Growing up fast...

With Will now able to sit up by himself, some things have gotten easier. Like going to Target. I would lift the (heavy) car-seat out of the car with Will inside and snap it into the stroller base. Then I would stroll him around the store and if I found something I wanted to buy, I'd either a) hold it in one hand and push the stroller with the other, or b) put it underneath the stroller, hoping it didn't look like I was trying to steal. Not the easiest. (I know you can balance the car seat on top of the cart, but I'm so short that I couldn't see around in front of us when I did that, and it was a little scary!). So yesterday, I decided to try and have Will sit in front of the cart.

Ta da! It was SO much easier! And I think he really liked being able to look around.

Then last night we went to one of our favorite restaurants - Dave's Italian Kitchen. After telling Matt of Will's successful buggy ride earlier that day, we decided to try out a high chair. He could barely see over the top of the table and looked a little funny, but I think he enjoyed it and had a good time!

(Excuse the terrible phone pics!)

Today the weather was really nice so we took advantage of it and went for a walk. It was sunny and got up to the 40's - you can tell in the picture that the snow started melting!


We took the "big kid" stroller - I think he appreciated not having to look at the sky and tree-tops like he would in his car-seat stroller. We even put on his New Balance kicks (he usually just wears socks) and sunglasses! What a big kid! He is just growing up too fast!

I love his alligator hoodie! He looks so cute sitting up in the buggy! I'm really looking forward to seeing him again in a few weeks. He's getting so big!

He looks so cute sitting in the buggy and high chair!! Lucy absolutely loved riding in the buggy for the first time and she still loves it! I'm glad it's getting a little easier for you - that's a welcome progression I'm sure - even though it means he's growing up. =)
