Shopping cart fun

Gianna is kicking butt and taking names when it comes to sitting.  She went from sitting for a few seconds to being able to sit on her own for a half hour or more.  I decided to try our first shopping excursion without the infant car seat last week.

So we went to Ikea. I was at first a nervous wreck about it.  I put her in the cart and walk super duper slooooow.  I was so scared that even though she was buckled in really tight that she would tip over.  Not my little girl.  She took to it right away and loved it.  I mean seriously loved it.

She was squealing with delight at every person that walked by.  She stared at all the lights and displays with a big smile on her face.  She talked to every one and everything that she saw.  It was just as much fun for me as it was for her.  For the first time it felt like I was shopping with a little buddy.  Gianna has become my shopping partner in crime.

    This sounds like serious trouble though lol! If DD was this well behaved every time we went shopping, well we'd go shopping a heck of a lot more!

  2. I love this! I haven't managed to get up the courage to put Marley in the shopping cart yet, I am a wimp. I'm going to send you this for your shopping trips: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3938714
