Baby's Day Out (With Me - His Mother)

Yesterday Wyatt and I took our first real shopping trip together!

It started out a little rough. I had to pull over to the side of the road for an emergency diaper change on the way to town. Then Wyatt got hungry a good half hour before I expected he would and cried up and down the aisles of Walmart.

A nice lady in the checkout line offered to help me put my items on the counter while I comforted him. You know how people are extra nice to you when you're pregnant? They're also extra nice to you when you have a new baby. I'm going to soak up the niceness as long as it lasts.

We went out to the car and I fed him - it went quite well, and it wasn't nearly so scary as I thought it would be.

After that he slept like a rock through the rest of our trip, and all the way home. I guess the shopping just wore him out.

I spilled my Starbucks drink all over the car. I only got to consume about 40% of it before the tragic incident occurred. It was kind of sad, because I had bought it as a special treat for our first trip to town together.

But I had a Diet Coke stashed away in the bottle bag, so I just enjoyed that instead! Not quite the same, but still satisfying.

I got this asymmetrical shirt at Gap, only in grey. It's a workout shirt. Fabulous, no?


Usually I work out in old, sweaty t-shirts, but I was so excited about my new purchase that I went home, fed Wyatt, then tried it out with the Shred.

Dare I say I actually felt cute while working out? I did. Gracious, with workout clothes that cute, I would almost consider taking up a more public method of burning calories, like running or something.

Notice I said almost. I'm sorry my marathoning friends, I'm just not a runner.

But I discovered I enjoy working out much more when I'm wearing some decent clothes.

And I can use all the motivation I can get. By some miracle the pregnancy weight came off within the first week, but that doesn't mean my stomach looks anything like it used to. I need to tone, tone, tone!

I topped off the afternoon by taking a shower and using my new coconut body scrub and honeysuckle and orange peel body wash that I bought at the store. I usually don't buy body washes, because I have far too many bath things as it is, but I saw these on the shelf and couldn't resist.



After my shower I felt quite pampered. Wyatt took a nice nap, giving me a chance to compose this post.

And to top it off we watched Biggest Loser together that night. I am in calorie-burning mode, I tell you!

Unfortunately, I'm also in calorie-consuming mode, but that's a whole other story.




P.S. I wanted to say a big congratulations to my dear blogging friend Jenene, who just welcomed her baby girl into the world early yesterday morning! She was like a labor rock star - I talked to her on Facebook Monday night, and three hours later she had her baby with no problems at all! And little Sohpia Grace is a cutie, I tell you . . . here's to many shopping trips and good times with your sweet baby, Jenene!

That shirt is adorable! I'm thinking I may need to invest in that for some workout motivation!

And seriously, the pregnancy weight came off in the first week...I can only hope and pray that when I get pregnant that happens to me!

LOL, you are too funny. I cracked up about taking your calorie burning out in public- I'm the same way!

Anne said...

You go girl! Sounds like you're rockin' motherhood like a pro!

Ohh, and that bath stuff looks lovely! :)

Amanda said...

Well it sounds like your day out went pretty well. Once, before I was pregnant, I had wanted starbucks ALL day. So on the way home from work I picked one up and dropped it in my garage. I drank only 1 sip of it. And I think I actually cried about it.

Brittany Ann said...

That tops adorable! And don't worry. You aren't along. I always feel better working out with cute workout clothes on!

It's good to get out and I love that you feel cute when working out as I never do. Buuuut I did treat myself to some new colourful trainers, that counts right?

Amber said...

Sounds like a pretty successful trip to me...especially for a first outing! You'll have to warn me on how long it takes to get your tummy back...I'm a little nervous about that. Don't like the idea of not being able to wear a swimsuit this summer!

Oh, and that workout shirt...adorable! It's most DEFINITELY easier to work out when you look cute doing it!

Jessica said...

Sounds like a great day! I just bought that same body wash a week ago, and I love it...smells sooo good!

Melanie said...

Loved reading about your first outting with just you and Wyatt! I agree..soak up that niceness from people while it lasts..it AMAZES me sometimes how people will go out of their way to be nice to you if your pregnant or have a little one! :-) Oh and speaking of body washes..Nivea makes some REALLY good ones!

Hey. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I LOVE that shirt! Wish I could feel cute whilst working out. Is that Jillian's Shred? My friend introduced me to that when I visited her in the States last year. Haven't done it since though! You also have a cute little one. Belated congratulations! :)
