Family Fun!

Our Caylee-bear turned 6 weeks old last Thursday!
Aside from being excited that she's growing so big and strong, we were excited for another reason: 6 weeks was the age our pediatrician said we had to wait to take her out!

Granted, I cheated and took her to the yarn shop at 5 weeks, but that was just a quick "mommy and me" trip to see a very small group of my knitting family members all of whom were healthy.  Here's a pic of Caylee with her big sis (and birthday twin!) Blair :-D!

At 6 weeks, we took her out to a public place with--*gasp*--strangers we didn't know present!  Lol.  Bryan and I decided to celebrate her (and our) 6 week milestone by having lunch at one of our favorite restaurants--Jason's Deli!  So, I got Miss Caylee all dressed up in a new outfit.  It's hard to believe, but she's already wearing 3 month clothing!

We loaded her into the car and went to lunch at about 1:30pm.  While it was a late lunch, it turned out to be perfect timing since we missed the weekday lunch crowd!  Jason's Deli was pretty empty, so Bryan and I snagged a booth near the back corner.  He had his Club Royale and I FINALLY had my turkey wrap!  After 9 months of abstaining, man did was it delicious!  Of course, we also had the free ice cream :-D.

Caylee did wonderfully!  On the way there, I sat in the back with her, and she seemed to enjoy that.  At least, she didn't fuss at all with me back there, so I'm assuming that was enjoyment lol.  She fell asleep halfway there and slept all the way through our lunch!  She woke up when we left and fussed on the way home, but seeing as she had a very wet diaper when we got back to the house, I couldn't really blame her!
No shoes?  No problem!  Lol.  
It was a wonderful first family outing!

This week has been Bryan's first week back to work.  He's been going in for half days to give us all a chance to transition slowly.  So far, it's been going just fine, though Caylee and I are both glad to see him when he gets home!  Next week will be the final transition of him going back to work full-time and Caylee and I continuing our routine here at the house without him--at least until he gets home in the evening!  It'll be an adjustment for all of us, but I know it'll end up being great!

Other than that, we've got a busy week this week.  Saturday morning is Caylee's Halloween mini-session with amazing photographer Carina with Kat's Photography, and I'm super excited!  Carina also did Caylee's newborn shoot, and she is extremely talented!  

As for me, I have lots of doctor appointments that I'm getting out of the way while Bryan's home in the afternoons--optometrist, dentist, etc.  My 6 week postpartum check-up is tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be back on methotrexate and hydroxycholoquin tomorrow as well!  I'm getting ready for knit night tonight--sans baby this time!  Saturday afternoon, I'm taking a magic loop class at PAY, and am looking forward to it.  Oh, and I rejoined Weight Watchers!  Since I can't run--or even go on walks at the moment--and I'm not yet cleared for water aerobics, it's time to attack this baby weight from the dietary end!  I had a lot of success last time, and am looking to repeat it!  So, wish me luck!  And hey look--another blog post!  Thank goodness for a wonderful baby who sleeps so well--mama still gets to enjoy her hobbies!
