Madaket Meal and Carrier Frustrations
Yesterday, we lazed around for quite a while. After eating breakfast with Aunt Katherine:
…Lila took about a two hour nap! Works for me.
Once she woke up, we decided to head to the opposite side of the island—Madaket. Madaket is on the far side of Nantucket—and is also where we stayed two years ago. We like our house better this year, but as far as location goes, you can’t beat our Madaket beach house!
Not to mention, we were practically right next door to a *very* tasty restaurant—Madaket Millie’s. We decided to pay Millie’s a visit for lunch, after exploring the back bay.
Well, the *plan* was the explore the back bay. Unfortunately, the bay isn’t stroller-friendly, and someone:
…has decided that she HATES her Ergo carrier. It makes me so mad—she used to love it! But now, we put her in the Ergo, and she immediately starts to just wail and beat her head against my chest. I think it’s because she still has to use the infant insert—she’s not nearly big enough for the carrier alone yet. But, the insert is kind of confining—I think it makes her feel a little claustrophobic!
Have any other mamas out there had their babies turn against the carrier? I think we might try the bjorn—it’s a little less constrictive.
Anyway, we tried to carry her, but she wasn’t having it, so Ryan and I strolled her around Madaket until lunch time.
Lunch at Millie’s was just as we remembered: delicious:
My picture is blurry, but that’s a big pile of lobster salad on top of mixed greens with fresh corn salad and potatoes underneath. Ryan had the scallop tacos, and they were mighty tasty.
