This weekend the weather was great and we need to start getting things in order for the girl's party. I needed Terry's help making some decisions at the store. I also think Terry was starting to get a little claustrophobic in the walls of our house. We made the decision that we were going to take the girls shopping with us.
Once again, my anxiety was all for nothing. Why can't I just relax already? Addison definitely has my shop 'til you drop gene and Alexis has my love for people watching. Addison sat beautifully and kicked her little legs as they dangled from the cart. She had a blast and as long as I fed her an occasional Gerber Puff she was happy as a clam. Alexis was very into just looking at everything. I could see it in her eyes that she was just taking it all in. She seemed very curious as she glanced around at everything. Both girls did an amazing job.
I know that you all think that I'm nuts, but a trip to Wal-Mart with the kiddos was a big step for us. As the girls get older, I'm starting to feel more comfortable venturing out and doing new things with them. Yes, I will continue to Lysol wipe down the entire shopping cart before I put them in it, or the swing at the park, but I'm looking forward to more and more adventures with my big girls ( I can't exactly call them babies anymore).
