I promised him that we would make up for it this year, and we sure did!
We went to the Boone County Fair today. Drew's parents and my brother, Greg, also came with us. The first thing we did when we got there was make a beeline for some food. I mean, how do you go the fair and not get fair food? I had a pork chop sandwich and everybody else had other stuff. I'm not too sure what, I was too involved in my sandwich!
After we finished eating, Annelise was starting to get a little fussy in her stroller, so I decided to test out the Moby wrap. I've put her in it a few times quickly at home, but never while we were out somewhere. I figured it was worth a try to see how she did.
She woke up hungry, so we all sat on some benches and I nursed her. I decided that I was going to nurse her without my cover. It's not fair to her to make her nurse underneath that cover when it's warm out. It actually felt very empowering to nurse in public like that. I feel like I'm doing my part to normalize something that is so natural.
The Winnebago County Fair is next weekend and I'm looking forward to going to that. Annelise did so well in the Moby that I think we might purchase an Ergo this week to try out.
