I made my first trip to Goodwill the other day. Thrift stores scare me because I hate shopping, so sorting through racks and racks of clothes to maybe find a couple of items is one of my worst nightmares. But then I had a baby who grows like a weed and it much too tall for all the seasonal clothes I have for her, and the clothes I do have that might fit are all little rompers for summer....so off we went.
It wasn't that bad...it helped that Little Miss took her really, really long 2 hour nap for the day while we were on this trip. I got 6 pairs of pants for her, which was really why we went. Today she wore the overalls, which are so cute, and also make her look like a toddler. When I bought them I figured they were going to be too big looking at them....but they just barely fit! I cannot believe how tall this child is, it is ridiculous! I think the other pants I got for her are longer, but we'll see. I'm very glad I spent less than $1 a pair at Goodwill rather than going to Target and spending $30 for all of them.
We have started big girl food! The last week Little Miss has been very, very interested when mommy and daddy are eating. She get's what Matt and I call her "NoodleBug" Face. Don't ask why we call it that we just do. She's made this face since she was born, and she usually makes it when there is something new or interesting that she is very curious about. We've been getting the NoodleBug face while eating. We set up her highchair a few days ago and she sat at us with some toys at dinner but rather than play she was intrigued by us eating the whole time, so I decided it was time. I went and got her some rice cereal today and a couple of avacadoes. Here's some shots from the adventure.
Well, not too surprising she was waay more interested in watching us eat rather than eating herself.
She is starting to get a little bit better with it. We are mostly settled in the new house, have been super busy transitioning lately, hence the non-blog. But we can't wait for the spring weather to get here!
And here is what daddy is greeted with everynight when he gets home:
