The first night we hit a Chicago style pizza place. It was yummy! I cannot believe how cold it was these few days there. Here's Mekonen all bundled up in his carseat. Doesn't he look thrilled? Mekonen hammin' it up at the restaurant. We gave him a lemon because we wanted to see a funny reaction. But none. Nothing. He ate the entire thing!! A waiter who was watching us the whole time we were there said he didn't know what was more entertaining, the baby, or the three of us. Then he joined the fun and brought us a lime. We totally got the face we were looking for with that one. Poor Mekonen!
The next day we got on the El train and went downtown for the day. It was FREEEEEEZING!!! Mekonen looked like a glow-worm!
Jenny looking like a movie star out with her babe. I was so hoping to catch a glimpse of Oprah. Jess and I want to stalk to her.
Me, Mekonen, and Jenny at "The Bean," some tourist thing downtown. It was so cold that we walked up, took a picture, and walked the few blocks back to Macy's to find Jess. (Mekonen looks completely uninterested.Haha). BBrrrr....
After a long day downtown in the cold, Mekonen was exhausted. Auntie Jess was sympathizing with him.
I can't believe I have a baby. I can't believe Jess and I are "all grown up." She's always there for me. Every big life event, there she is, standing by my side. I am so proud of her and I love her to pieces. Thanks Jess!
