2 months old!

Sunday, March 26, 2006
    We can hardly believe that Adeline is already 2 months old! She has changed so much and is getting more and more beautiful every day. Here are a few pictures we took in her cute little outfit from Aunt Ali and Uncle Jeff (thanks, guys!). Enjoy!

        Today we celebrated Andrea's 28th birthday. It mostly consisted of changing diapers, doing laundry and cleaning up spit-up... But, we also took advantage of our great friends Lindsey and Allison's babysitting skills and went out to dinner. We went to a place called the Harvard Cafe and enjoyed a hamburger and philly cheese steak sandwich. Good eatin'!

          Welcome Karis Lynn Langdon, born March 23 at 10:13am, 8 pounds 12 ounces and 20 inches long. She is the last of the babies to be born in Istanbul, hopefully we'll be able to get them all together soon for a picture!

            It's much cuter with sound, but we thought you would enjoy it anyway!

                "Okay, daddy... enough with the pictures!"

                #1 advantage to having a screaming baby...

                  a quicker escape from the broken elevator!!! On our way to visit Landon and his parents we got on the hospital elevator to go to the fifth floor. The elevator is made for only three people, so it was a little tight with Jeff and I, our friend Lindsey and the car seat with crying Adeline in it. Well, the elevator made it up about a floor and a half and then stopped. There was an emergency phone in the elevator, so Jeff called and explained that the elevator had stopped in between floors. It's usually not something I would encourage, but I think that Adeline crying most of the time we were stuck probably sped up the process of rescuing us! I always wondered what I would do if I were stuck in an elevator, and I am so thankful for Jeff and Lindsey being there. We may have had a little too much fun with it. Here are some pictures we took to pass the time!

                  How funny is Adeline's expression in the mirror?

                    40 Days

                      Tradition here is that mom and baby shouldn't leave the house until 40 days after delivery. Well, we have broken that rule a few times, but here are some pictures from our actual 40th day outing to the mall.

                      This is one of the three times Adeline has actually taken a pacifier - it is definitely not her favorite thing. And, we wanted to show off her cute little sweater and jeans!

                      This picture is amusing because although there is a sign saying "No Smoking", no one EVER complies. We're used to everyone smoking no matter where we are, but now we have shortened our trips to the mall and other places to try to keep Adeline out of the smoke as much as possible.

                          My first ride in the stroller.

                          "Mommy, why are you making us take a picture when I am starving?" (I liked her cute outfit with the tights, so I made her suffer through a picture.)

                          "Daddy swing"

                          Deep in thought? Nope, just poopin'! (Is that too much information for a blog post? Oh well!)

                          We never thought that Adeline would make it through a bath without screaming, but here she is, enjoying her bathtime and lounging in her Safer Bather (a great purchase if you ask us)!
