Counting Our Blessings

1. Becca is still feeling much better and we are having fun!

2. Wednesday night, Becca slept ALL night long...6 hours straight!

3. Thursday night, Becca slept ALL night long...5 1/2 hours straight!

4. Fergie has not thrown up in well over a week, even after we've run out of her medication. Our guess is that changing her food is what helped, not the meds anyway.

5. We got to eat a nice dinner at a restaurant without having to hurry or having to eat with one hand, while feeding Becca with the other. We took Javier, Erika and Francena to eat at the Venesian Inn on Wednesday night. We happened to get there at 8:30, only a half hour before closing time. Becca was sleeping when we arrived and ordered. But, sure enough, as were were being served our dinner, she decided it was time for her to eat too! As I was mixing a bottle, the sweet waitress offered to feed her so I could eat mine!! I swear, I'm not kidding! We were the only ones in the restaurant so she wasn't busy. She scooped Becca up and took her over where the other waitresses were sitting. They totally oohed and ahhed her and loved it. It was funny and we all enjoyed dinner. Guess that's the good thing about going right before closing, and it's a small place in a small town where people are nice :)

6. The Diva has been officially girlied up. See photo above--on our way to Venesian Inn. Becca's "Aunt Lisa" has properly outfitted her with enough hair bows to last her through college, but she doesn't have enough hair to wear them yet. So, thanks to Becca's friend Lily Grace and her mom MiKael (Lee's co-worker), Becca has a few infant hair bows. Very hesitantly, I put this one on I'm hooked! She is the most adorable thing I've ever seen! And, she's obviously happy too.

7. We enjoyed spending the week with Javi and Erika. Right before they left, he finally decided to hold Becca for the first time. She kindly rewarded him by filling her diaper. Poor Javi.


  1. Oh my gosh!!!!!!!! She has got to be the cutest thing ever! I miss her so much. i hate being so far away. :( I will be there sometime mid to late Aug. I can't wait to see you all. I love you so much. Keep posting pictures!!!


  2. I NEVER let Avery go ANYWHERE without a BOW...You'll be hooked, too! :)

  3. How sad to have to go back to work. You mean once you have a baby there is no sitting on the couch all day painting your nails while eating ice cream?!?! That is disappointing! I love the pic of Becca smiling and i love her bow! All little girls need bows!
