a photo of Emmet every week in 2017
Yesterday Emmet and I met Dave out at the pasture for a little walk in the prairie. The weather was absolutely perfect and we had just gotten our new BabyBjorn carrier and needed to try it out! Emmet outgrew our old one and our hikes in the prairie were becoming pretty inconvenient having to carry him, so we decided to get him one that he could grow into a little. PLUS in retrospect we should have just gotten this one in the first place, because it can be adjusted for newborns. You live and you learn.
Emmet seemed a little grouchy at first, probably because I picked him right out of bed and plopped him in his car seat for an hour drive, but as soon as we put his little feet down in the grass he started to enjoy himself! He would reach for the flowers and the tall grasses to play with, but walking in them wasn't his favorite. They were much too tickley! We'll work on him though, this little boy has many walks out in this pasture in his future.
