lots of goings on in the past week. here’s the reader’s digest version, in no particular order. fully annotated and uncondensed version may arrive later. maybe not. initial pictures here.
besides not eating, not sleeping, and generally disliking being in his car seat, Caleb traveled quite well. he didnt quite scream…more like sqeaking, which turned into crying. the trip to NC usually takes 7.5 hours. it took us 10 to get there and 9 to come back. not too bad, but not great.
katie was, once again, a superpup. my parents have a “no dogs” policy (my dad is allergic), but an exception was granted for our tiny non-shedding woocher. she did great, and my dad spoiled her, even tho he cant pet her.
as usual, there were many presents spread around. for us big kids, lots of music, games, clothes, and candy/cookies/tea. for the little one, lots of toys and clothes and books (no candy yet). many thanks to all the givers. I think we need to declare a moratorium on toys for a while, as he’s received lots of cool toys that will suit him this time next year and the even the next.
Caleb was the pride and joy of both grandma and grandpa w. he got to tour both of their workplaces, where they were all aglow with the excitement of showing off the cutest kid on record. if we had a nickel for each time we heard “so this is the boy from all the pictures…”
today is my 28th birthday. so far I’ve enjoyed a good morning with my son, had a nice breakfast with my wife, and opened some presents (one each from the music/games/clothes/candy categories). some old friends will stop by later, and otherwise I think we’ll enjoy a nice day home together.
