getting out

In the past few days we have managed to get out of the house, and it has made a world of difference in my mood. I was feeling really cooped up, and had a serious case of cabin fever. So on Tues and Wed we hung out at the hospital with my friend Holly, whose father is recovering from a heart attack (he's got a long way to go, prayers are welcome). Although circumstances weren't the best (who really wants to hang in the ICU lobby?), I had fun. I got to see people, show off my baby, and practice nursing in public. Gerald was happy because he was constantly rocked and snuggled.

And last night we went out to dinner! Gerald slept the whole time, we timed it just right, so we were able to enjoy dinner and even get some work done around the house before he woke up. It was so nice.

I feel like a human again :)

Here's the boy wonder in his super-huge sweatsuit. He's really trying to emulate Flavor Flav here, but it's hard when your clothes come from The Children's Place, and you have no teeth, and therefore no grill.

Glad to hear you got to get out, I know the first few weeks are rough and you crave contact with the real world:)

He is so cute and looks so tiny. It is definitely important to remember to get out of the house and socialize. Glad to hear you and Jocko got to go to dinner as well!!

I went to the Parenthood wed site to see what the name Gerald Eugene meant. Your boy wonder shall now be known as the Spear warrior born lucky.
