Carousel Play Date

Yesterday Hallie and I met up for a play date with my friend Parisa and her adorable little girl Darya!

 Before we left Daddy snapped a few pictures of his girls!

First we met up at the carousel in the mall so that the girls could have a ride.  Darya was so cute! She had her BIG brown eyes set on the pony she wanted to ride on as soon as she arrived! 
I am still undecided on how Hallie felt about riding the carousel.  At times she seemed happy and was smiling, then other times her eyes bugged out scared as if to say "Mom, what crazy contraption have you got me on!" 

After our fun ride, we went to the Barnes and Noble cafe and had coffee and lunch. (So actually funny story, that's where Parisa and I met.  We both worked their in college.  Even funnier story....our husbands went to Elementary school together!) So anyway, while we chatted over coffee, Darya happily colored and Hallie took a little nap.  It is so nice to have friends with kiddos! Parisa is also putting together a book club that I cannot wait to join! a) I love reading and b) As much as I hate being away from my baby, it will be nice to get some Mommy time every now and then! So thank you Parisa for giving me the opportunity to get out every now and then! I am thrilled to be joining! 
This is the best pic we could get of both kids

 That face...really!?
So in other randomness...because that is how this post has felt....
This little one taught herself how to go to bed on her own yesterday! We put her in her crib awake around 8pm after a bath,and by 8:15, she was out! She didn't even wake up until 6am!
I feel half...no 98% blessed and 2% scared that she is going to stop being the angel she is at any minute and get tough...oh terrible twos..I am sure will hit us hard!
But for now I will enjoy the good sleeper we have and live it up by giving myself Jamicures, drinking wine and enjoying the Parenthood premiere tonight! 
How was your Tuesday?
