Nervous, he takes Mira’s free hand. “Uh… we’re kinda new to this, so…” Having some sort of help would be good, right? Glancing over at Mira, Ulric grins nervously. “Some help would be great.”
“Oh, shopping for your newborn?” The woman asked.
Mira blushed as she squeezed Ulric’s hand. A year old, Blue is one year old. So Mira shook her head with a nervous smile. “No, actually…uh…he’s a year old. His birthday’s coming up, so…” Mira tried to make up a story as best she could. “We wanted to buy him all new stuff. Y’know, so he’d have all the right things that a one year old needs…” She took a glance to Ulric, wondering if the lady was buying into it.
“Oh, you’re baby is lucky to have such caring parents! Are you looking for anything in particular?” As it seemed the woman bought the story, Mira looked back to Ulric, still blushing. “Uh…f-food?”
Food was a good start. Nodding his assent, Ulric looks between the two women. “For starters, yeah. And new furniture.” A bed, definitely. Sleeping on the couch with him might be a good solution for now, but he was already starting to feel it.
“Toys, too.” Anything to keep the TV from being pulled apart again.
“Yeah, food for a start. Uh…he still doesn’t have many teeth yet. So…I-I’d say soft foods, for now?” Mira questionably nodded at Ulric then back to the woman. “And toys, yes. He’s uh…” She chuckled a bit nervously, slinking the hand that Ulric was holding now around his waist, fiddling with the fabric of his shirt again. “Our little inventor.”
The woman smiled at the two, nodding. “Now a one year old will usually be able to eat the same foods as you do, in smaller portions. Soft food is good depending on his teeth.” She turned, continuing to talk, letting Mira and Ulric follow along. “Lots of veggies and fruit which I’m sure you’ve been feeding him through earlier formulas already. Are you still breast feeding, dear?”
Mira gripped Ulric’s shirt and blushed, the pink on her cheeks more obvious this time. How awkward. “N-n-n-no! I mean, no. Uh, no…just…out of the bottle. Speaking of, we need a new one…right?” She turned up to Ulric again.
