Paternity Leave: Day 12

Today was Friday, which has always been one of my favorite days. So many possibilities and good times still ahead!

The outing for today was lunch at Blaze Pizza followed by Target, both of which are right next to each other in Pasadena. The A/C was busted at the pizza place, so we didn’t dawdle there long. Target had perfectly functional A/C, but they didn’t have what I was searching for. They did have a large number of cones guarding a very small area, however:

Ended up changing Sam’s diaper in the bathroom there, and she was NOT pleased with the experience! Heated up some milk and gave it to her on-the-move in the stroller as we went back out to the car. She calmed down enough en route that we continued shopping at the hardware store where the DID have what I was looking for, as well as a few other things that I wanted. Mmmm…tools… Anyways, a quick Starbucks stop and we were on our way back home!

She ended up napping for over an hour after returning home, so I was able to put away the tools and take care of various minor household chores like doing the dishes, etc. I also re-drew eyebrows on the dog.

So concerned!

A little while after Megs got home, her father came to visit Samantha for the first time! Flew in from Portland today and he’ll be around this weekend.

He was tired and had to get back to his hotel, so Megs and I went for our first dinner out just us and Sam. Went well enough, although Sammy got real fussy about half way through, so Megs and I took turns walking her around.

After dinner, we came home and I put a bow on her head to increase her cute factor by 5%.
