Baby’s day out!

ANZ DocklandsDocklands, MelbourneDaddy and work

Baby’s first outing to daddy’s work

Yesterday I took baby out for the first time to visit daddy at his work in the city with the help of my sister! It ended up being a very eventful first outing without daddy – hot weather, Docklands during corporate lunch hour, a visit to daddy’s office, a dead car battery meant a call to the RACV Roadside Assist truck, an exciting visit to some friends with babies in Balaclava and peak hour traffic on the way home. Seeing everyone in their suits made me miss dressing up in crisp shirts and heels for work (I’ve been living in t-shirts and leggings these past 5 weeks!).

I am slowly practicing taking baby out and have found that it is all about organisation, preparation and patience. It was quite warm yesterday and I was exhausted by the end of the day, however visiting daddy and some friends and their babies made it all worthwhile! Baby was so good and slept in his pram and in the car through most of the day – even during the 20 minute wait for the RACV man! I think after yesterday’s shenanigans, I should be able to handle a more easy trip to the shops on my own 🙂 Practice makes perfect!

Happy birthday Mr Hubby/Daddy/DJ Atomik! (Today is Wes’ birthday!) 

What baby travelling tips can you give a first-time mummy?
