Outside Time and Reading

We finally got some outside time to play earlier this week with Izabel. She walked around the front yard with some of her balls but she was mostly watching the kids across the street and Daddy cleaning out the gutters (I don't know what came over him!) I think she enjoyed the outside time and so did we. Now that things are calming down a little at work I can get home a little earlier and hopefully have more of this time in the afternoons if it stops raining!

Izabel has been really getting into her books lately. She'll pull her boppy pillow down onto the floor and sit it in it with some of her favorite books. She'll flip through the pages like she is reading and sometimes she'll laugh at the pictures. She looks like she is lounging and it's so cute. That always makes me smile but nothing makes me smile more than coming into the room and seeing her in Noah's lap with him reading a book to her. It is so sweet and I think they both really enjoy this time together! Of course every time I grab the camera she thinks reading time is over but I'll get some pictures! Soon she'll have to share Mommy and Daddy time so for now she is getting all she can!

On Saturday Noah let me sleep in a little bit and then we all got ready and drove to Williamsburg to meet up with my parents. After lunch we went to the outlets and did some damage to the credit cards! Izabel made out the best. She did the best at Carters. Noah did pretty well too. I got a pair of shoes and a big multi-image picture frame for our living room. Obviously I need to work a little harder at finding some clothes for me! I just can't seem to find anything I like right now and I don't want to buy a lot because I know my size is going to change. I went in the Motherhood store but I didn't find anything I liked. The last time I needed to shop in there they had the kind of pants that would grow with you. This time all they had were the pants with the big belly panels and I don't need those yet! Then we all went out to dinner. Izabel couldn't have been any better all day. She rode around in her stroller watching all of the people and then she took a nap while we were shopping. At dinner she ate food off the menu which is so much easier than bringing jars and trying to feed her while I am trying to eat. Then we went back to my parents hotel room. Izabel was so tired so she had a bottle and my parents offered to keep her for the night and bring her home with them on Sunday. Since I am completely exhausted lately I was fine with that idea. Noah and I went home and to bed. I got to sleep in without hearing people moving around the house and it was great! Izabel slept all night for my parents and they actually had to wake her up so everyone got a good night's sleep! Then Sunday we just laid around the house. I have caught Izabel's cold so I feel pretty miserable and we needed to have a lazy day. Now we are back at work for the week with no big plans! Izabel's birthday invitation is going out soon so be looking for that and have a great week!
