So we decided to take a trip with you. To new york! It's not so bad. .. about four hours by bus. Guess what your dad did? He booked three tickets for the four of us!! Egads!
Luckily someone didn't show up and we got in. Right in the end of the bus. But you made up for it. You were a complete champ. I was scared you would be crying and fussy throughout the way.... but you didn't miss a beat. You slept when the bus started , woke up for a bit in between. Nursed and slept rest of the way and were so happy to look at everyone. The subway did scare you a bit, but then you got used to them all fast! And you shocked me by smiling happily at all the African American nice ladies! It's true , travelling wIth babies is fun :)
Everyone suddenly talks to you, And all grannies give advice from everything ranging from early solids foods to clothes to learning to playing , etc and etc ad infinitum..
I took you out in the moby wrap, the first time too and you loved it! You slept when tired and only cried when hungry. Unfortunately I still haven't mastered the art of nursing while carrying you though. Maybe that's today :)
Thank you baby for making today a fun day. Will post more tomorrow.
Second and third day
Today was the day when you nursed in the moby wrap. woohoo! right in rockefeller center too. This was when i totally felt like a super mom ! today as well you enjoyed the subway, central park, the ducks, the breeze , all of it. unfortunately by evening you were very tired becoz mommy made a rookie mistake and kept you up too long. then we had to deal with your meltdown. oh boy i'm not making THAT mistake again ! and again , what a difference the wrap made ! i could carry you everywhere and soothe you super easily. and maybe you got extra attatched to me after all that wearing , but hey! i'm not complaining ! :P
our way back was a bit harder. that was an afternoon-evening bus and you weren't that sleepy. more interested in talking to the nice girls sitting next to us and you kept trying to get their attention for the better part of the trip! oh and boy were you so happy that they responded to you finally after all your babbling and cooing. Did i tell you , how you enjoyed times square ? oh man, you went all wide eyed and crazy and excited about seeing all the colors and screens and ppl. though the first time the sheer number of ppl did freak you out a bit.
hmm, the only mistake i made was not packing an extra pair of clothes for you. and you had to unfortunately sit for a while in your poopy shirt after a nasty blowout.
In all you were awesome and dad & mom only had one fight about you. this was totally a successfull experiment and totally geared us for the next big trip ! :)
