I did it!

So today I did the unthinkable. Something I've never attempted to do before...I went out and ran errands with BOTH kids. Yeah, I know, Bryce is already 9 months old and this is the first time I've taken them both out together by myself??? Well, up to this point, it's either been me and another adult (my mom or Jason) or it's just been a car ride by myself. And Bryce has usually been too easily irritated to even think about taking them both out together w/o the worry of complete melt-downs of both of them. (BTW, I used to take Caroline out by herself lots of times when she was really young.)

And where did we go on this monumental trip? To Great Clips to get Caroline's haircut and to Target. They were both so good and we accomplished so much before noon on a Saturday. At Great Clips, Caroline was such a big girl and sat in the chair by herself without me having to hold her head for the stylist. She was very much looking forward to the lollipop and totally deserved it when she was done. Bryce chilled out in the stroller and made goo goo eyes at all the ladies. Everyone thought both kids were adorable and I was so proud.

Then onto Target - I got both kids a new pair of shoes and a few odds and ends. Bryce sat in the front and Caroline sat in the big part of the cart. I thought I would have been able to use the ones w/ the toddler seat in the front, but those don't have leg holes in the front of the cart for a baby. (How strange...) Jason had gone out to help with the pool down at the beach club, so he was very surprised to come home and see we were gone.

I think Bryce has finally gotten to a more managable age and is much more content than he ever was. Go me!!!

At first I thought it was a typo when you wrote that Bryce was 9 months old! Has it been that long??? Those kids are both so darn cute.

P.S. Kudos for taking both kids out on errands. That takes serious guts. Well done!
