Busy Week










Virginia and I have been pretty busy so far this week and it is only Tuesday. Monday, I headed over to Katherine's house to visit her and Hannah her new baby. It was nice getting out of the house and having some girl talk. Having another friend to talk with about Mom things and the struggles we face was nice. It was cool that I actually had some knowledge to pass along to her. Hannah was a perfect angel. She even didn't mind the thousands of pictures that I was talking of her. The flash on my camera was a little intense, but Hannah was a champ.

After my visit with Katherine I headed over to Walmart to pick-up a few items that we needed. Virginia has been drinking milk like crazy now that I have quit breastfeeding her. She is completely off baby food so I have been trying to find new foods. I brought a couple of Birds Eye Steamfresh meals for her to try out.

That night we all headed over to Reiggin's parents house for dinner. Renee, Reiggin's mom, made some fried chicken, peas, corn, biscuits, rice, and gravy. It all was delicious. Virginia really enjoyed the rice and peas. She tried some chicken and biscuits as well. It was nice getting to visit and Virginia had a great time playing with Grandpa and Grandma Hilderbrand. I believe that we have figured out for sure that Virginia is allergic to dogs. By the time we left she was sneezing and coughing. This is no real surprise to me. Both me and Reiggin have bad allergies and I am allergic to dogs as well.

Come Tuesday, Virginia and I got all packed up and went to our first play group in Birkdale. I have been searching for a play group in Statesville, but have had no luck finding one. Last week I came across a website called Lake Norman Mommies. Sunday I had a email from a mom on the site inviting me to her play group. I was super excited for Virginia to be able to play with some kids her age and for myself to meet some new Moms in the area. The play group was a huge success. Virginia was the oldest kid, but the other kids were close enough in age to still have fun. Virginia played nicely and even walked around playing with a little girl in the group. I was glad to see that she was not shy the whole time. The funniest moment was when one of the boys came up to Virginia and tried to give her a kiss. Virginia turned her head quickly and climbed up into my lap. I couldn't help, but giggle. The moms were all very nice and also were close to my age. I look forward to the next play group.

Later that day I was looking on the mom's website and found on the calendar that a group of moms were going to have a bunco night Wednesday. So I emailed and asked if they still had room for one more. Luckily the mom emailed back and said the more the merrier. I believe I will be enjoying my first Moms bunco night Wednesday. I will be sure to let you all know how it goes.

Thursday I believe Virginia and I will go to the Iredell Children's Museum to meet up with a new group of moms and kids. This will be our first visit to the museum. I am excited to see how Virginia reacts to all the activities and kids. I think she will have a good time and hopefully I will meet some more wonderful moms.

So as you can see it seems like I will have a pretty adventurous week ahead of me. I will probably need the weekend to recover.

Did you go to the museum? We were there. Were you the mama walking in the mall with a single stroller talking on the cell phone? OMGosh, I thought you might be going to the group and I told my girlfriend to go and speak with you but then we couldn't find you. Wish you would have come in!

If that was you :)
