Look who rode in the shopping cart like a big girl for the first time this afternoon! She was very pleased with the new arrangement, and I must say it was nice to not go through the exercise of transferring her to the front carrier or lugging the whole car seat into the store. Probably could have done this sooner, but I'm finding that there's something about a third child that makes me very inclined not to rush things along - it all goes fast enough anyway.
Oh, and have I mentioned just how crazy Caroline is about her brother? Don't get me wrong, she loves Amy, too, but there is a special genuine fondness for William, and the feeling seems quite mutual.
