A Trip Downtown


Friday and I actually had an adventure today - we took the train downtown to visit with Mu and Papa (my grandparents) who were on an Amtrak layover. Chicago (and maybe other places, too) is not easy to get around with a stroller, I've discovered. There are steps everywhere! The trains have steps, the stations have crazy revolving doors, and people give you dirty looks if you get in their way with a massive stroller contraption.

So, I didn't take the stroller. I tried my luck with one of those baby carriers. Not super easy to get around, either - but much more convenient than a bulky stroller. I couldn't fit my camera in the little bag I brought with me (not that I'd have been able to manage taking photos of us anyhow).

Our first trip on the train, first real test of the baby carrier, first diaper change in a public restroom. What fun!

Two months ago already?

One week old.  I like the outfit he has on in the photo - it didn't fit for long! Boy Friday is much bigger now, and my belly is quite a bit smaller. Perhaps I should crop my belly out of the photo.

Having sock issues.

Yes, his feet were big at birth. And they're still looking rather large. See evidence:
Ok, that's a bit exaggerated, as the sock was falling off. But still. His new red socks, however, fit very well! So, he's got one pair of socks that fit.

Boy Friday decided that he'd let mommy sleep the last two nights - slept 7 hours Friday night, and 5 hours last night. I suspect this won't last, but I enjoy it when it happens. I'm certainly learning to be more flexible about when I sleep. 

It's always fun in the morning, because he's usually in a good mood:
Not so great, however, if this is what he's doing at 5 am. I much prefer the 7 am wake-up. It's hard to be too upset when he thinks everything is hilarious, though!

July 26th...


Here is Baby Friday...on his first Saturday. Looking back now...wow is he getting big! Look how teeny and scrunchy he is!
