That evening, Ben attended a hockey game with some coworkers and clients, so it was my first time navigating bath/bed time with all 3 kids. Usually Olivia's fussiest time of day is during the kids' bath and bed time routines, but thankfully she wasn't fussy at all!
Saturday not only marked Olivia's very first blow-out diaper (I will spare you the details of that one), but what we believe to be her very first smiles! Smiling is definitely one of my favorite baby milestones and although we weren't sure at first that they were intentional smiles, after she continued to give her little gummy grin every time Ben talked to her, it was undeniable that she was smiling for real. I'm excited for her to practice this skill more in the days to come! We even captured a few photos of her first smiles:
Sunday marked the first time I have been REALLY sick since being a mom of three. Thankfully, Ben was able to take the older kids to church in the morning so that I could get some much needed rest. He was also very helpful the rest of the day, caring for me and the kids (and even getting pizza for lunch!), and after a few doses of antibiotic, I'm already on the mend. I'm hoping I can continue to feel better throughout today, but I'm thinking we'll still be spending the day in our pj's while watching a few movies so that I can get some rest.
