Our Christmas tradition is a movie and Chinese food but being in San Diego and having a little one in tow, this year was a bit different.
We took a walk through the neighborhood to stretch our legs and get some fresh air.
Then we headed to an Asian inspired restaurant where Henry ate kung pao chicken and drunken noodles. San Diego doesn’t have many options when it comes to Chinese food, but we found a good spot.
Hen is going through a growth spurt and eating so MUCH and so OFTEN! His palate is sophisticated and continues to impress us with the range of food he will eat (and try)!
We packed up the car and hit the road for a family trip to San Diego. We made many stops along the way to stretch our legs and get snacks as you have been VERY hungry lately.
We made a stop at the Casa de Fruta in Hollister where you enjoyed dragging around the shopping basket and picking out snacks.
Before we hopped back in the car, we took a look at the peahens (the female peacock) that freely roamed the area. You were intrigued and looked on curiously.
Worried about keeping your nap routine, you proved me wrong and fell asleep right on time. With rain, traffic, and pit stops, the 8 hour drive took us almost 12, but you were a champ.
Another day without your routine of school meant all day with momma. I did my best to keep your day full of activities so that you stay engaged.
It was another cold day in SF so we headed to the library where you built structures with magna tiles.
Once it warmed up, we hit the park where you went down the slide (alone), swung on the swings, and shared your little car toys with the other kids at the park.
You’re such a doll and a dream child.
Your hair cracks me up! We hear people comment, “great hair!” many times a day! Sometimes it gets bigger than you are!!
Big hair, don’t care!
For dinner, we had a date at the neighborhood taqueria where you are your own bean and cheese burrito. I was impressed with your appetite and burrito eating skills!
With school being out for the end of the year, you and I get a lot of one on one time!
Last week, we played in the city. We saw the Christmas Tree in Union Square (again), visited the Fortune Cookie Factory in Chinatown and had lunch with your daddy.
The restaurant didn’t have high chairs so we improvised! …a case of Coke it is!
We viewed the tree from Macy’s where we had a (warm) view overlooking the square.
We then made a quick trip to the dog park where you hammed it up and said, “baby doggy” a million times.
That night, we headed to an old friend’s house to catch up and eat macaroons. You made yourself right at home!
A lot of awesome updates are coming through the app from the teacher today!
Henry is thriving at Montessori school! THRIVING!!
I am one proud mama.
I worked an event last weekend for my event planning company, and you stayed home with Dad. The two of you watched Finding Dory and sent me this update photo.
I mean…could you be any cuter? Your tiny little arms! Your wild post-nap hair! Your sweet face! Xoxo
It doesn’t get much cuter than this! You and I had an impromptu photo shoot the other day when you were sportin’ your fleece track suit.
You are so adorable and so MUCH fun.
