He-Man Baby

Seems we have a strong one!

In other news, today was Matt's first Father's Day. We celebrated by getting out of the 90 degree heat and into the air conditioned Barnes and Noble to burn $150 worth of gift cards we had accumulated. We bought Sam a boat-load of books and Matt got a couple computer books for himself (one of the gift cards was his).

When it comes to bringing baby along on such outings, Matt and I have been pretty wimpy. We probably haven't given Sam enough credit and feared that he would breakdown and scream in public. It happened once at our local library when Sam was six weeks old and the looks I got as we were rushing out the door have left me scarred.

Now that Sam is over 6 months old, we're realizing that he needs to get out and see more of the world, suburban book superstore included. We brought him along to B&N in his stroller and he was wide awake the whole time and taking it all in. We even stopped for lunch at the cafe and Sam was hamming it up with the people seated near us -- when he wasn't trying to grab my sandwich, that is.

So, not only do we have a strong baby who can lift up play mats, but we have a very good baby who deserves to be out in public a lot more. Another way to look at it is the public deserves to be in the presence of our great baby!

Absolutely! Sam is part of the general public and has just as much right to be anywhere as anyone else. And it would be wrong, so wrong of you to deny the world his cuteness! :)
