A day out

Warm New England days in March are something to jump on. If you blink you could miss it and be found in August under a dirty mound of melting snow.

Ellie is truly on the mend - thank god. This was her first day out for fun in a long time. We took her to a maple sugar fest and then, of course, to Pete's. She was happy to be there and hang with us, lap hopping between mama and dada playing songs on her phone for us to sing.
We then went to the toy store and she picked out this little guy. We haven't named him yet but "Norbert" pops into my head every time I see him, must be some Harry Potter remnant. I will keep you posted. (Notice the shiny new hardwood/hard won floor beneath him.)

She has been all smiles and giggles. It's great to see her getting stronger. For all of you moms of former preemies and moms of children with weight gain issues - you know what that is like. Two steps forward, 1 kilo back. I am glad we are on the road back just the same.

If I do say so myself, she is a cutie and dada is not so bad either. Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes and kind thoughts when she was doing poorly.
