Nature Baby

Too busy to blog because the in-laws were here. They left this morning after spending lots of quality time with Keegan. They really do enjoy him and that is nice to see. There wasn't even too much spoiling to speak of. A new outfit for next summer and a small toy to slobber all over. Except for yesterday when we were at the outlets in Kittery. We all couldn't resist the infant shoes. Are you ever too young for your first pair of Merrell mocs? I tried on one of those baby backpacks and carried him around the store. There was a major wieght difference between the backcountry and the base camp models. Frankly anywhere I need a heavyduty one, can just wait until the little guy can hike that far. They were cool but I have to think about how much I'd use it. If snowshoeing, hiking and non-stroller friendly travels are going to be that frequent with him. Did I mention the canopy top with optional rainshield?
Best part of the weekend? As my MIL was hugging me goodbye she told me that I am a wonderful mother. Why are words you aren't expecting to hear so striking?
