Cecilia – I mean, seriously, this kid is my favorite everyday – even though we’re currently in a challenging toddler phase. She’s the most amazing little girl I’ve ever met and I’m so thankful I get to spend each day with her. Some Cecilia favorites this month are watching her play with Gil Fred, my childhood Cabbage Patch Kid. She absolutely adores Gil Fred and loves carrying him around. She is (mostly) super sweet to him and she loves hugging and cuddling him. Another Cecilia favorite from July is that we’ve started cooking and baking together now that we have a learning tower for her. We’ve made dinner together, baked and she just loves being able to see what Travis and I are doing in the kitchen. She’s the best sous chef I could ask for!
Date nights with Travis – More date nights was one of my goals for 2016 and as I mentioned in my last goals check-in, we’ve been MUCH better about carving out time for ourselves. We’ve been on a few date nights this month and, since we don’t have family in town, we’re so thankful for the amazing babysitters we have to take care of our girl while we’re gone.
Eating dinner on our new patio – Our new patio furniture arrived this month and we have loved eating dinner al fresco! I’m so thankful that we live in a city where we can eat outside all year because Cecilia loves being out there, too. Not only have we eaten dinner outside, but we’ve enjoyed our morning coffee and breakfast outside while watching Cecilia play with her water table and bubbles. Great memories are being made!
Trips to Waterfront Park – Here in San Diego we have a splash pad right on the water near our City Hall. We’ve been quite a few times this summer and it’s one of our favorite places to go as a family. Travis loves splashing around with Cecilia while I watch or read a book. He said the park makes him feel like a kid again and he loves playing in the water with our girl.
Gilmore Girls reboot – This monthly post wouldn’t be complete without mentioned the HUGE Gilmore news that was released this week. New episodes will be available on Netflix on Black Friday! And did you see the trailer? I’m so nerdy for GG that I got chills when I heard Carole King singing theme song near the end. So excited!
