i wonder how long tuesdays will have such significance to me. because three weeks ago today, i had just had a baby and i was having visitors at the hospital. ben's face was swollen and he was wearing a funny little blue hat. today he's bigger, he holds his head up much better, and sometimes he smiles at me. he doesn't yet mind being passed from person to person. he has spent time in white rock, langley, and even made a trip to hope this weekend for tim's aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary party. we spend all day together on the couch and i take pictures of ben sleeping. he likes bathtime and having his diaper changed. sometimes when he's crying and i can't figure out what to do, i put him on the changetable and we just hang out there for awhile simply for some peace. we're figuring out how to lessen the gas build up so that there seems to be less fussy times. but of course because i have the guts to say that we're "figuring" something out, it will change tomorrow. :) that seems to be how babies work. ben and i had our first outing today to starbucks to hang out with my friend sally and it worked out great. maybe we'll go out again sometime.
