You know, when you hear nothing but ways to prevent your child from getting sick or being exposed to germs for the entire first month of their life it is pretty hard to forget those things. They stick with ya for a LONG time. And when their pediatrician tells you that if they get sick they WILL go back in the hospital, well you are going to do every thing under the sun to prevent that from happening. I guess that is why I never really thought to take them outside for a stroll. There are germs outside! They could get a runny nose from too much wind. Someone could be burning leaves 5 miles away and they would be exposed to it!
But I have pretty much gotten over all the "outside germ" fears. I decided that if my babies can't have a normal life by meeting friends and family, going to church, going to the mall and so on and so forth.........then they can at least play outside like normal kids, right? Right. So, my goal is to take them outside every day for at least 30 minutes. Well, as long as it is not too windy!
Aunt Bets bought them their jackets that they have on in these pictures and poor James' almost wouldn't cover his head! When she bought them they were practically falling off of their heads.
