Amazingly, it wasn’t until you were exactly 2 weeks old, this past Sunday on Mother’s Day, that we finally rode together as a family of 4; together in the same car.
With Grandma staying with us for the first week of your life, she stayed home with your brother Jack when Mommy and I needed to take you to the doctor for a check-up.
But finally, our family got to ride in the same car today, as a family of 4, together on Mother’s Day. However, our little road trip wasn’t in one of our old cars.
Instead, we were graced with a 2016 Lexus IS 200t for this past week! What a way to go for our first family drive. I know you’re new in this world, but a Lexus is a very, very nice luxury brand with quite a reputation.
All the guys at my work drooled when they saw me in the parking lot. And I think Mommy had a hard time giving the car back after a week.
Last Thursday, Mommy took you in it to get your professional newborn pictures made. She texted me once she got there:
“Love that car! Want a Lexus one day for sure!”
She also loved getting to take the Lexus IS to go pick up groceries while I stayed home with you and Jack on Saturday morning.
As for Mother’s Day, having received her gifts on Sunday morning, she decided for her official Mother’s Day activity, she simply wanted to go out for a special treat at Jamba Juice, which is 16 miles away. She’s been craving their smoothies since she gave birth to you.
Your brother Jack decided he wanted a popsicle at Whole Foods right across the street, so Mommy got her Jamba Juice to go and we hung out there at the patio.
My treat was a Strawberry Serenity kombucha. (Yes, that’s what a vegan dad chooses as a “treat”.)
Your treat, as a 2 week old infant, was of course none other than milk.
It was so nice hanging out as a new family of 4, with treats in hand and sun on our skin.
And though I can’t be for sure that I can credit the Lexus for this, I do know you slept perfectly in the car the whole way there and the whole way back.
