As Cali gets older it is great to be able to do things that we used to do BC (before Cali).
This weekend was a good example. Friday night all 3 of us went out to dinner at Olive Garden. Cali sat in the high chair, ate her food, and played with her toys. After dinner we walked around Barnes and Nobles and Target! She did great and even got some new toys. (It is dangerous to take Nick into the kid toy section!)
Saturday morning we all went out for breakfast at one of our favorite breakfast "greasy spoon" restaurants. We ate here a LOT when I was pregnant. It was nice to be back. Then we spent the day helping Nick get ready for Sunday.
These may seem like little things, but it is nice to not feel tied to the house because you don't know what the baby will do or how long you have before she needs to eat/sleep/poop/scream.
