Irish Fest

Saturday afternoon we met up with several friends (Dori, Tom, and Laura Beth) and went to the Irish Fest downtown. We had never been and thought that it would be fun and a good opportunity to get Nolan out and about. We have gone on several little outings and figured that the only way that we were going to get used to getting all ready and managing being out in public (with diaper changes and breastfeeding) was to get out and do it!!! We had a blast and Nolan did sooo well!!! We ate some good food, listened to some music, watched some dancing, and enjoyed walking around doing a little shopping. Nolan was perfectly happy riding around in his stroller for the majority of the time. We had a few feedings using the hooter hider (thanks Lori) and a diaper change. He definitely wasn't afraid to let us know when he was ready to go home which was fine because I think we were all ready to head home as well. All in all it was a very successful day and I look forward to more family outings!

In other updates Nolan slept on his own last night in 2-2 1/2 hour chunks of time!!!! It was wonderful!!! Kevin and I were both able to sleep and only had to get up to feed and change diapers. We hope that this will continue.......

Here are some pictures from Irish Fest....

  1. So my question would be why does it look like you were manning everything (diaper bag and stroller) and Kevin was just eating?!??!! :) :) LOL

    Glad to hear things went well on your outing...they do get easier.
