Magdalena's Family Blog

Being sneaky

Yes, that is an empty bottle in Petr's hand next to Magdalena. She accepted her first bottle on our second attempt. The first was a fiasco. She screamed and kicked and cried and, well, you get the picture. So, this time we were sneaky. In the middle of the night when she woke up, Petr got her and changed the diaper while I heated up the milk. Then I gave him the bottle, never speaking or touching Magdalena. Well, buddy, she lapped up all 4 ozs and then wanted more! Hmm, wonder if this acceptance will continue in daylight when she's not so tired and easily tricked...

Yesterday was beautiful spring weather again! I'm loving April so far. : ) We took a family walk for an hour or so. Most of the time Magdalena was awake and quietly looking around through her "sun roof." The rest of the time she slept -- even through a car alarm (definately got that from her mommy who has slept through several tornados and during a hurricane).

Today is a bit cooler, but still sunny! We're going in search of Dablicy haj (a forest park near by) this afternoon. Hopefully, we'll be successful in manuevering the bus with a stroller and can get some lovely pictures.

Did you find your forest? :)

Ah, sneakiness pays off! The picture of Petr is so cute (well, of course, Magdalena is too!). You can tell it is the middle of the night when he got woke up. But he and Magdalena both look very satisfied. What good news! Maybe now you will be able to leave them for short periods of time.

Love you!
