Eden is four weeks old today (!) and Friday, we took our first thrifting trip together. This was actually my first solo outing with her. Reed and I have gone a few places with her together.. but until now I've been a little nervous to go it alone. Friday though.. I felt like we were ready. So off to the Salvation Army we went..
She's still really young.. but I figured if nobody was touching her then she'd be fine to be out in public. I figured the Salvation Army was a good place to start because it's close and I know the layout well - and know there are fitting rooms and a restroom. We ended up in the fitting room 3 different times.. once when I was legitimately trying on some pants and the other two times for nursing.
(Gotta love the dirty, thrift store mirror)
Overall, it was definitely a success. E is good about getting fussy before she straight out wails.. so if I noticed her getting irritated I just picked her up and she would quiet down. But I realized, even if she started crying.. it's not like people haven't heard it before. You can't be afraid of a little crying.
I really want for us to be able to maintain our normal routines and hobbies (to some extent..) with the baby, so I'm happy this little trip was a success. Ah, mom life. I really am loving it :)
Hope you had a great weekend!
