Matt and I go grocery shopping every week on Sunday. Throughout the week sometimes Matt will go to the store to pick up a few items after getting William from daycare. Now that William is over six months old, the carts are safe for him to ride in directly. The first time he tried so was the day after William’s six month birthday, a week ago today, and he seemed to enjoy it.
Ironically, when we go to the grocery store together it’s later in the day, at which time the trip to the grocery store causes William to take a nap. In these cases we let him sleep in the carseat and bring it and the stroller in.
Today being a weekday, they went earlier in the day and William was wide awake, so Matt tried him out in the cart again.
William clearly enjoyed the experience. He grinned from ear to ear and enjoyed seeing all the things and people in the store.
People often come up to us and say what a happy baby he is. He definitely enjoys being out and about and sitting up like this he can see even more of the activity of the store than he otherwise could.
