Baby Reunited with Grandfather, Maman... Who?

Gosh it was hard to get Liliane to warm up to my Dad when he was here this week...

She wasn't really that interested in him, you know?

She only wanted to hang out with Maman, her hero.

Ah ha! He gave her some Perrier! NOW she'll want to get down for SURE!

Yeah, not so much.

I clearly interrupted an inside joke for this one. Of all the nerve.

She had ALL KINDS of things to tell him.

Not ONE MOMENT where she tried to get down and come to me. Not one.

Which is the goal, right? Independant and happy children? I guess :)

It was completely adorable watching the two of them hang out. After we dropped her off at daycare the next morning, she apparently didn't sleep a wink at naptime and babbled all afternoon. I'm sure she was telling everyone all about her GRANDPA and how he came all the way from VANCOUVER and brought her a new pink SNOWSUIT and some new PJs and a SPARKLY BIRTHDAY CARD and gave her some MINERAL WATER and CHANGED HER DIAPER in the morning and let her play with his BLACKBERRY and made her LAUGH ALL THE TIME and who knows what other baby details... She was a little sad when we got home that night I think. I was a little sad too, baby and Grandpa misses you already!

We had a great, albeit short visit but it was such a treat! I got to have TWO MEALS at actual RESTAURANTS with GROWNUPS. Sorry about the excessive use of caps for emphasis, but I REALLY MISS THAT. Really.

Liliane is on the mend, although we're skipping swimming lessons again this week just in case. It's pretty chilly out today, a good minus 15 with the wind. The cold that she so kindly shared with both of her parents is really dragging on although it's not as bad as it was. Is it possible that we will all be free of viral infections in the near future? Although, tomorrow she and I have our flu shots so I'm bracing myself for another round of random, barfy side effects...

I found these photos in my camera:

Delicious grapefruit, goat cheese and pecan salad from last week. It's like eating sunshine!

Also last weekend we opened up this doll that she got for her birthday and she went crazy! It's hard to see in this picture, but baby has a soother attached to her shirt that you can put in her mouth and Liliane is obsessed with it.

Baby also goes in the bath! Hours of fun, people. Thanks for her Aunt Danielle and Uncle André as well as to our pal Manon who each gave us the same one. The baby is a keeper!

So we went to our new pediatrician last weekend and were so happy with our experience. Sure we waited an hour in the waiting room, but it was tidy and sort of efficient and our doctor is really, really lovely. She took her time getting all of Liliane's information and her history, she didn't make us feel rushed, she was sweet with her and obviously LIKES kids. Her diagnosis? Overall, Liliane is perfect. I'm not kidding, those are the exact words she used! Her eyes are totally fine although she gave me a referral to an ophthalmologist just to put my mind at rest. (Cataract surgery will do that to a person).

This weekend Stéphane is busy editing so Liliane and I will be taking it easy. Aside from our flu shots we have a couple of social events to attend and I will be bringing my other baby, our Canon Rebel camera, to the shop again to try and fix the same flash problem. Grrr. I might have to get a little Piercy on them (as Stéphane would say) because I missed some great shots this week.

A few more errands to do on this my child-free day (already got a haircut and got the groceries) so I'm off! Enjoy your weekend everyone, do something that is relaxing AND Christmassy because soon those two things may become mutually exclusive...

You do such a good job of telling the story with pictures. The Perrier pics are the best.
