Today we celebrated Grandma Nena's birthday with a BIG family dinner out at the spaghetti factory downtown. I tried to tell Callie in advance she needed to take a good afternoon nap early as she wouldn't get another. Apparently this was lost in translation to baby speak because Callie only napped 30 min in the afternoon! We tried to leave extra early for dinner and drive around so she might nap in the car but that failed too because it was raining and she was distracted looking at the rain out the window and hearing it on he roof and windows of the car. So we ended up driving around 40 min for a 15 min trip to the restaurant and no sleep! She tried her very best to cooperate and be good for grandma. She was proud of herself walking around with me holding her hands and even made friends with a 1 yr old baby boy! We left earlier than everyone else since she was getting cranky and close to bed time. We had a good time though and grandma was glad to have her there. Happy Birthday Grandma!!
Before dinner in the afternoon, Callie went on a shopping spree at kohls. We went looking for some new cotton only clothes since she had her bad eczema outbreak and we are avoiding all synthetic fabrics. It was her (or my) lucky day as they had a HUGE clearance sale. Everything was 75% off then another 25% off and I had a 20% off coupon for using my kohls card! We bought lots of great stuff in 12-18 month sizes. I even got a few 2T that didn't look too big. All in all she got 5 pants, 5 long sleeve shirts, 1 long sleeve onsie, 5 sweatshirts, and 2 pairs of pajamas for less than $50! Now that's a deal. So good in fact I'm considering checking out the other kohls tomorrow and looking at getting bigger sizes for when she outgrows these clothes. :)
