Week Three: We Went Out

April 11, 2016

It all started because we ran out of 0-3 month baby outfits. I told Tom I needed to go to the thrift store to buy more baby clothes. He said I needed to do laundry. Update: I have done laundry since and Tom was totally right, our baby was way too many clothes.

Anyhow, we managed to get out of the house after two attempts.  I was torn between keeping the baby in the car seat or taking him out and putting him in our baby wrap. So I did both. The first stop I kept him in the car seat, then I fed him, and put him in the Solly wrap to carry him through Ollies and Goodwill. I was able to get him in the Solly wrap in four minutes flat in the Ollies parking lot and he fell right asleep; confirmation that the Solly wrap is the best thing ever

Carrying the baby on my own (his car seat is HEAVY- or am I just a wuss?) and feeding him in the Ollies parking lot made me feel like a super hero. Seriously. Our trip was a success for those reasons alone. I also scored three outfits for the baby and three outfits for me for $23.25 at Community Aid. That’s good right? Tom said he would have been impressed if it was under $6.00 but true story- thrift stores aren’t as cheap as they used to be- little baby pants were $2.99 a piece (whhatt).
