Last weekend, we were feeling a little restless and wanted to get out of the city. I was hoping to see some fall foliage (it was Columbus Day weekend after all — oh, how I miss New England), so we decided to take a day trip up north, driving Chuckanut Drive to Fairhaven.
In addition to the joy of William and a visit from an old friend, we have had a lot of good things pouring in over the last seven weeks. It has been amazing to have so much support from our friends, family, co-workers, golf buddies, neighbors… the list goes on.
We’ve had newborn diapers delivered to our doorstep; loads of laundry done in a matter of hours; blueberry pancakes made from scratch; generous gifts sent our way; messages of support from our east coasters; and so much more.
Everyone told us to accept help when we had a baby. We did it. And we’re loving it.
A few people have asked me questions like, “Is William a happy baby? What’s his temperament like? Is he an easy baby? What does he like to do?”
These are hard questions for me to answer because I didn’t exactly hang out with a bunch of babies prior to W.
My life changed dramatically in August of this year. We welcomed a baby boy into the world. And, as the saying goes, our lives will never be the same.
Febbie came to visit last weekend. It was wonderful to have her in Seattle, and I loved sharing little William with her. We ate at some delicious Seattle establishments, caught up for hours, and reminisced about our footloose and fancy free days in Seattle (ah, to be 22 again).
