Afterwards we met up with Mark and Nicole at Pizzeria. Which means: I’ve been there 3 times in the past 10 days. eeek). You would think with so many pizza outings, Marlowe would be the #1 visiting baby at pizzeria, but she might not be! There’s Calvin, the cutest little baby with a mohawk. He’s just two weeks (or so) older than Miss Marlowe and he’s a total stud. We’ve run into him twice this week. I spy future boyfriend: older, mohawk, well behaved, great taste in food, and home brewing parents. Obviously he’s a winner.
After pizzeria, Eric brought my trike over from my brothers (which he had cleaned and tuned up for me earlier– so sweet. Seriously, he’s so too good to me) and we went on a few mile bike ride. Hopefully it preps me for later today when I will be attempting my first freak bike ride. At first I thought it was only 4 miles, then Eric said 6, then the last number he gave me was 8 miles. Eesh. I mean, I never ever work out (yes, I am skinny-fat) and I am completely out of shape, but I figure it’s gotta be easier than child birth…. right? Sure.
Also, a birthday package came in the mail for me! I got the best hand-drawn comic from Cassie, a painting of a duck (also from Cassie), and a crocheted pillow from Sara! So awesome. Pillow is already on the couch and the painting is already on the wall! I love them.
Other exciting things: Marlowe sits up now, by herself. Like, not just holds herself up, but can fully prop herself up into the siting position on her own. I laid her down in the crib, left the room, and went back in 3 minutes later to find her sitting up playing with her toys. I squealed so loudly with excitement! It was one of those moments where I wanted to call and text everyone I knew to let them know how excited I was (luckily for everyone I knew, I only called my mom and Eric). She then proceeded to try to pull herself up by gripping onto the side of her crib… she came close, but didn’t quite make it. Soon!
Also, Marlowe’s Barley & Birch package is on the way! I am seriously soooo excited. Marlowe is going to be the cutest kid on the block with her awesome new shirts. No, seriously— she’s going to look adorable in them.
