Peter and I never had date nights before Owen was born. Frankly, we’ve never even been on a date. I’ve always resented that. With a new baby it’s also time to start some new traditions. I want to celebrate more things, big and small, because life is worth celebrating. With tomorrow/Friday off, we went out to dinner to celebrate the end of my first week back to work. It was an easy start to work from home but a start nonetheless. I need all encouragement I can get to brace myself for next week!
Baby Owen got to sit on a high chair in a restaurant for the first time and used a sippie cup for expressed milk. He was eager to try new things as usual. I hope he’ll always keep his sense of wonder and excitement.
