I did it!

This may not sound like a big deal to many, but today I conquered the mall with two kids and a double stroller and I did it all alone! This morning was challenging to say the least, so when Amelia woke up from her morning nap, or shall I call it sleep interrupted by waking every 20 minutes, I decided we had to get out of the house.

Graham was in need of a haircut so we headed to the mall. The most challenging part of our excursion was getting both kids out of the house and safely into their car seats. Amelia clearly has to be carried, and Graham insisted he be carried, so I must have looked like quite the sight as I carried two squirmy kids and a diaper bag into the driveway to load them up. The kids did amazingly well at the mall. In fact, it was the most restful part of the entire day! Graham somehow made his sucker from his haircut last over an hour so he didn't make a noise while I wandered around and Amelia appears to actually enjoy shopping so I wasn't too worried about how she would do. Now that I've taken on and conquered the mall outnumbered by toddlers, perhaps the zoo is next!

Amelia thought the cheese on her tray was hysterical...she really couldn't stop laughing for some reason

Great work Melissa- I'm impressed. I'm afraid to bring one baby to the grocery store!

Amelia is so adorable and I can tell she already feels so loved and so comfortable in your family. She is absolutely beautiful and Graham looks so proud to be her big brother. Congratulations!
