Out and About at Art Hill
New Parent Rule No. 1: Get out of the house. It doesn’t matter that the baby is fussy, that you look like a zombie or that packing for an outing is a hassle. You. Must. Get. Out. Of. The. House.
Ben and I are learning to be out and about with the kid. Of course, restaurant dining is still intimidating, but that’s why we ordered takeout one beautiful StL evening and headed over to Art Hill in Forest Park.
Amir did well and was distracted by the sights and sounds long enough for his parents to eat. And then it was his turn to eat, at which point I covered up to nurse him.
It was a wonderful evening, even during Little Man’s short crying bouts. For baby and parents, fresh air is very necessary.
