First babysitter!

First big news! I'm blogging from my new computer. It is SUPER awesome and fast and I love it. My old computer was also awesome, but it had reached the end of it's life. Aaron built it for me over 5 years ago - and it had started dying a slow, painful death. Now, I have a new, speedy wonderful machine! I've been upgraded to Vista though. We'll see how well I adapt to change.

Yesterday, Suzanne came over for what I've come to call a 'Hulk viewing'. People pretend they are coming to hang out with Aaron and I - but it's a big lie. They just want to hold the baby. I totally understand! Aaron convinced me to go with him to get lunch - and I left the house without Hulk for the first time. Ever. Well, I did go get a massage last week, but he was with Aaron. Suzanne was the first non-family member to be alone with him....but then, Suzanne is pretty much family, so I guess it really wasn't a big deal. Anyway - here is the documentation.

We first got home, Hulk was a bit upset. Suzanne was left with the task of feeding him a bottle, and Hulk had tricked her into thinking he was done after 2 ozs (he usually eats 5 or 6).

Suzanne is a pretty 'baby smart' gal - she told me - "He ate, we changed his diaper.... but he won't stop crying!'. Then she showed me the bottle, and I said - oh - you have to wake him up to eat more!

After he really ate what he needed:

And after a few hours of watching him sleep, even Suzanne admitted that sometimes just staring at a cute baby isn't enough entertainment, and she pulled out her knitting:

It was a fun day for both of us - she got to see her godson, and I got some time to just sit and relax and talk to my friend.

Awww he is so sweet! Glad you got some time out and all went well! I've had Vista for a long time, now and I really like it. I hope you enjoy it, too.

I'm super impressed that you guys got out. It took P and I forever (3 months), even though we were leaving him with my MIL. We *definitely* should have done it sooner.

Hulk is gorgeous!
