It was a wonderful week! Don't get me wrong, it included some tears, oh no's, mommy taking deep breaths, and daddy seriously considering moving into the garage, but it was a good week :)
Rose continues to amaze me, make me laugh, and give me wrinkles all at the same time with her developing personality.
Here she is impersonating how mommy works.
We also had Rose's 1 month post-cast check-up on Wednesday. We started off the day having breakfast with Nana, that was a really nice treat for all of us!
The doctor was very pleased with Rose's progress and while she still has a couple of degrees to go to regain full range, he said she will get there and he has no concerns :) YAY!
Since we were soooo close we also made another trip to Trader Joe's. We got some favorites from last time and a couple new items including these apple fries....amazing!!! (I also mistakenly picked up veggie corn dogs rather than the turkey corn dogs we got last time...I'm not sure how that's gonna go....)
Oh and I have been trying to encourage some block and building play...Rose had other ideas of what to do with the blocks :)
So here's the two things Rose does love the most right now, her babies and kitchen...with SOAP!
Rose is approaching the big 3...and our little baby is not looking (or acting) much like a baby. There are very few things that we have as part of our routine from when Rose was a baby. One of those things we had left was the crib. It seems somewhere between 1-3 years most children are transitioned out of their cribs and into a bed. After redoing our bedtime routine with Rose around 10 months, she has been sleeping so well and never tried to climb out of her crib, we decided not to mess with it :) Rose will be 3 in April so we decided to get a 'big girl' bed. Since Rose is already able to safely climb in and out of our bed, we decided to skip over the toddler bed and just get a regular bed. I looked around at different options and thought a daybed would suit the space in Rose's room. We looked around and found one at IKEA that looked great. We had never been to IKEA before and so headed out after our trip to the farmer's market on Saturday.
Rose took this pictures of some yummy strawberries from the market :)
I am not going to recount the trip to IKEA, right now we would probably rather forget it. Someday when we read over this blog post and think about the trip, the retelling of the potty stops and trip to Target will seem better when recounted to Rose with a few embellishments ;)
Anyway, we probably had the quickest ever shopping trip to IKEA. I think we were in and loaded up within an hour. I really want to go back and just browse around!
Luckily, Rose loved the bed I had in mind, so that part was easy. So we said 'good-bye' to the crib and 'hello' to a Rose's first 'big girl' bed!
Rose insisted on orange sheets...I shouldn't be surprised since she had an orange cast. They didn't have any at IKEA, so Rose picked out the sunshine pillow which she calls 'orange'. Sunday we went out for lunch with Nana and Papa and then did some shopping. I ran into BBB and found Rose her orange sheets!!!
We are super happy with how the bed turned out and Rose is sleeping like a 'big girl'!
After lunch and shopping we went to Pheobe to visit my grandpa who needs some rehab before returning home in another week or two. Rose was very helpful in taking great-grandpa to the church service.
We also found this beautiful origami bird mobile, this picture doesn't do it justices...it is REALLY huge!
We just had a busy and fun weekend! I love spending every moment with my little girl :)
