updates

Not because I don't want to, but time has since been a precious commodity since returning to work 3 weeks ago.
If you peek into our windows on the weeknights, you'll be bored stiff as I go to bed the same time as Isabel does. My husband now plays chef, maid and errand runner in this household. I don't know what we would do without him.
To add to that, we are all sick. Isabel ended week 1 of daycare with a congested nose, and by week 2, she's coughing. By week 3, it's croup. Unfortunately, the 2 visits I had to the doctors resulted in nothing more than "Let us know if it gets worse". So we are stuck here, helpless while she coughs her little heart out. The little dear has been such a champ about it though, and she still smiles and laughs after a particular bad bout of body shaking coughs. Although she now hates the booger sucker with a passion and will scream the moment we come anywhere near her nose with it.
This sucks.
