triple o's

after a day not leaving the house, i suggested going to triple o's for dinner when tim got home. but you know, babies are unpredictable. after he had a bottle, instead of feeling happily fed, we strapped a screaming ben into his carseat and got him in the car. he likes car rides so he was calm on the way and even for the first two minutes in triple o's. i took him out of his seat when he started wailing but he was happy in my arms for half a burger. the second half of the burger, he wanted me to stand up and rock him so i ate while standing. there was only one other person in the place and he looked over at us wen ben was crying and said, "that doesn't bother me." so that was nice. but food was eaten in a place other than a home and that was really the goal.

Looking at all of these beautiful photos of your baby, it's hard to imagine a "screaming" Ben...; however, I guess you wouldn't take pictures of him crying, eh?

It's too bad that babies don't have a better way of communicating leaving the adults trying to figure out what's wrong, if anything?

As you get to know this little guy better, you'll be able to interpret those "cries" I'm sure. It's only been such a short time of having him around!?

I have really appreciated your keeping us up to date with your Blog, etc. It's made it seem that we are all on this journey with you.
