We started the day with a visit to Eliza's PNP to rule out an ear infection. Thankfully, she does not have an ear infection. But, I figured every new mom needs to go in at least once with her perfectly-happy-but-just-a-bit-snotty-and-oh wait-did-she-just-pull-at-her-ear? baby to see if said happy, albeit ear-pulling baby has an ear infection. Because, you know, kids get these things. I've heard.
Later, we went downtown to have lunch with Eliza's aunt Kelly and her Grandma. We ate at a fun - and DELICIOUS - shi shi Mexican restaurant and it was so nice outside that we decided to eat on the patio. It was lovely, and the food was fabulous. Then we went for iced decaf nonfat caramel macchiatos at S*bux where I nursed Eliza before putting her in the dreaded car seat (her relationship with the car seat has been dicey lately).
After her nap, we ran a few errands. We went to the pet store to get cat food, where I introduced Eliza to the fishies! Pets.Mart has a huge wall of fish tanks and since she was in the Ergo, she had a great, up-close view of the fish, and she was absolutely enthralled. She stared and stared... it was so cute. Perhaps there is a fish tank in our future? Then we headed to the grocery store and to pick up dinner, she is such a trooper when we run errands, she just hangs out with mama (well, on mama :) and looks around. Though it takes us a while because we can hardly make it through a store without multiple people commenting on how adorable/sweet/cute/precious/smiley/happy she is. She definitely turns heads, that girl. I'm one proud Mama.
And then it was home for dinner and bedtime. Tonight we sang The Beatles' "Obladi Oblada" (wow that spelling looks funny), which is one of our recent favs (thanks mom!), before bath time and then to sleep. It was a good day.
Oh, and then hubby and I did our nightly torture workout: Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.
(wow have I gotten boring or what?!)
