Family movies and Rocking Chair

This weekend we went to the movies to see "Fred Claus" - all three of us! On Saturdays and Sundays for the months of November and December, some of the theatres around here are offering "Movies for Families" which is the same concept as "Movies for Mommies". There was only one other couple in the whole theatre so it was practically a private screening. Their small baby didn't really make any noise and neither did Liliane. And the movie itself was great! Cute and funny and heartwarming, too. Even Stéphane didn't mind it. These aren't great pictures, but we thought we should document Lilane's first movie outing...


Not too much else going on... Woke up this morning to see snow! It has already turned to rain, but it's on the ground for sure. The next couple of days should be pretty slushy. Winter is indeed coming. Sigh. Oh well, in the meantime it makes me think of Christmas.

So Liliane is five weeks old today. This is the beginning of our third week at home just the two of us. I would like to say that we have a routine worked out but since her schedule seems to change everyday, we pretty much take each day as it comes. I try to go out with her at least once a day and at least plan something for dinner even if I can't start making it until Stéphane gets home. Some days are super easy, she falls asleep and I can put her in her vibrating chair (like right now) but some days she just prefers to be fussy and not fall asleep. If she does take a nap, it has to be on Mama and forget trying to put her anywhere else.
I took this of her yesterday when I could finally put her down without her waking up and squawking:

I almost forgot to post the picture of our new rocking chair! Here it is:


We also took these almost-smiley face pictures on the weekend while rocking in the new chair:
My goal tonight is to learn how to use the breast pump! I want to sing in the church choir for Christmas this year and Stéphane is up for staying home with the baby while I go to practice but he will need to be able to feed her! I'm hoping that it's not too difficult. I'll report back on that.
