The family picnic at Grandpa and Grandma Swenson's on Sunday was a lot of fun! Liza got to meet the rest of her family members and of course they fell in love with her and I think Liza fell in love with her great-uncle Bruce! She couldn't take her eyes off of him and he got some of the biggest smiles I've ever seen out of her! Liza and I played it cool this week just hanging out and playing. Thursday I went to the Twins game with my mom and one of her friends. Grandma and Grandpa Filzen watched Liza because Brandon had to work and she actually got to travel to Marshall to watch Brandon's sister in Homecoming Court at Southwest State. That was the longest I had ever been away from Liza. It was hard to walk out the door but I think we both did ok. Brandon said that he could tell Liza missed me while I was gone...I'm still trying to figure out if he meant it or if he was just trying to make me feel better :-) Today Liza and I went to Lavonne's (The lady who will be doing her daycare) so Liza could meet her and the other kids at daycare. I think she had fun with the other kids!! They got a few smiles out of her even! That makes me feel a little bit better about taking her to daycare. Eventually I have to come to peace with the fact that I'm a working mom and daycare is just going to be a part of our life. I wish I just had one more month at home with her. She's starting to get to the age where she's smiling and cooing and responding to me and the things around her. I just don't want to miss any of her milestones.
Tomorrow we are having friends over and are grilling out because one of our high school friends from Wisconsin is home. I'm looking forward to it!
That's it for now! Going to go spend some time with my beautiful family of 3!
Of course I can't let you go without a few pictures of my lil cutie!
