Paternity Leave: Day 29

September 2, 2014

It’s 4:45 a.m. I’ve been sleeping since 8 p.m., so I guess I was tired! I wonder if I might have some kind of intestinal parasite, cuz I’ve been losing weight and I’m tired a lot. Also, I’ve been waking up with stomach discomfort more often than usual. I further wonder if Samantha has the same thing, as her symptoms are similar: slower-than-we-would-like weight gain, stomach discomfort, etc. Idle thoughts. I plan on calling the pediatrician’s office later today.

In what-we-did-today news, Megan, Samantha, and I all went down to Uncle John’s house in Long Beach to have a Labor Day BBQ with John and dad. We had chicken, salad, and Spanish rice, all of which were excellent. We also had a nice time watching Sammy on her little play mat thing that we brought with us. I spent a few minutes trying to get a Verizon modem to act like a bridge, but it wasn’t being very cooperative, despite my serious attempts:

Oh well. I was more successful at calming Samantha down, but only just.

We said our goodbyes and headed back home to Pasadena around 5:30. Got home, took a nap, helped with the baby a bit, then went to bed. See paragraph one for more on that one.
