Another busy week....doing what?

The weeks are just flying by. Marissa is now 7 1/2 weeks old and doing well. This week she had visits from my buddy Markakis, as well as John and Carol who have a 19 month old of their own. Two other neighbors wanted to see her, but one wasn't available when we were home. It's crazy times. This morning I was up at 5:15 to soothe, feed and change her, and just stayed up. I'm probably going to pay for that later.

Last weekend, Marissa had a visit from LL's aunt, uncle and cousin. Tonight, LL's sister comes into town to meet Marissa and tomorrow my buddies from tailgating (the Punke's and Gar) are stopping by to meet her before we go to the Cubs game.  Busy times.

Speaking of the Cubs, last night I went with John and we had fun catching up. We were always roommates when we traveled for softball, but he quit 3 years ago now and since we both have children, we don't see a ton of each other. The night before, LL and I went to see the Blackhawks first playoff game of the year against the Minnesota Wild. The Hawks won in OT! We were not going to be able to stay past the first overtime period because LL was going to have to pump. If you don't know, not pumping or feeding the baby can really make you uncomfortable. She was a trouper to hold out as long as she did, and with 3 minutes left in the first OT period, the Hawks scored the game winner.

Some of the clothes bought for Marissa by Markakis and LL's cousin, who works down at Disney in Florida.

We had some beautiful weather for a day or two and out came the flowers. Look at this beauty!!

At the Hawks game on Tuesday! Our neighbors, who have a 9 month old, were MORE THAN HAPPY to watch Marissa. It seems like the wife is ready to have another as she misses the baby stage already.

Oh the danger of that missing the baby people end up with half a dozen kids.

Life definitely revolves around baby at this stage, but it's worth it, isn't it? But you're starting your days now about the time that I do. I know that's not your style, but it comes with the territory!
