This week I got a lot of reading done. At least, more reading than I did in the previous weeks. I had some pretty fun books to read, and they were all amazing and totally met my expectations. Some even exceeded my expectations. I love when that happens!

On Tuesday a girlfriend who I hadn’t seen in a while visited us. We had some serious catching up to do and obviously we talked a lot about Rosanne and babies. Funny how the subjects we talk about change so much over the years. On Wednesday my grandma visited. It’s so fun to see her with Rosanne, her great-granddaughter. 
On Thursday Rosanne had to get her second shot. The doctor checked everything again, and Rosanne is doing very well. The doctor gave us a referral to a physiotherapist who will help us do some exercises to make sure her positional preference to the right doesn’t get worse. So far so good. 

Friday I wasn’t feeling all too well. My throat felt terrible and had this bad stomach ache. So baby girl and me stayed home. Rosanne seemed to feel it was necessary to take it slow, because she slept a lot while I did some reading under a blanket on the couch. It was a perfect day, and today (Saturday) the husband and I are going on our first date since baby girl was born. Rosanne is going to my mom and we are going shopping and having a drink etc. It’s the first time I’m leaving Rosanne and although I know it’s good for her and me, and I will have to leave her much longer when I go back to work, it’s still hard. But she turned 3 months old yesterday, so I definitely need to get some time alone with the husband.

  3. I'm glad you are spending time with your hubby. I didn't realize how important it is for many years. I think I devoted myself a bit too much to my kids.

    1. Yes, it was something we agreed upon before I even got pregnant. We have to make time for each other and have date nights! I think your definitely not the only one who devoted every bit of herself to her kids. Nowadays you get encouraged as parents to have date nights, that wasn't always the case.
      Happy Reading!
