Mommy's Little Helper?

Jennifer Garner resurfaced in Santa Monica, Calif. on Monday for a doctor's appointment -- with daughter Violet, 6, carting a doll in a toy baby carrier. The real thing -- baby brother Samuel, born Feb. 27 -- evidently stayed at home.

Wearing sunglasses, the Arthur actress, 37, stayed covered up in in baggy jeans, sweater and a lightweight jacket.

Little Samuel is the third child and the first son for Garner and husband Ben Affleck, whose middle child is Seraphina, 3. Garner was first spotted post-birth cruising in her Land Rover in Pacific Palisades last Wednesday. (Sleepy-looking dad Affleck, 37, was photographed the same day smoking a cigarette.)

"I live my life at these two extremes," Garner has said. "I'm either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress.”

She gave a snapshot of her full-time mom day back in late 2009: "Getting the kids up and fed, getting one to school, getting the other down for a nap, going to the grocery store, picking one up from school, getting the other one down for another nap, cooking dinner."
