Camping Time

Isabelle finished the first 100 books of her 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program at the Waukesha Public Library this week - only 900 more to go!  We went to the library with our neighbor Lilly to get her a book bag and a new reading log.  We have been busy reading all of the Dr. Seuss books (there are a lot!), as well as The 20th Century Children's Book Treasury.

Isabelle also rolled over for the first time this week from her back to her belly.  She is becoming really aware of everything around her - sounds, people, objects - and is quickly out growing her 3-month clothes!  

On Friday Isabelle went on her first boat ride on great Gido's boat the Tiedami on Lake Winnebago.  She got to drive the boat with Gido and didn't mind the life jacket too much! I took her camping with the Klowak's for our annual cousin campout (after a 10 year break).  It was great to see all of the Klowak family and Isabelle meet her cousin Henry for the first time!  He is a year older than her and they had lots of fun getting to know each other.  Camping is much different when the little ones are around, but Isabelle much better than expected.  She slept great in the tent (twelve hours the first night!) and loved looking at the campfire.  All of the fresh air must have tired her out!

Our New Home

Exciting news for us this week...we bought our first home last Tuesday in Lomira!  It's only a few minutes away from my work and we are looking forward to moving in and getting the place together in the next few weeks.  I have been busy finishing up grad school for the semester and getting use to a new schedule of going to work during the week.  Time is going by super fast - somedays, it seems like we just too take her home from the hospital.  I feel like I just got use to her schedule and it has been an adjustment for all of us!  We are excited for our new adventure :)

First Mother's Day

Today we celebrated my first Mother's Day!  DJ had to work all day, so my parents took Isabelle and I to breakfast.  We spent some time with DJ's parents and then I used the rest of the day to catch up on some homework.  I started my new job in Lomira this Wednesday and we have been spending a lot of time looking at houses, so it was a very busy week for us!

And here is Isabelle's 3-month picture from last week!

Our First Trip to 409

Isabelle is getting bigger every day!  Her new favorite thing to do is put all of her fingers in her mouth at one time - sometimes both hands.  We got her some new toys for her car seat a few weeks ago and it's so fun to see her finally playing with them!  Still not quite rolling over yet, but she's getting very close.  Bedtime is still going well.  I  got her a few CDs at the library the other day and she loves to listen to music before she goes to sleep at night.  We also tried a couple of bits of a banana :)

On Sunday, DJ and I and my parents took Isabelle to Neenah to meet my Great Baba and Gido's house.  They recently got back from Arizona for the winter and we had so much fun visiting with everyone!
