Baby's first airplane ride! We made it successfully and even scored an upgrade to first class, but it was only for one of us plus baby, and neither of us were willing to leave the other back in steerage. So we kindly gave back the upgrade...I'm hoping that karma will come back to us!
Today was the day I'd been dreading. Baby received his first set of immunizations (jabs for my UK viewers). He was so brave and only cried when she gave the initial injections, then he quieted right down. I was so proud of him!
S and I decided it had been way too long since we'd played Scrabble, so we got out the board. We started a game on Saturday but ditched it as we ended up going to the concert instead. So we started again. And guess who played EYESORES for a 50 point bonus as his very first move? Needless to say, I did not win!
After a day spent out of the heat, inside with the air conditioning, we decided at the last minute to check out a free concert on the green. The New Haven Symphony Orchestra played. It was a nice evening.
We took an impromptu road trip up north to a seminary that housed a Catholic bookstore. I was hoping to get a baptism gown for Anand's baptism next month, but they didn't have any. Still, it was a nice trip and the seminary was beautiful.
Meghan's mom and I met a few months back when we were both pregnant and going to prenatal exercise class. Meghan was due on June 4 and Anand was due June 20, but in the end, they were born only two days apart! Here they are at our moms' group.
We motivated and got out to the Yale Center for British Art today. I had wanted to see an exhibit they've got up of British Transport posters. I have a few of them up in our apartment. It was a good exhibit and baby was generally well-behaved, although we did need to take him out so I could feed him at one point. But all in all, a good day.
I was generally able to avoid pregnancy brain. Mommy brain, not so much. This morning, I was going to make some pancakes for S from the leftover batter. I poured what I thought was the batter on the griddle, and it started separating and looked very oily. Generally not nice at all. So we got rid of it. Then much later, we found what was actually the batter in the fridge. What was it that I had tried to fry? Salad dressing.
