Well, with Daddy gone, Grandma and I took Seven out for (what else?) shopping! We hit every baby store in the mall and had a terrific time. Grandma spoiled her newest grandbaby and Seven charmed everyone we saw! And I had my first instances of internal debate about how to respond to people. No one said anything inappropriate, but we had one store clerk tell me I looked fabulous for just having a baby and another new mom talked about how great it was to no longer be pregnant. I just went with however I was feeling. I was so happy that the clerk didn't mistake me for having a baby belly (and let's face it, I have a bigger belly that many pregnant women) that I shared that he was adopted with her. But with the new mom, I just went with the flow and agreed that it is much better now that he is here.
It was a really great day. The only disappointment was that I wanted to find a cute Easter outfit for Seven, but they apparently don't make what I wanted in his size. I wanted one of those cute sweater vest outfits, but the smallest we could ever find was 6 or 9 months or so. Oh well. If that is the worst part of the day, it must have been pretty good.
