First Restaurant Trip

August 13, 2009 Sarah Coggins

Dylan had his first restaurant trip today. We went to lunch with four other moms and babies from the prenatal water aerobics class I took in the first half of the year. It was so much fun catching up and meeting the babies who ranged from our 3.5 weeks up to 12 weeks. We met at Foster’s Market in Durham and, thanks to cool weather, sat out on the covered porch to eat.

Dylan was the only baby to sleep through the entire adventure:

Afterwards, I decided to take my chances and detour by Babies R Us on the way home. I needed a couple of items and it was on the way. Dylan woke up about 3 miles from the store and cried a little – stopping just short of the store. I went on after promising him we’d be quick. He was a complete angel in the store – enjoying the ride and looking at the bright lights.

One of the reasons for our stop was a little gift for him – carrier strap covers. Trent & I have been thinking those straps might be cutting into his neck. We also realized tonight that the straps were set one notch too low (our little guy is growing!). After the adjustment and addition of the covers, he was one happy little guy before our evening walk:
