|currently one of my favorite pics of B...those eyes! :)|
On Wednesday my mom and I spent the whole day running errands. It was a great day and I LOVED getting out! Some things I learned were...
-always feed baby right before you put her in the car to avoid an unpleasant car ride
-go to Nordstrom midday/midweek if you want to meet or mingle with other mommy friends
-take someone to watch your baby when buying new bras. (ps be prepared to buy HUGE bras! I was stoked!)
- Costco has a great patio furniture section for nursing. I'm sure this is not what it is there for but definitely what I used it for...keepin' it classy

Yesterday I took the big plunge and drove to lunch with B by myself. While she didn't scream the whole way there was some crying that went on in that car seat. I have a mirror so that I can see her in her car seat. I'm not sure what good it does since I can't do much for her when she's crying while I'm driving but somehow it makes me feel better when I can see her screaming instead of just hearing her. :( She was such a good girl during lunch! She slept in the baby Bjorn, nursed, and pooped...the whole shebang! I really enjoyed getting out and spending time with other mommies. After lunch we went to Carrie's house to hang out and by the time we got home from there she was asleep in her car seat! Success! I'm learning that it makes a WORLD of difference when I get out of the house. Now if I can only figure out how to get out of the house without spending money...
