I realized last night that giving Lulu our dinner on the same night won't work out because we eat late (8ish) and she eats early (6ish) so she had her regular jarred baby food (pasta dinner, yum!) last night and I saved a little bit of the incredibly delicious Halibut I made and mixed that in with the potatoes for her dinner this evening. She was definitely hesitant eating this new food with it having much more flavor than she's used to and she liked the avocado better than the fish/potatoes but she ate it! YAY! She also liked grabbing the spoon from me and would pretend to feed me which was super cute.
I forgot to give her her sippy cup, I know I fail as a mom. Somehow this will come back and bite me in the ass. (Harvard is out!) ;)
Our day was a little bit out of routine today because Jason and I had to do a bit of shopping and not wanting to parade Lulu around town we took her over to her Nana and Big Poppa D's for the afternoon. A little alone time with my husband was wonderful, we had lunch at a new restaurant, I had a horrible caesar salad and vow to never return to this restaurant again but regardless of all this, the time with Jason was so much fun. We were on that great same level of happiness and humor making each other laugh the whole afternoon.
Side note: After lunch we walked down to the Last Day Saloon and purchased tickets to see Bob Schneider on the 17th. I'm so excited he's playing there, it's such a small venue and he's one of the coolest artists I've seen live.
Then we were off to find a carpet/rug situation for our downstairs tile problem. Problem solved! At a large carpet store we were able to get a large enough rug that was relatively cheap, considering the fact that this is a temporary situation we didn't want to spend a lot. We love what we got and now have a nice cozy area downstairs for the bear to play on.
Target... target.. target... I love love target but not in the month of December. It was jammed packed with people that should just stay home. Seriously don't go out if you don't know how to drive, park, shop, etc. Stay home. We were only really going for personal stuff (clothes) for me and so this wasn't particularly Jason's idea of fun but I was quick and got Lu another
Christmas present (spoiled baby!!).
We were then off to N & D's house to get the bear, they all had lots of fun as always! But she missed out on her afternoon nap, only a 30 minute nap in the car ride home, so we had a cranky bear for the rest of our evening. She just went down for the night about 20 minutes ago and it's Daddy's night to feed her if she wakes so I'm okay with her early bedtime. ;)
