Get Out of the House with a New Baby
If it's raining, this outing is even better. You need to get out of the house, and your new favorite coffee shop is a place you can sit for an hour or two and just be proud that you went somewhere on your own. Yes, you can take the baby out in the rain or snow. Your mother surely took you. Go on! That hot chocolate has your name written all over it.
At this point in your baby's development, you have about 5 more months to enjoy cafe culture. And for your sake, we hope some of this time falls in the warmer months! Once your baby crawls, she won't be so tolerant of your fondness for people watching or spacing out, so live it up now.
