Had to do a shopping trip this afternoon with both girls, and for the first time, put Audrey in the seat area. She’ll be eight months old next week. Normally I wear her in a wrap, but she’s ready and eager to sit up (and crawl, and pull up, and get into everything, oh lord. Yes the baby gates are now up.). I remember I wore Freya while shopping until she was ten months old. But they are very different girls.
Freya rode in the main area of the cart, with the food. All things considered, she did a great job. They both did. Had a bit of the deja vu — Audrey was as cheerful as ever and got lots of attention for it, as her sister did for the same reason years ago. Having happy babies makes this errand much, much easier.
I guess the next step will be when Freya is ready to walk with me. I’d like to delay that one as long as I can!
