night we ended up having dinner at Mike and Nancy's, along with Ben
and Liz. We really didn't know how Mike and Nancy's dog, Aji, would
react to Ashlyn...or vice versa. Surprisingly, Aji loved Ashlyn, and
was fiercely protective. Any
time the baby made a sound, Aji would come running to scope out the
scene. Ashlyn was...well, she
was indifferent. Although she did find Aji's constant licking a fascinating
sensation. Mike made us a traditional Irish corned beef and cabbage
dinner (even though he's not Irish), and then we hung out and watched
This morning Aric and I got up early to attend a Bridal Fair with Ann and Phil at the Hilton in Costa Mesa. I have to say that it was the nicest Bridal Fair I've ever attended. I enjoyed all the different booths and vendors' displays...especially the cakes!
We spent most of the day there. Afterward, Aric and I grabbed a late lunch, and headed home. I took a nap with Ashlyn while Aric worked on the computer. We had dinner with Ben and Liz at Macaroni Grill. We had made these plans early in the week...not knowing that we were going to see each other at Mike's last night (which was an added bonus). Both Ben and Liz are so good with Ashlyn...they offered to babysit for me. Be careful what you say, because I WILL take you up on that offer!
Speaking of Ashlyn, she turned three months old today! So what have I noticed about her this month? She smiles a lot and is beginning to learn how to laugh. She drools like it's nobody's business. She stays awake longer during the day and she can easily sleep 10-12 hours straight! She can steady her head while sitting up (assisted, of course). She "talks" and "sings" all the time now...and loudly! She loves attention. She is so playful. She is so much fun!
Today was a long day...I'm pooped! Hoped y'all had a great weekend!
