We arrived Friday afternoon and headed for lunch at a newer burger place called FlipSide. We then went and saw Man of Steel (Nick's pick obviously). Anytime we spend the night down there we have a tradition of going to The Cheesecake Factory as late as we can, we sit at a candlelit table outside, and spend hours chatting over dessert and coffee. We have had some of our best conversations there.
I was so excited for Saturday because I knew Saturday meant I finally got to go to Jeni's! They had just build a Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream where we stay. This is my all time favorite ice cream. They have traveling carts that show up around Columbus and I fell in love with their ice cream a few years back when my Mom and I were at a festival down there. But, I hadn't ever been to one of their store fronts. The day before I delivered Nora four pints of Jeni's ice cream (and a newborn Jeni's onesie) were delivered to my front door in dry ice (making Nick the best hubby ever)! Anyways, so we finally got to go and it was amazing- literally I have never had anything so yummy in my entire life. The down side- now I can't stop thinking about it and I can't wait to get to another Jeni's ASAP. Our anniversary weekend was really wonderful though- and our actual anniversary fell on Father's Day- so Nick felt really loved that day!
Later that week Nora turned 8 months old, which is still so hard to believe. She is spending lots of time on her tummy now. She pushes herself up on her arms so well- like she is always doing pushups, it's so cute. She still hasn't figured out getting her legs under her, but I know we are so close to crawling. She is eating like a champ- we've been through peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, pears, apples, and tons of rice cereal. Next week we start on bananas. Every new thing we give her she eats right up, I think we are pretty lucky there. And she is sleeping just as well. She goes down around 8 or so and wakes up when she hears Nick getting ready for work around 7 or 7:30. I can usually get 2 good naps out of her every day, which is nice. She is just so enjoyable. She has her moods, but for the most part she is a very pleasant baby. And I am still loving every single moment with her and wouldn't trade our time together for anything in the whole world.
