Today was a great day. We were coming off of a great date night at Trapp Door Gastropub. It had amazing food, great beer and a very cool vibe. Declan also went down easy for my mom! Huge bonus. Josh had a softball game this morning and after he got back we just puttered around. I made some baby food and we just enjoyed our time together. Around noon we loaded up and ventured into the unbearable heat to pick up his mom and cousin and visit Lansdale. We stopped by Boardroom Spirits for the first time and checked out a dog adoption drive with my dad and stepmom. Despite the overwhelming cuteness of a certain Corgi mix, we left without a new pet. After Boardroom we went to Round Guys Brewery for lunch. It was delicious! Last time I was there they didn't really have food so it was such a nice surprise!
For dinner we headed over Karen's and had such a nice night with family.
Sometimes I can get so caught up in the day to day of raising a baby that it's hard to just stop and appreciate a day like today. Yes it was crazy hot and yes my son was cranky at moments but to just sit around with nowhere to go with the people you love is such an awesome blessing.
Huge bonus of the evening: Declan climbed a step all by himself! Totally insane.
UPDATE: right after making this post about our perfect, amazing day, Declan woke up and took 3 HOURS to go back to sleep. It was like when we first brought him home and it was really tough! Just thought I'd keep it honest and humble over here ...
