Per the usual I had the day off Thursday and the best part was that it was not a day of appointments, obligations or a to-do list. My daily planner had no writing in it for Thursday February 20th.
Those are the best Thursdays.
My girl and I slept in (10:15-what?!? The latest she's ever slept), waited for daddy to come visit us on his lunch break and then headed out for a little lunch and shopping date. I thought she was looking extra adorable with her new transition to spring outfit and another ponytail :)
It was a windy and warm day that did an excellent job of giving us spring fever. The afternoons of stroller rides and playing in the yard are close.
Our first stop was Qdoba to meet my sister and brother-in-law for lunch. They hadn't seen her ponytail in person or heard some of her new words so they were excited about all the newness. We just got a Qdoba close to us so I was glad to try it out for the first time. It was excellent as always.
Our next stop was some shopping at Duck Duck Goose. I have never shopped this consignment sale but other mommy friends were excited about it so I thought we would give it a try. It opened the day before so I could tell there wasn't as much merchandise but I found a few new pieces and added some hairbows to our collection.
I didn't take our stroller so after about five minutes GGH was ready to get down and roam. And that's exactly what she did. She was walking up and down the aisles and underneath the racks! When did she become old enough to do this?!
She is so big acting here lately. She said her first three word phrase this week:
"Dada go school"
Such a proud moment (especially for Marcus). And I also discovered she's cutting her top first molars. These milestones are coming so quickly.
And of course we had to stop at the grocery to shop for ingredients for supper. Georgia Grace doesn't get to go shopping much because I normally go after work but she really loves it. Riding in the cart is like a treat to her since it's such an infrequent thing. And she's always such a good girl and super observant.
And it looks like I have started a new tradition of taking her picture every time she grocery shops with me. October and November 2013 and February 2014. I plan on taking her picture here from now on since I mindlessly started doing this. I think it will be fun to look back at how much farther those little legs dangle!
Happy Weekend friends! I'm hoping this hint of spring weather sticks around.
