It’s a beautiful day!

Oh how I wish every day could be this amazing. It’s a cool 70 degrees outside right now. The sun is shining through thin clouds and the smell of cut grass is in the air. Just too pretty to stay inside so I took ‘the boys’ for a walk. Walking a dog and pushing a stroller is a bit of a challenge but it can be done. There might even have been a bit of jogging. Not much, but enough to get my heart rate up. I wanted to walk for exercise but Krusty is more of a stop and smell the “roses” kinda dog so we split the difference.

This time I put Oscar in what I call the big boy section of the stroller! He normally sits in his car seat facing me, but he isn’t a super-fan of his carseat so I thought I would try this out. He faces out and can see the world around him, which is becoming increasingly more interesting. Of course not nearly as interesting as his own hands, but we’re getting there. The canopy on his stroller has a window in it so I could look down and check on him. He looks so tiny in there!

It was a lovely walk and Oscar didn’t make a sound the whole time! I kept thinking he had fallen asleep, but he was just contently looking around and taking in the fresh air. We had a great time! I love our stroller and walking without the car seat made it so easy! It makes me want to do it on a regular basis. Baby weight, you’ve been warned!

The BEST thing for a baby is fresh, spring air!
