Two Weeks Old...

She's two weeks old already. It's crazy how quickly the time has flown, but at the same time it feels so perfectly normal to have Eliana here as a part of our family. It's not like I can't remember what pre-Ellie life was like, but this life seems very good to me. Admittedly, I do miss the days of running to Costco or Walmart without lugging an awkward baby carrier. I have to plan a little better, and I think twice before going out. But she doesn't exactly keep me confined to the house, and I like that. In fact, we're planning on attending the "Bite of Bozeman" tonight. We go every year and enjoy walking down main street, waiting in long lines for yummy food. We'll probably put Eliana in her sling and spend an hour or two strolling down Main with most of the area's residents. It's supposed to be in the 70's this evening, so it should be nice weather for being out and about.

when sam was two weeks old we went to see LOTR!!! he ate and slept through the whole movie!! (and peed on me too while i was changing his diaper) i'd say you have till about 6 months old, then it's hard to take them "out" like on dates and stuff.

The Bite of Bozeman sounds fun! And I bet Ellie will sleep through the whole thing. How fun!

It's probably harder to take them out when you have more than one, too. At least by the time they're 6 months you can leave them with a sitter (or hopefully trade kids with friends for an evening date alone...)

I am so glad that you are faithful in posting things on your blog. I look forward everyday to seeing/ reading the new news in the Wickland family. Ellie has already grown up so much in the past two weeks. And you say that she is already rolling over? WOW! Oh, I have so much more to say, so I think that I will just call you tonight- yep that is all that there is to it.
