On Sunday we went out for a family lunch at Applebee’s. Allie hadn’t napped yet despite being in the crib for one hour. And she was a little cranky before we left, so we were afraid this lunch would be a complete disaster. But it was so much fun! She was so cute talking to people around us and “reading” the menus. She tried chicken fingers for the first time and loved them, though we did take most of them home and finished them for dinner.
We wanted to go to the play place at the mall after, but Allie’s lack of a nap caught up with her. We took her home where she took a two-hour nap and Mama and Dada got a nice afternoon break. Maybe we’ll go to the mall next weekend.
Allie is definitely getting to the age where she has a lot of energy and gets bored when we stay home all weekend. I’m eagerly awaiting spring when it will be much easier to get out of the house!
