Last night actually wasn’t a bad sleep night. And Milly is doing quite well, according to her two-week checkup. She’s put on a little over a pound in the last two weeks (not a huge surprise given how much she suckles the teat) and she’s in about the 75th percentile for her height, but about 50th for her weight, meaning she’s a long, skinny thing. That said, we don’t expect her to be tall most of her life.
I surfed with Michael this afternoon. He’s been out every day since last Friday, and I don’t mind saying I’m a little jealous of that. That’s what happens when you have a regular-hours job and a new baby though.
Lars showed up at 6:00, as he said he was going to, but I was heading in at that time because Nick and Amy were coming over to help us with some of our leftovers. Michael was heading in too, but I think they were going to go back out later.
After dinner Nick and I walked to the store with our minds set on picking up a dessert. We ended up with a cookie cake (which I saved $3 on with my Lowe’s Food card!). It wasn’t any extra to get a message put on it, and when we told the lady behind the counter that we were getting it for our wives who were back at the house with a baby each and asked for a suggestion for what to put on it, she suggested, “What the hell, you deserve this.” Nick and I liked it so that’s what she put.
After dessert we just sat around and watched a bit of TV. I got Milly to sleep by rubbing her brows like my mom used to do for us.
