Margaret turned one week old yesterday. To celebrate, we took her on her first car trip – to Woody’s pizza in Golden, where we met our friends from around the block – Rick, Alisa, and Tao.Meg wasn’t too wild about being in the car, but calmed down once it was moving. She is doing pretty well so far. Today she had her one-week checkup, and she is gaining weight – back up to 7 lbs 2 ounces. That makes us very happy.
Spencer continues to be very nice to his sister. Last night he was playing with some magnets that spell out his name, and at some point, he came over to give them to Meg. It seems like he will do a pretty good job teaching his little sister all he has learned about the world. Dave had to go home yesterday, which was sad for us all. Ellen is staying until Saturday, which is nice. It has been very helpful to have them around.
Other highlights of Meg’s first week include a walk around the duck pond, and lots of cuddling with Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa.
