Ronan also had his first cart ride ever at Ikea. He thought it was the best fun ever. He banged his little hands on the cart handle and looked around smiling at everything and everyone. He had more fun in that cart than I have seen him have doing almost anything else in his life.
He sat in his cozy little cart cover to save him from germs and to cushion his bum from the hard metal bars. I can't imagine those are very comfortable to sit on. Did you know that shopping cart handles tested with more germs and bacteria than public restroom toilet seats? Yeah, that's right. And kids love to suck on the handle of a cart. So I am glad that Nana made us this cover for Christmas.
You can tell he is having a great time.
This is what I call the gorilla pose. Ronan sits like this often.
Daddy put on all the baby lotions after bath time. Ronan has some pretty bad eczema and needs to be greased up at least as couple times a day. We use gallons of Baby Aquaphore at our house.
