I rely on Ron a lot when we go out with Simon so I thought I’d try to take a short trip with him by myself. Since I was only going to Borders, which is a few blocks away, I probably didn’t need his diaper bag but I brought it just in case and stuffed my wallet and phone in it. I didn’t want to handle the Snap’n’go down the front steps so strapped Simon into the Baby Bjorn.
He was having a fussy day so probably wasn’t the best day to take him on a walk but he enjoyed the wind on his face and calmed down when we were outside. He only fussed while we were in the store. I think because the second floor in the children’s section was overheated. He also wanted to eat but only 1 oz at a time, every 30-60 minutes. We don’t understand his eating habits, sometimes he can guzzle 3 oz at one time and sometimes he only wants to snack. He had eaten before we left but it was a good thing I prepared a bottle for our outing. I’m not sure how I would manage to unstrap him from the Baby Bjorn and breastfeed him while he was fussing… I will have to practice that.
We made it home okay with no major meltdowns. The walk uphill to our apartment building was good exercise, it got my heart rate going. I was really warm though with Simon against my chest, he and I were both a bit sweaty.
Simon really likes to stick out his tongue at us now.
I wonder if this will be trouble when he starts eating solid food. I can imagine him pushing the food out of his mouth with his tongue… what a mess that will be!
