Weekend Outing

Yay!  A full day with daddy!  We planned to go to Westboro for a walk through the neighbourhood.  Because we knew that Olivia might be anxious about the stroller, we gave her a "calming" bath before in the afternoon and a nap. could we go wrong today?  She would be totally relaxed.  I don't know if it was the bath, or the nap, or the "bribes", but we did have an enjoyable afternoon.

We stopped at FabBaby Gear and bought some stroller accessories (what a racket!) so her ride would be most enjoyable.  Then we stopped at the Bagel Shop and got those bagel teethers.  I have to say... she loved them! So much so that her face was so slobbery because she was constantly gnawing at it!  HAHAHAHA  She ended up spending most of her time in the stroller, and even falling asleep in it for about 45 minutes. Mom and dad were able to have a snack and coffee while she slept. Woohoo!
Whe she woke up she was unsure about her surroundings and tried to give her a snack she wouldn't take it.  We didn't want to push our luck, so we decided to head home. She started off okay in the car, but then half way home, she could not be consoled.  She stopped crying the minute we walked into the door. She breathed a sigh of relief and screamed with delight as she saw her familar carpet full of toys.  I guess she's beginning to understand that this is her home now, and she is safe here.  Huge step.
