Out & About

At just barely over a week postpartum, the Keenans had their first family of four outing (other than to the pediatrician of course)!  I was itching for some fresh air, and since I have had one of the fastest & easiest recoveries, today was the perfect day to start settling back into our normal routine!  

We didn't go too crazy, but instead opted for a calm morning at the farm close to our house.  Right now there are all sorts of baby cows & goats that Liam just loves to watch.  He mostly loves it when they have "nini" (nurse)!  Plus there are always tractors at work, geese to chase, & his most favorite part: the wagon ride!

I was hopeful that Finn would sleep in the wrap for the majority of our time there, but I still wasn't sure exactly what to expect.  It was surreal just strapping both boys into their carseats; being a family of four in the car...  As if this is how it was meant to be all along!  Everything went smoothly, almost too smooth.  Let's hope this keeps up when it's just me trying to get the boys out of the house each day!  


Finn did in fact sleep in my solly baby wrap the entire 2 hours we were there!  However, Liam told me to make sure that Finn's eyes weren't covered up so that he could see all the animals!!!  He just keeps melting my heart each day.  Before we left, Liam played on the playground while I nursed Finn.  I feel like a breastfeeding expert after my 2+ years with Liam, so nursing in public is just no big deal.  The morning felt natural & perfect and fulfilled all my hopes & expectations of what our first outing would be like!


I simply cannot wait for all the adventures we have ahead of us!

  4. It only gets better! Big brothers are amazing. I am thankful recovery is going well. Yes, there will be hard days with two, BUT they are far and few between! Two is amazing!

  8. What a fun morning!! So glad your recovery has been easy. Maybe it's something about subsequent pregnancies? Allow yourself some grace when you are on your own...just in case you're running late. ;)

  12. I'm so glad to hear that you are recovering so quickly and life as a family of four is transitioning well. You look like a pro on your first outing and that is amazing that Finn slept so well in your solly baby wrap. He looks so teeny tiny in there... I forget how small newborns are!

  13. Isn't the first out so incredibly surreal?! Everything from the two car seats being filled to holding hands with your big little and walking with your newest little in a wrap. It's just all so very amazing! So happy your first outing went so smoothly and recovery is going well for you! Life with two-it's exciting thus far!
