Busy Weekend!!

Sunday, March 21, 2010

What a weekend! The weather was going to be absolutely beautiful all weekend here so I decided to take the day off on Friday to spend it with my baby! The original plan was to head to the zoo with Emma's Mimi but it had just opened and there was still some damage from all the snow this winter. So instead, we decided to just relax and head to the park! Our plans were somewhat changed because our washing machine broke earlier that week so Emma and I headed to Mimi's house after a nice relaxing morning to start some laundry (and then head to the park). We just relaxed at Mimi's house for a little while and Emma got to play a bit before heading out.

There are a couple of toys that are infamous at Mimi's house, and two of them are pictured below. From the birth of the first grandchild 10 years ago, these apples and car toys have been the absolute favorites. Emma agreed....

By the time we got to Mimi's house and got a load of laundry rolling it was lunch time so we decided to head to Panera Bread before the park. We found out that Emma LOVES Panera Bread and ate Mimi's entire piece of bread that came with her meal! She was so funny in her highchair just looking around and trying to talk to everyone that walked by haha! Then it was off to the park! We didn't stay long because it was pretty sunny and Emma was getting pretty tired so we just walked around and tried out swinging for the first time. Tiny wasn't a fan of being in the swing by herself but loved it when either me or Mimi swung with her. After that, we *attempted* to put Emma down for a nap at Mimi's house and she wasn't having it one bit! We then heading back to our house where Mimi and Pop had some dinner and Pop figured out why our washing machine wasn't working. Luckily, it was an easy fix at a total cost of about $11.98 (SHEW!).

Saturday morning was Emma's next-to-last swim class and her boyfriend Mr. Zach was on vacation, so Ms. Erin was her teacher this week (and will be next week too). Although Emma is totally in love with Mr. Zach, she was super excited to meet someone new and decided to show off all class. She was splashing and kicking and jumping around like never before!! She even dunked her face in the water several times on purpose! She is definitely ending up to be out little water bug! After swim class, a quick nap and some lunch, we headed out with Daddy to go find a new TV stand since the little one is getting more and more mobile by the day. She still can't crawl forwards but between rolling and moving backwards, you would be surprised how much ground she can cover!!

Sunday was going to be another beautiful day so we headed out with Mimi and Nanny (my grandmother and where Emma got her middle name from) to do some shopping at the outlets! Needless to say, Emma had the most luck out of everyone, and I scored a new pair of jeans.

We also had a big weekend with some new foods! We tried some scrambled eggs (yolks only which we aren't too much a fan of), pancakes (which we absolutely love), and some meat in a jar (sounds delish huh?). So Emma is getting a bigger and bigger food selection everyday! Here is what we have mastered so far (I put a * by some of her favorites).

  • Bananas*
  • Blueberries
  • Peach Cobbler

  • Chicken Dinners (Like chicken and apples, etc)
  • Ice Cream (so far, not a big fan)
Things next up on the list include:

I very well may be forgetting some, but those are at least the staples!!
