A Mini Play Date


Meet Emma!

This is Sophia’s youngest girlfriend, that she insists on calling “baby, or ma.” She has not been able to pronounce her name yet, but we are working on that.

I really enjoy scheduling play dates for Sophia to be around other kids, considering she is an only child right now. Plus it gives my friend Paula and I the opportunity to catch up with each other, since we are both stay-at-home moms it works out to be kinda perfect.


Our girls day started at PF Changs at the Waterfront in Pittsburgh. Have you ever been to PF Changs? It was my first time there. What I found to be really awesome about this restaurant is that they have a special menu for people that have a shellfish allergy, like how I do.

I got their sweet & sour soup and their Sweet & Sour Chicken. I loved it, but I honestly did not care for the soup too much.


There is a really intense conversation going on between these two!


Sophia learned how to pick up her Cheddar Bunnies with Chopsticks at PF Changs!

If you have not bought Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies found at Target go get them soon, they are so good. And Organic!


Right in the center of the Waterfront there is a courtyard that has a Starbucks  right in the center. Which is always convenient, but it is a really nice little area to allow kids to burn off some pent up energy.

Sophia really does not enjoy being in her stroller anymore, and sometimes shopping can be quite challenging because she wants to walk around.

Sophia will turn to me and say “walk mommy peeas,” if I say “no,” she will then stretch her lips out to give me a kiss. Then I normally give into her. Who can resists such a sweet kiss.

After when we were done browsing around at different store, I promised Sophia that she could play in the courtyard, before heading home.


Sophia enjoyed running through the leaves, especially without her shoes on. Maybe next year Emma will be joining Sophia!!


I wonder what we are going to do for our next play date! Especially once winter comes around!

I hope you enjoyed our mini play date!
