Weekend Freedom!

December 31, 2008

This past weekend, Alex & I celebrated our new-found ability to leave the house by going to the Seattle Aquarium (Saturday) and the Pacific Science Center (Sunday). Both were great activities because they were indoors (while the snow was melting, it wasn’t that nice a weekend) and they wiped Alex out. He took great naps both days.

A nap was particularly key to my Saturday plans. Molly hosted a baby shower for our friend Meredith on Saturday from 2-4. She needed me to watch the kids during the shower, and while I think I do OK as a father to one child at a time, I didn’t want to struggle with both kids in front of an audience.

Luckily for me, Alex obliged. Tired from his morning excitement at the aquarium, he went to sleep at 1:40 and woke up at 4:45, missing the entire baby shower. Whew!
