was another cold and gloomy day. Despite the weather, I wanted to
take Wing to check out Irvine Spectrum. We met with Emily for lunch
at the food court....thinking that it would be quicker than a sit-down
place. Boy, were we wrong! After standing in line, ordering,
and picking up food, Emily only had 10 minutes to eat before heading
back to work.
Wing stopped off at a cellphone accessories kiosk, I got Ashlyn's
ears pierced! Aric and I weren't planning on piercing her ears until
she was much older, but the girl at the jewelery kiosk was really
pushing for a sale....saying that this age is the perfect time for
piercing (because they won't remember the pain, etc...etc..). I thought
about it and decided to go for it. When Wing caught up with us, he
was really hesitant about the whole thing:
I was really picky about exactly where she was going to pierce. I didn't want it too high or too low....I wanted it to be perfectly in the center of Ashlyn's earlobes. I made the girl re-mark the spot several times before I grabbed the marker and did it myself. Wing had to hold Ashlyn in his lap while I kept Ashlyn's head still. After we pierced the right ear, she started crying. She struggled a bit with the left ear but when it was all over, she was all good. She looks really cute with pierced ears. Hopefully she'll no longer be mistaken for a boy. =P
our way home, I dropped off some things for Grace. It was nice to
see her, Lauren, and Baby Taylor. I missed them. Baby Taylor is getting
big...she's growing out of that newborn phase of just eating and sleeping.
She was so playful and alert...smiling, cooing, and gurgling. She's
Wing, Emily, Aric, and I cooked dinner. We had grilled porkchops,
salt/pepper chicken wings, mabo tofu, zuccini and squash, and beef
ball soup with dumplings. It was yummy!
Can't believe it's already Thursday! Wow, this week went by fast. I'm enjoying having Wing here...he makes my days fun. =D
