In the meantime, we are trying to find things to do indoors so we can stay warm but still have a fun family day.
This weekend Brian, Julianna & I went to a very large mall called the Palisades Mall - it has 4 levels with tons of shopping and an Imax theater, Ice Skating rink, an enormous number of restaurants, Dave & Busters, and even Valet Parking. This mall also has an indoor Ferris Wheel and Merry-Go-Round. I told Julianna we would take her back there to ride the Merry-Go-Round in a couple years when she was old enough. We had lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings... the food was at best OK. Julianna munched on her Gerber Puffs & drank some water from her sippy cup while we ate lunch. We walked every level, got a Starbucks latte, and did some window shopping ... it was a fun day and a great way to stay warm while it's cold outside!
We also tried out Julianna's new Duck bath - She liked it a lot! She was not scared of it at all.... Phewwwww !! I felt much safer by having her in there instead of sitting right in the big tub.
Today we watched Football (Yay Jets!!), played with Julianna for a long time on the floor and I made Sweet & Sour Chicken for dinner; a new recipe from the Food Network that I decided to try. Stir Fry chicken is usually not my strength but my husband had 2 helpings so it must have been ok :) ... and for dessert, we had Ghiardelli Caramel Turtle Brownies. Mmmmmmmm.
Julianna in her new Ducky Bath tub. She liked it a lot
because all of her toys were right there with her.
Nap time before we went to the mall
Sunday Morning fun-time with Daddy
(ignore my very messy desk behind them lol!)
Jules eating her Gerber Puffs while we
ate our lunch at the mall.
"Get me out of heeeere!
I don't like being on my belly in my crib!!"
(Julianna cries when she rolls on her belly in her crib sometimes, and Brian felt
he had to get this shot of her before he picked her up LOL!)
Getting ready to go out on the town ... Touching noses!!
