We go out to eat a LOT, but we haven’t been going as much lately because of Cora’s weird schedule. Her naps are all messed up because she’s teething. On top of that, we’ve had some weekend plans that also get in the way of going out to eat. So, we jumped on the chance to go today because we could go early. We left the house around 4:30 and went to Longhorn! Cora was soooo good! She’s almost always great at restaurants, but she was especially good today knowing how bad she’s been feeling with her teeth.

As usual, she made strangers laugh with her goofy smiles and waves. Also, she ate like a champ. I took her two favorite foods, which are currently black olives and black beans, and she also ate at least a couple of bites of sweet potato, squash, zucchini, bread, tomato, broccoli, and even my firecracker chicken wraps. She was dying to grab one and eat it, but I didn’t want her to. I finally held it for her so I could control how much she ate and what was in the bite she got, but when I did, she lunged like a little maniac and took a giant bite! She loved it. She knows what’s up. I don’t think she got much more than the crispy bread and cheese. I try to not give her meat, but she may have gotten a teeny tiny amount, and that’s fine with me.

I just had to brag on her being so good!

Today, she also discovered water bottles and now expects to drink water straight out of the bottle. It’s hilarious to see her do it! (And no, I don’t buy bottled water, but we were at a neighbor’s party, so i had one there.) 🙂
