traveling with baby at 7 months

now that ben can sit up on his own, he can sit in the grocery cart. my relatives (hi sarah & laurie) gave me a mat-like thing that you drape over the seat of the cart with a little pillow and toys all attached. ben sits in his seat and can take it all in. i haven't heaved my stroller out of the trunk to go into a store since december! and shopping in winners with a cart is so much easier! who knew? then i went to the dollar store yesterday and they have the baskets with wheels. i plopped ben into this little basket and rolled him around the store. i laughed to myself the whole time because he was having such a good time rolling around. when he's 10, he'll be so tired of hearing me say, "i used to put you in these baskets and roll you around." but man, it was cute. i'm loving the new transportation.

Sounds like Ben is becoming a much more fun shopper! I remember seeing those mats for shopping carts a long time ago and thinking they seemed like a good idea. Glad Ben agrees.

I'm glad shopping is easier for you now. I am getting a fantastic mental pic of what little Mr. Ben looks like in the basket, but I agree with Judy - photos would really make this post.
