Guess who had their first taste of solid food this Saturday morning! We had the camera poised and ready to go. Please do focus only on the babe and not on her robe-clad, unshowered mama. But that's just how we roll on the weekends. :)
She took a 1:3 ratio mixture of Earth's Best oatmeal cereal to milk. Loved it! Soon we'll try our hand at purees. I have my baby food maker ready to roll.
Later that afternoon, she attended a friend's first birthday party. Oh my goodness, there was a baby ball pit, and she was in LOVE with it. Hellllooooo, Santa gift! I've already added the inflatable pool and the 100-pack of balls to my Amazon list of Christmas gifts to buy. We aren't buying her a lot of gifts this year, but at $37 for this combo is a pretty good price, and especially since we can get double-duty and use the inflatable pool in the summer.
She ended up starting her afternoon nap earlier than we expected, so we got her home as quickly as we could to try to keep that nap going.
Later that afternoon, I scooted out for a quick bit to check out the Vintage Charlotte pop-up market at The Fillmore. Ian stayed with Camille, and it was nice to walk around the market for an hour without having to push a bulky stroller around. We hung out with friends that night until it was time to get home and feed the baby and heat up some leftover pizza. Crazy Saturday night :)
Sunday consisted of a lot of laundry! After some quick trips to Homegoods and Michaels, I stayed home with the babe while Ian went to the Panthers game with a buddy. Camille took short naps and I used some of that time to work on her baby album and fold clothes.
The most exciting load of laundry that I did (never let me say that phrase again) was our new flannel sheets. Per Elise's recommendation, I bought us some flannel sheets and could not resist the scottie dog pattern. And you can't beat $24.99 for king-sized sheets. Plus, FREE shipping now! They are now on our bed and our first time sleeping on them will be tonight. I can't wait to call it a night and snuggle up in bed with a book.
That's about all that's going on here. I am excited to share my Christmas wishlist tomorrow and hope you'll link up with us for the My Favorite Things linkup ... if you missed the details, catch 'em here.
