This is a post for the Tots 100 Bloghop. The theme this month is “Baby’s First Day Out”:
The small one’s first outing was to Babies R Us when she was 2 weeks old. I forget what we needed. It was possibly muslins or vests – some kind of essential we didn’t realise we’d need so many of.
I had barely left the house since the birth – I was still suffering from SPD and recovering from an emergency c-section so going anywhere at all was a real treat. I could barely walk, but still I insisted on carrying my beautiful girl, wrapped up in the blanket my mum had lovingly crocheted, all the way around the store.
I’m sure there was preparation – packing & repacking, clothes, nappies, car seats and all, but all I can remember is shuffling slowly and painfully, supported on Mr MilkChic’s arm, grinning from ear to ear and stopping to chat to everyone and anyone who looked our way. She felt so fragile and amazing, and I was so proud and shocked that she was mine.
Not the most exciting first outing, and this post is unlikely to win me Â£100 in vouchers from this month’s sponsor either…but writing it has made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
