Summertime... and the livin' is easy

Calli stays home with hubby (sometimes to be referred to here as Dada from now on) and sometimes Nonna. Nonna comes and goes as Dada needs her and therefore Calli is SPOILED with love and attention. Nonna likes to hold Calli as she snoozes and spends most of her time entertaining her. So it's no surprise to me that on the weekends and at night Calli needs lots of entertaining and likes to be held for most of her naps. Ugh. I'm lucky that she doesn't expect to be held while she sleeps at night too!!
Nonna is a huge help to us and makes dinner almost nightly and is not adverse to the most smelly and messy diapers. But what Calli really loves is spending time with her Dada. She looks to him all the time and you can see how much she loves him.
This weekend a friend from our college days came to visit and meet Calli for the first time. It is amazing to see how much Calli loves to smile and play even with new people. She wanted to take us all out for a fancy dinner but I was hesitant not having taken Calli anywhere fancy yet. I had visions of blow-out poops and wailing and throwing her rattle (her newest toy). So we stayed home and ordered an amazing meal in. Just as fun. 
On Sunday we took her for a swim for the first time and she seemed to like it; there were no wails or crying so I'm assuming that she liked it. We also took a shower for the first time last night and again no wailing or crying so I assume she liked it. It was hard to look at her face and clean her at the same time.  Also a first, we decided to try a restaurant for dinner with just Dada and me. She was amazing. She ate her bottle in peace and played with her toys quietly while we ate. She also was sufficiently cute to all the waiters and other guests. Huge day of first that all went
super well.

Hope you are all enjoying the summer!
