Week in Review

Wow. I'm having a hard time even remembering back one week. Let's see...

Last Monday, my dear friend Elaine came to visit, and thoroughly made Nourit's day since she played with her the entire time. Elaine was one of the first people to welcome me to Hyde Park through MTHP, five years ago, and who gave Nourit her precious Dodo. ~ We spent quite a few days just going to the playground, and then Thursday, Grandma arrived! (Oh, the screams of joy!) We had a picnic at the Point (our first of the summer, I'm afraid.)

Friday was appointment day. We drove to the far end of Lincoln Park just to visit a pediatric dentist who got rave reviews by Nourit's pediatrician and our dentist. With Nourit's fear of doctors (apparent every time a man in a white lab coat addresses her), I was willing to go out of network and out of my comfort zone of Hyde Park to find someone who could get her to say "ahhhh". Well, we hit the jackpot. Dr. Morin was wonderful and Nourit got a good report on her teeth. (And he was so adorable I just had to take his picture!)
Yes, he is a doctor, even though he doesn't wear a white coat.

Next was Avi's 6 month appointment with Dr. Schwab. She weighs 14lbs 13ounces, and is 26 inches long, and is perfectly healthy.

Saturday morning, we made our usual trek to the market/garden/coffee shop, but then had an impromptu picnic with some other old friends (well, old for our time here!) Where? The Point!

Sunday we went to church, came home for lunch and naps, then had a nice visit with our friends Viola, Marek, and Jacob (Kubi), and their young friend Anja, who was visiting for the summer from Poland. The evening ended with Nourit peeing on the floor. (But today she's 4 for 4!)
Avi just learning to sit up this week, playing trains with Kubi.

Although she's too young to step foot in the Lyric, Nourit created her own "Opera Sunglasses." I wonder if there's a market for them...

You know, a couple seconds with iphoto and you can get rid of all of those red eyes, and crop out the bad pictures of your husband!
