The best thing about today is my Dad went home from the hospital! I am so happy about this! I know my Dad will be better off in his own home, and I'm glad for him that he was able to leave the cancer ward today. I'm hoping for the best with his continuing recovery from this major surgery!

Today was a busy day! Samuel and I went to two different playgroups--both in NW Portland. We left at 10:15am, and didn't get home until 4pm. So, we were gone all day visiting with other Moms & babies. We had a nice day together. Samuel is learning so much now every day. He is very alert and has different cries to signify different needs. He is vocalizing a lot now, and making sounds like eeeeee oooooo uuuuuu. He is drawing out vowel sounds and making different shapes with his mouth. He likes laying on the play-mat, and is demanding more and more visual stimulation than he did before. He enjoys laying in his crib and looking at the different colors on the mobile, bedding, and the animals. He still loves his froggy above his changing table best of all, and never ceases to coo and smile at it whenever we change him. Landon has been taking him from 7-8am each morning while he is getting ready for work, and Samuel tends to be in a good mood during this time, and I'm able to stretch out in bed and sleep soundly for an hour each morning. Samuel is growing fast, and is already 9 1/2 weeks old. We're enjoying every minute, but they go by so fast!
