You'll have to wait until after Easter to see my little guy wearing it though since its a present! As for Lolo, it turns out he already has a mommy knit sweater in waiting perfect for Easter which means I have two crafting days left until Sunday to make to make a felted Easter basket (inspired by this one) and some felted toss bunnies (inspired by these) for Julian and a stuffed goose (like this one) for my little Lemondrop.
And now for the story behind the post title: we got out this week! Yay! While Julian went on a play date with grandma and grandpa on Tuesday, Dada, Lolo and I went to the movies! Movies for Mommies that is ;0) It was my first time and i was pleasantly surprised. There must have been 30 babies there and most were fast asleep throughout the whole thing (incluing Lolo) and the rest were really well behaved. By the way, if you ever wondered what the indoor parking at the movie theatre is like at 10 am on a Tuesday morning, wonder no more. That's our car. All alone. It was quite surreal actually.
And then yesterday was a big day for Julian too: dada took for his very first haircut! Truth is he's been needing it for a while now, but we just hadn't gotten around to making an appointment at the tot salon. But we did yesterday. Now I didn't witness the momentous occasion first hand, but dada documented it for me.
The place was great with superfly chairs for little ones, TV sets with cartoons, colourful capes, and great-with-kids staff. Julian even came home with a 'special paper' which he was very proud to show me. It is a first haircut certificate complete with a little lock of his baby curls attached to the corner. It was a really nice surprise that I'll be really happy to show his future dates one day, heehee!
