Mal, Q, Murphy, and I finally got out of the house this weekend! Hooray! Since I’m breastfeeding and Q eats every 1-3 hours, I’m basically on his schedule, which means we’ve stuck close to home since he was born (except for a couple of trips to the park and the pediatrician). Mal and I were both feeling some serious cabin fever (and getting cranky about it), so we made ourselves get out of the house and, man, we needed it!
On Friday morning, we swung by Marylou’s for iced coffees and then took our boys (the furry one and the not-so-furry one) to the park for a walk.
It was a beautiful morning, and I loved being active outside in the sunshine!
After the park, we re-grouped (I worked, Mal did a driveway WOD, Q slept, and Murphy crushed pillows on the sun porch) and then we drove to the Hingham Shipyard for lunch at Hingham Beer Works.
We fed Q right before we went to lunch, so we hoped he’d sleep while we ate. He ended up waking up and getting a little cranky, but some rocking and burping did the trick. And, thankfully, the restaurant was big enough and not too crowded that a fussy baby wasn’t too stressful for us or other patrons. You could barely hear him in a big, noisy restaurant! Thank goodness!
I ordered the Shrimp & Chicken Stir Fry for lunch, which was awesome. I actually always order it when I go to Beer Works. Mmm!
On Sunday, we got out of the house again for Matthew’s first birthday party!
I can’t believe his little guy is already a year old! Where does the time go?!
I love his enthusiasm for cake. We are definitely related.
Q met his great grandmother for the first time at Matthew’s party. And, of course, she loved him!
