We had some firsts and fun this weekend.
Friday night we went out to eat, and Julianna did so good sitting in the chair with her floppy seat at the restaurant... and she ate a full serving of barley cereal and a full jar of garden veggies. Hungry little girl. In case you didn't know, the 'hand over the eye' means "I'm Tired".
On Saturday night, we had some good friends of ours over for dinner, whose son is 3 weeks younger than Julianna. His name is Jake. We call him Julianna's boyfriend. I made some Penne with Vodka sauce along with mozzarella & tomato salad... and then chocolate pudding pie for dessert. Yum. Little Jake is crawling like a king! He is sooo fast already! Go Jake! He is also can pull himself up to a standing position. We are hoping Jules is not too far behind. Jake & Julianna played nice (kind of) on the sofa together before dinner.
Julianna was nice enough to share her most prized possession (as of right now) with Jake, her Sassy picture book.
"Sassy Book - Mine... Mine... Mine"
Poor unsuspecting Jake got a hold of Jules' book ... Check out the look she's giving him. Wicked. Watch out for this one Jake! She might hold a grudge, LOL!
I think Jake might have needed a break from Julianna at this point. Off he went...
I am so impressed with how well he is crawling already and he's not even 8 months yet! Julianna, get a good look - this could be you...
Where ya' going little man? To inspect the dog's food bowl again!?
This weekend, Julianna learned that she can actually hold the bottle and not have mom or dad hold it for her diva self like we normally do. I was shocked she held it for as long as she did! Baby Steps.
Sunday - Julianna just waiting patiently for mommy & daddy to get their act together so we can go to Buy Buy Baby to get her Big Girl Stroller.
Julianna in her Big Girl Convertible Seat. We installed it on Saturday because we had enough of carrying her heaviness around in her infant seat. Out went the Chicco base.... In went the Britax convertible seat. This thing is so nice & cushy... Lucky Jules!
And off we went to Buy Buy Baby to get her Big Girl Stroller - I've been researching and having mind-bending dilemmas over which light-weight (umbrella style) stroller to get for her. We had Julianna sit in each stroller & we wheeled her around, reclined her, and tried out the belt. She was having fun! We finally decided on the Maclaren Quest Sport. I kind of was leaning towards the Maclaren anyway.
So long Chicco Cortina Heavy-weight Travel System!
(Here is a stock picture since ours is still in the box in the back of the car).
What umbrella style stroller does everyone else use? How do you like it?
