Our mall had this cool living room area setup that was perfect for when she needed to eat. She had her bottle while I sipped my grande mocha from Starbucks, just like girlfriends hanging out at the mall. Except that she's a newborn baby and wasn't much for conversation.
We survived our second diaper change in a public restroom (our first was as a family in the family restroom at Scheels. Sir Sunderland refused to let me take a picture....). And can I just say that people are weird? Sweet, but weird. I thought all the comments from strangers when I was pregnant was a bit intense, but with the baby, we're on a whole new level.
I also learned that when taking your adorable newborn out into public, her socks should be matching. It's one thing when you're in the comfort of your own home, but come on Lauren! You can't manage to find a matching pair of socks one day? I'm putting her on the one-way track to appearing on What Not to Wear.
It was a nice and refreshing way to spend our afternoon out of the house, we'll have to do it again sometime.
