Out and About with Naomi

Since the last post, we have been on two outings with Naomi. The first was to the hospital to get Naomi a vaccination for a strain of the cold virus that causes pneumonia. The second outing was to Harbor Land, a beautiful tourist spot with shops and restaurants on the harbor. We went to our favorite restaurant "Humming Bird" with Doug's mom (aka Grammy) for dinner. While we were there, the owner gave us complementary sparkling rose water with mini roses floating in the middle to celebrate the birth of Naomi. The owner also gave Naomi a little gift, a pair of tiny moccasins that are supposed to bring good fortune. During both outings, we learned quite a bit about the amount of time and effort it takes to travel with a baby. If it hadn't been for Grammy getting Naomi ready while we showered and dressed on the day of our first outing, we would have been at least an hour late for Naomi's appointment. On our way to the hospital and back, we learned quickly to be on the look out for elevators and to avoid stairs. On our second outing, we discovered how difficult it is to get out of the house with a baby. Once we fed her, we had to burp her. Then she spit up, and when I lifted her up to put her in her bassinet to change her dirty diaper, I discovered that it had leaked onto my sweater and pants. While I changed out of my clothes, Grammy dressed Naomi, during which time Naomi fussed and eventually cried herself to sleep. While all that was going on, Doug prepared everything for the stroller. It was quite an adventure and we hadn't even left the house. Now that Naomi is bigger, she is now about 6 pounds, we plan to go for walks every day. It is our aim to get lots of practice getting ourselves and Naomi ready, and to get some much needed fresh air and exercise, and of course, it also gives us a chance to show off our sweet little angel! In that spirit, enjoy the new pictures. We'll post more when we get them. Until next time, have a beautiful day!
