Little things from this weekLast Sunday we visited Lee and Randy and had a good time playing with Link and Alissa. Our car broke down on the way out of town, but it was ok because it gave us a chance to visit Shannon's former neighbor, Patches, while Shannon's mom picked us up and brought us home.
On Wednesday I saw Inglourious Basterds with a friend from our home birth group while our wives stayed at home with the babies. How masculine of us. The movie was good. I was expecting it to be even more violent than it was, so I was actually relieved and able to just enjoy the story after a while.
Today we went to the Moores' for Shannon to take Trent's senior photos. We hung out and played with the kids and had yummy stromboli.
Very tired for some reason. It's odd because we kind of slept in. Link is cute as always, sitting next to me cooing at toys.

Two nights outHad dinner at Jason and Sadie's, fellow new parents whose beautiful daughter was born earlier this month. She's half Link's size and he's maybe 6 weeks older than she is.
We brought sushi and brownies with ice cream and they were a big hit. We had fun talking about our wide-eyed new experiences and all that good stuff. Had some good Irish whiskey, too.
Last night was a good night out too. We saw Julie & Julia at the cinema and I liked it a lot. Link was good the whole time, and even watched part of the movie with seeming interest. I'm going to see Inglourious Basterds without the family, but possibly with Jason.

weekend awayWent to Shannon's retreat last weekend on the other side of Des Moines. Link was really good on most of the car ride and really the whole weekend. And of course everyone loved him.
We also got to spend the night at Dustin and Vahida's house and spend some time with Link's cousin Diana, who is about five months older than he is.
Yesterday was the first day Link was fussy for an extended period. Something was bothering him but I don't know what. And it wasn't all day, but it was intermittent enough that it disrupted everything we were trying to get done. Bleh. Today will be better I think.
