Welcome newest Bairds!
Kelly's first cold--for real this time!
Baby and I are home sick with respective colds. She has had cold-like symptoms associated with teething, but this is the real thing. I think that her cough is keeping her from getting enough rest because she fell asleep in her high chair this morning, poor thing! We play in the bathroom a lot to get some steam therapy, but Momma is TIRED! Everytime I try to take a nap, she wakes up from hers. We need to coordinate them better! LOL! Hopefully, since we've been sick since Sunday-ish we should be getting better soon!
We hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving Holiday! We had our turkey day on Friday when the majority of the family could get together at Grandma and Grandpa Baird's. Colleen flew up from Virginia and Grandma Nina came from Boardman. Josh and Laura could only join us via webcam from Louisiana since Laura was due any day with the mystery twin cousins! On the menu for Kelly was sweet potatoes (her favorite!) and mashed potatoes. After dinner we cleaned her up in the bath where she was joined by her older cousins Silas and Sophie! We celebrated Sophie's first birthday on Saturday with a really fun Minnie Mouse-themed party. On Sunday we went to church with Grandma and played with Bella, Jackson and Alex after a pancake brunch. It was a great first Thanksgiving and we are thankful for the blessing of friends and family like you!
Gods and Gold-The Mayan Exhibit
The Baird family went on another adventure together, this time travelling cross-country by airplane to sunny San Diego, CA. Micah attended a conference for one of his specialties and did some networking about possible jobs for after residency. Baby and I explored San Diego while he was in class. We especially enjoyed Balboa Park with its many museums (the trolley driver called her "Kelly the Museum Girl")

New Baby Tips that Really Helped
Save all instructions! I keep a drawer (really a trundle storage box that rolls under her crib and is hidden by the dust ruffle) for all instruction manuals, proof of purchase, important packaging for all of Kelly's stuff. I know where to look when I need to find something baby related and if I need to take something back or consign it (worth more with packaging) I still have it.
I hid a $20 bill in the lining of my diaper bag for emergencies.
I use a drawstring mesh lingerie bag to keep baby socks together in the washer and dryer. I hang it by the string on the hamper and put socks in it everyday. Keeps the washer and dryer from eating them!
I started during pregnancy to stock up on essential supplies--I know most moms do this with baby supplies like diapers during their nesting phase, but I'm not sure if everyone stocks up on things like detergent, TP, tooth paste, etc. Mostly I started doing it because I have to drive pretty far to get to my nearest Trader Joes, but I found it easier to keep a stockpile in the garage on an old bookshelf than to have to explain to a tired husband or helpful friend, what to buy and where to get it.
When I need to shower we have bathroom funtime. I started putting Kelly in her bouncy chair and later in her exersaucer and she plays just on the otherside of the curtain so I know if she's cranky to hurry up!
