11.08.09 - Great weekend

We are at Mimi's and Grandpa's house right now, just finishing up a family dinner.  This was a great weekend.  Yesterday my dad came up to watch Liam while Dustin and I went and did some shopping and went to dinner.  It's funny, Liam and I are both in-between sizes right now...I am too small for maternity clothes, but still have a few pounds to lose before I can wear my regular clothes and Liam is between a newborn size and 3 month size, so we went clothes shopping for the both of us!  It felt so nice to get ready, fix my hair and do my makeup - I have been living in pajamas and sweats for a couple weeks now.  Dustin and I got to enjoy a lovely dinner at Maguires by ourselves, thanks to Liam's Gigi Ehrlich. 

Today we took a trip to Bedford to my parents house, Mimi and Grandpa, for a family dinner.  We tried out the portable feeding system and it seemed to work fine.  We also tried out a new take-along swing, that I, yes me, put together all by myself!  It is the only piece of baby equipment I can say I put together, but that's why I married Dustin - he's a genius at stuff like that.  I just want to say too, thank the Lord for my wonderful parents - they have really been our support system through everything.  We could not have gotten through this without them and we are so thankful for everything they continue to do for us. 

Well I can't say I got a lot of sleep this weekend, as Liam is getting a little colicky towards his midnight feeding, it was nice to get away for a day and spend time with the family.  I am getting really excited for Thanksgiving though, as Dustin's family will be in town and we will be having a big dinner at our house.  Only a few weeks away!
