Running Errands

Ian was in the mood to go to our favorite breakfast restaurant this morning. So we all got ready for the day and out the door by 10am. Liam was very well behaved in his high chair as he made jokes and ate his baby cheddar fish as we waited for our food to come. I guess we don't take him in public much because this is the first time I have really noticed folks paying attention to my baby. They must have been impressed with his table manners and cute grins he was emitting.


Our next stop was to PetSmart. Ian loves to show Liam all the fish, birds and kitties. We even ran into Santa while we were there. Liam was giving him smiles so I asked Santa to hold him so I could get a photo... I guess Santa was smile-worthy only from a distance. We should have brought the Bengals with us to get a photo with Santa! Not that they wouldn't be any less freaked out.
We then headed to Target to get a perscription filled and find Liam some warmer shoes. We have been looking for a toddler lounge chair for Liam (for Christmas) because he really likes to sit on things his height (such as my purse, his diaper bag, or my leg if I am sitting on the floor). Toddler chairs that are made for toddlers run from 30-100 bucks. We found an adult floor chair for only $19.99 at Target. So we are feeling pretty cool because it's gray micro-suede and won't look tacky in our living room.

As we were leaving Target, Liam wanted to push the cart. He was awarded with many "awes" and smiles as we were leaving the store... he pushed the cart all the way to the car.

We went to the car wash on our way home as Liam had already fallen asleep 2 minutes after he was put in his car seat. That was around 12:20 and it is now 3:20... I guess we wore him out because he is STILL sleeping...

Thats how I feel at the end of all the Sat. errands, a good nap!!!! Cute pictures of Liam... He looks so grown up walking down the isles and pushing the shopping cart. Loved the picture of him showing off his little pop belly....

Whenever I visit your blog, I'm always in awe of what an adorable child he is!

I love how precious he is when he's sleeping. If you're anything like me it took all the power within you to not risk waking him up just so you can hold him and snuggle him!

Such a cute dude!

He looks pooped after all those errands!
I like how he doesn't like Santa much! I wouldn't want to sit on some strange guys lap either!

What a stinkin doll! He is so handsome and doing such grown up things. It is so fun to imagine what Charlie will be doing shortly.

Smart move with the Target purchase. I find that a lot of adult items (not *adult adult*) work just as well for kids. We also tried Santa and Nathan wasn't too impressed with him, either.

Oh my god, you actually go into his room while he's sleeping and take a picture? You are totally nuts... I would never take the risk!

But I guess it was worth the pic... honestly adorable.

(not *adult adult* LOL!!)

Dang this Google Blogger!! Anyway, it looks like you had a busy day. It's nice to see how our kids enjoy all the simple pleasures in life...such as running errands. Glad you found a chair for Liam, ecspecially one that he can grow in to.
