|Snuggled in her car seat.|
Afterward, we had a nap (obviously) while my intrepid Mother-in-law snuggled the baby. Then we picked up our friend M and her daughter P to go to a local breastfeeding support group. M and her husband D are our geographically closest close friends (does that make sense?) and we all got super close because we happened to be getting on the infertility hell roller coaster together about the same time we met. We introduced P and Groundhog for the first time a couple of days ago and just kind of stared in wonderment. Eighteen months ago we halfway believed that none of us would ever have kids. We love the idea of P as Groundy's first friend. P turned five months old today!
It was really interesting to be a non-breastfeeding person at the support group. These things are usually women only events, which in most cases means only one parent per baby. We went in part for the breastfeeding support- it was a great opportunity to have someone expert look at G's latch. But we also went to meet some other new parents who live near us. We've been rocking the suburbs for 5 years... suddenly we fit in.

These two adventures were a bit of an over-extension for one day for us. Tired tired tired. We might have let G sleep in the car set for a little bit when we got home because, um, sleeping.
