We're here! Yesterday was a long day, but I really can't complain. Liv slept the entire first flight and most of the second flight, which was 4 hours. It was nice, but not so nice to have a sleepy and sweaty 26lb baby on your lap for half the day. I was very surprised though. I thought that Liv would want to get down and get angry when she couldn't. She didn't try to get down once. I don't know if it was all the strangers or so much going on around her, but she stayed happily in my lap.
Liv was pretty funny at times. She loves air blowing in her face. Fans, wind, or even if you simply blow in her face....loves it. So she loved the air coming down on us! She kept leaning her head back and smiling when it would blow her hair! Every time we landed, I would say "we're here!" and Liv would wave, kind of like she was saying hello toronto and then hello calgary :).
Pat gets into Calgary tomorrow night around 8. I'm so excited that I can't think about it. I can't believe its here!
I haven't updated in awhile, and Liv had a well visit last Thursday with Dr. Mackie. This is the first appointment where Dr. Mackie said she was developmentally ahead of the curve. Obviously the fact that Liv is walking is most likely the reason he said this, but I was surprised because at no other did he say that...its just crazy how she changed so fast. It was my favorite appointment so far because there were no vaccinations! We also got the go-ahead to start mixing formula and whole milk at 11 months. Its something I've been considering so I was glad to hear Dr. Mackie was comfortable with that too. Liv doesn't have another appointment until she's a year...and you can bet I'm making Pat hold her hands down this time when she gets her shots!
I have a bunch of pictures that Dani took when she came home last weekend to see us before we left. The American flag bikini she is wearing is from my mom. She wanted her to have one for the 4th of July while she was in Canada :).
ha...they were pouring water from a bottle and she was trying to drink it
