Sunshine, Shopping, and Surprises

"Hanging with Big Baby Head and Monkey"

For the last few days we have had really nice weather for Southern California. Probably about mid 70's during the day and perfectly cool at night. It really doesn't feel like the beginning of February, but its so nice that I don't mind.

So this weekend has been a little crazy for us. It all started when my mother-in-law called us to have dinner with them on Friday night because Jai's brother Jason was in town from Colorado on business. After dinner we hung out at my in-laws house with the family. Just as we were about to leave my mother-in-law got a phone call that sounded like someone was seriously hurt. Then we found out that it just was her normal over-reaction to finding out that her daughter Jessie just had her baby. So we all packed our stuff at 9:15pm and headed off to the hospital. There we all met our new niece (except for Lizzie) Kendal Bailey Ellis who was only a few hours old. After a few more hours, we left the hospital and got home in time to pass out right before midnight.

Saturday morning was filled with laundry, dealing with an extremely tired baby and going to the store to get medicine for Elizabeth's first diaper rash and a few new binkies that don't irritate her sensitive skin.

We then went shopping at a local outlet mall to get Jai some new pants. Lizzie celebrated by:
wearing her sunglasses
and passing out halfway through.

Not only did we get Jai some shorts and jeans, but we also found a perfect outfit for baby Jeffs. As we were in a children's clothing store, Jai points across the store and told me that was the outfit that he wanted to get him. I would tell you what it was, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for Kelli. We will see you soon, so you don't have to wait too long to find out.

Our weekend isn't over yet. Stay tunned for our next few posts "Lizzie meeting the new baby" and "The Eight days of Valentine"
