The Sunday Post #55 (1.11.15) - a day late!

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey

I'm posting this a day late because I was on babysitting detail this weekend for my adorable 2 month old niece. My sister had to go up to Albany for a grad class she was taking and because she's still nursing the baby, I offered to tag along - selfishly I wanted some quality auntie-niece time!!! While at two months old, they don't really do much, I did get quite a lot of smiles and she definitely follows your voice. She loves being held and walking around, so we spent quite a bit of time walking back and forth in the hotel room (while listening to an audio book) and when I needed a change of scenery, we walked around the hotel. 

My sweet niece (2 months old)


Have a great week everyone!!!

  5. I miss when the The Tornado was 2 months old! There's definitely not much interaction but they're so snuggly at that age! Sounds like a good reason to miss the Sunday Post. Have a great week!
