I’m going to make a new attempt at keeping up daily journal-style posts, prompted by this post.
Visited colleagues at the office. Seems that they miss me; there was some disappointment when I reminded them that I won’t be back until mid-May.
I visited once before, I think Adrian was maybe a month old then. There’s a lot more of him to show off now: he smiles and looks at people and all that. He was at his best behaviour, he really liked having all that crowd around him. The crowd admired his funky Stokke Xplory stroller and watched with bafflement as I put him to sleep in a sling.
He barely slept all day, 20 minutes on the way home from nursery in the morning, 30 minutes in the sling at home, 30 minutes in the sling at the office, and then 15 minutes on the way home from nursery in the afternoon. So exhausted was he that he fell asleep for the night at a quarter to six.
In the evening Ingrid watched me play Plants vs. Zombies on the iPad. She apparently found it really exciting, commented, shouted out warnings when new bucket-wearing zombies appeared, had opinions on my choice of plants etc.
Adrian’s bedtime totally collided with dinner-preparing time, so we had leftover curry with noodles.
