Berry Good Fine Motor Skills!
Well, there should be a Lonely Planet Las Vegas book For Babies and Sassy could write it! The Sprout had a fantastic time visiting his 4 th state in 8 months. Here are a few highlights baby style...
(the Sprout flys very well, a fellow flyer commented upon arriving in Saskatoon customs at 11:30 pm ..."there was a baby on our plane?!" Yup, he's that good
( our room was amazing, 2 bathrooms, his and hers closets, a table that seated 14, huge bar area, lime green chaise lounge, 18 foot ceilings, 16 foot windows, pillars, extra deep tub...)
Eating only avocados, bananas, ribs and strawberries because I refused to eat baby food out of a jar the whole trip.
The Green Valley Ranch was just off of the strip and was the perfect hotel for us. We shopped at Anthropologie which was right out our front doors in The District, a great outdoor shopping area and perfect to walk and snack and lunch with a stroller. We also hit Primm so Sassy could treat herself to a Juicy purse, 2 pairs of new sketcher sandals and some CO Bigelow lip shine. The Sprout is all set for summer now, he just loves Carter's, a store we don't have in Canada. Sassy picked up a pile of new sleepers (this 8 month old fits nicely into the 18th month old size right now!) and a couple of pairs of swim trunks, shorts and pants for summer time. On the way to the airport that wonderful McDreamy found Sassy a NEW mall which has a good stock of the lemon lip creame from CO Bigelow. Thanks for the 411 on that one Saucy.......I picked up an extra for you so you don't have to steal The Fan's! I really didn't want to leave Vegas this trip, McDreamy was a little worried I wouldn't get on the plane. That smart guy knew just how to get a smile on my face as we flew over snowy Saskatchewan, 3 sweet words..........Phoenix in March!
Sophie now has a new necklace.
Have you tried this stuff?
It is SERIOUS magic in a bottle for the lips. I really wish I would have had this back when I was dating. It not only feels great, gives good coverage but smells and tastes like fresh gum...perfect for those close up conversations. Even us married gals should have fresh breath to keep our hubbies coming back for more sweet kisses!
