We decided to go on some rides and that made her happy again. I am just going to say, it will be a while longer before we attempt the Princess meeting again!

The last two days, Josh has had to go to Los Angeles for training. Today, Charlotte and I tagged along since he was getting off at 3:00. We dropped him off at KPMG and headed to The Grove, an outdoor shopping mall. I got there around 8:45 am and it didn't open until 10:00. Fortunately, there is a Farmers Market attached to it that was open. It has a ton of food places inside, so Charlotte and I got waffles, eggs and bacon for breakfast! Yum!!
After we walked around the vendors and a couple shops outside the mall, it was time to move the car in the parking structure and go have a blast!
I decided to take my time, since I had until 3:00. I just moseyed around, going in all the shops. I kept everything under control until the American Girl store!! It has always been my dream for my daughter(s) to play with my AG dolls (I have a Bitty Baby and Molly). When the stores finally started popping up I thought it would be the best if I could TAKE my girls to the store one day! Well, today was the day! Upon walking in,
it automatically became the best day! I would have to say it possibly passed the Disneyland excitement for the hour I was in there:) I had been planning on taking Molly with us to LA to get her all fixed up, and, of course, forgot her at home. I got Charlotte out of the stroller for a while and she loved looking at all the dolls. I told my mom and Josh that this was the best day ever!! You'll have to stay tune to her first birthday blog post to see what is in the large red bag!!!
Next we met up with Nicole at Cheesecake Factory for lunch! It was great to catch up!
Shortly after a little more walking around, I went back to pick up Josh. We drove up to Colorado Blvd and ate dinner at this nice bistro. Then did more walking and shopping :)
I am constantly thanking Josh for providing a great life for me and Charlotte. I love the time I am able to spend with my baby girl. She is my BFF and we do everything together! It's so fun!! It was such a fun day...now for the weekend!!!

No it's not a band name but its what happened today! You're not supposed to give babies peanut butter until one year old; we all know this. My theory, kids are having allergic reactions because they aren't being exposed to foods early enough. My plan was to take PB to her year check-up, so if something did happen, the doctor would be right there. Well, today we went up to Balboa Island and while I was eating my PB sandwich (yes, not PB&J), I decided to give Charlotte some because I wasn't alone. Melissa would save us!! I started on her hand...nothing! Side of the outside of her mouth...nothing! Then I just gave her some...SUCCESS! This is momentous if you ask me! I'm so grateful she has had no allergic reactions to ANYTHING so far!
