Magdalena's Family Blog

27 March 2006


Hooray!! We had spring weather today. Well, spring for Georgia; for the Czech Republic, it's not unusual for a summer day to feel like today. It was 21C/70F and absolutely beautiful! Magdalena and I went out with her stroller for a walk around our "sidliste" (apartment complex) for about 45mins. Ah, so refreshing!

My little nephew is on his way being born! We are excitedly awaiting his birth. Magdalena is so excited that she didn't nap today after finding out Samuel would arrive soon. By evening, when he still hadn't been born she got grumpy. I tried giving her a pacifier and she looked at me very confused but she didn't cry or refuse it. Granted, it didn't stay in her mouth more than about 3 or 4 seconds because she doesn't know how to hold it in! Tonight after Petr put her to bed, I heard a slurping sound from the bedroom and quickly went to investigate, thinking perhaps she had spit up and it was preventing her from breathing properly. No, it wasn't spit-up. It was her thumb! Magdalena has discovered that thumbs are much better than silicone pacies. Sorry, no the time she was fully asleep and I got the camera, she'd already removed her thumb from her mouth.

We had three visitors today! Aunt Sunny arrived a little before 5 and ate dinner with us then washed the dishes (what a great friend!) while I bathed Magdalena and Petr searched for an internet provider who services Sunny's building. A little after 6 Carrie and Marketa arrived. It was lovely to see pictures of their visit to the States in the summer. But, it was even better just talking with them because it's been nearly a year since we've seen each other! They brought an adorable Pooh t-shirt and cute little socks to match for Magdalena. I can't wait for her to wear them! : )

Samuel Lincoln finally arrived at 6:06 p.m. today, March 27, 2006! He weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and is 20 1/4 inches long. He's beautiful! And he can't wait to meet his cousin, Magdalena! I'll talk to you Tuesday. Love you!
