out and about Seattle

Posted by lena on June 3rd, 2008 filed in baby news

I don’t know how mothers find the courage to take their newborns anywhere.  What with the pooping and crying and feeding that constantly needs get be done – its enough to make anyone want to lock themselves indoors and never leave.  This is where grandmothers come in.  I never would have left the house today without the help of grandma Susie.  We bundled Ilya up, packed the enormous diaper bag, and set off for downtown.  We got to have lunch with dad and did some shopping at Pike Place Market.  Ilya woke up and needed to be changed and fed, but she was such an angel.  She hardly fussed and was so fascinated  by everything going on around her.  She definitely likes it better when I hold her than riding in the stroller.  I guess I’ll just get used to scouting out places that I go for good nursing benches and flat surfaces for changing.  Maybe I won’t have to live my life secluded inside my home.

    On one of the folk pictures Ilya does the baby power salute. I miss that! Hail to all babies!

    Going places gets easier and then at some point around 2 years old it switches again and you need a team. I think in a few months you’ll be amazed at the upper body strength you’ll gain from all the lifting.
    She looks so beautiful, healthy and happy. Keep up the good work! :0)
