This is the last time we took Ingrid to the Mall of America...

Last week we took her back to enjoy some time with my sister and her boyfriend.  It was a blast!  Ingrid did a great job walking in the crowds, she held on to our hand the whole time, and when she got tired she contently sat in her stroller (a rarity).  

A few pictures...

2 1/2

On Thursday Ingrid turned 2 1/2!  I love half birthday's & have plans to always celebrate them.  Not necessarily with presents and parties, but with small things.  Making my kids favorite meal, taking them out for ice cream, etc...just another opportunity to let them know they are so special and worth celebration & recognition.  For Ingrid's "half birthday" we took her to her favorite restaurant to eat and then out for ice cream (her favorite thing on planet earth).  It was a fun day!  Half birthday's also mark the beginning of my brainstorming about the upcoming birthday!  I'm thinking ice cream themed this year....

Daddy & Daughter

I love watching these two play.

I'm not sure what got into Ingrid, but as soon as I showed her that she got a new quilt for her bed she simply had to lay down, pillow & new blanket in tow, and pretend to go to sleep.  She laid in her bed for an hour (Ingrid never does anything for an hour), and every time I would come check on her she would say "Okay, bye mommy-good night".  When it was finally time to take her out she cried.  It was weird.  But also pretty damn cute.

Also from today, batman capes (her favorite new character) and table learning time.
