Kate is at the age where she is more fun. Between zero and three months, babies are just…kind of…well, blobs. At just over four months, Kate seems to realize there is more to the world besides the four walls of our home. So we are trying to do more things, have more fun. Kate is also at the age of maximum portability. Pretty soon, she is going to want to crawl and hoist herself up, not hang around in my arms. So time is of the essence.
It is easy to just want to stay home with a baby. To go out entails use of the car seat and the stroller and a diaper bag stuffed full with a change of clothes, burb clothes, ring toys, cell phone, wallet, keys, etc… And it can be tempting to be hermits. But we always have more fun when we get out. So we challenge ourselves to rejoin society, take some pictures, make some memories.
