While we were there we went to Maggiano's, which if you are not familiar, is the best Italian restaurant EVER! It's family style dining with more food than should be legal to consume in one sitting. Honestly, Dave woke up feeling hung over and thought out loud, "Wow. I shouldn't have had so much to drink." And then he realized, he had not had anything to drink! It was a food hangover, and yes, it's possible. Anyway, we had wonderful company. Our good friends Jeremy and Lindsey (Emily's Godparents) and our friends Anne and Scott (who are expecting their first baby in September). The conversation was entertaining and started to cross the line before the first glass of wine, which is typical with that crowd! We can't wait to go back! We miss you Nashville!
Next weekend... Girl's weekend in Birmingham! It will be Emily's first girl's weekend!

This week Dave was out of town for work in Nashville. We missed him, and he missed us. While he was gone I tried giving Emily some cereal again and she really seems to be taking to it. Much better than last month. Now she is opening her mouth really wide (and laughing), reaching for the spoon (and laughing) and actually eating the cereal instead of pushing it back out (and laughing). She thinks eating is just one of the funniest things ever. She is barely getting an ounce or so each night of cereal, but right now we're just trying to get her use to the texture and taste and the idea of eating real food. It is going well. The good news is, that one little ounce of cereal seems to be sticking to her tummy because last night she slept from 7:30pm until 6am this morning. It was fantastic! We are surely going to stick with it and try a little cereal each night. In a week or two we might try some veggies or fruit. I know, we're pretty wild at the Chambless household! Watch out! :)
This weekend we are going to a baby shower for my good friend Courtney who is due May 5th. I am bringing Emily along because there will be a house full of women with baby on the brain. I'm sure she will be the star of the show... except for the mommy-to-be, that is. We even have her outfit all picked out! I don't have the gift yet, but Emily's outfit is already hanging on the back of the door. You can tell where our priorities are in our house. :o) I will be sure to post some pics.

There is one thing that has me feeling guilty. Dave and I just booked a Caribbean cruise for our four year anniversary! Part of me is so excited I can't stand it! The other part feels like the worst mother in the world for leaving my 7 month old for 5 days! Not to mention the deilema I am faced with regarding breastfeeding and pumping. How often can I pump while on the ship? Will she want to nurse when I get back? How much milk can I saved up before we leave? How will she handle not nursing at night before bed? I'm not sure what I am going to do, but I do know we are going, so I have 10 weeks to figure it out!

By Sunday morning we had about 6 inches of snow on the ground! Since we couldn't find the truck under all that snow we decided to stay home from Church. We snuggled on the couch and watched TV all day. A big "Thank You" to mother nature for a wonderful, much needed, weekend at home.
Next weekend's forecast...70 degrees!!!!!!
