Dinner for Two and a Babysitter Too!

It's been some time since I've posted anything, but needless to say I've had my hands very full lately. Between taking care of myself following the c-section and taking care of Kate as her sole source of food, I've had little time for email, phone calls, sleep, TV and sometimes even warm meals. Kate's on-demand meals always come first.

My girlfriend did such a kind deed Tuesday evening, though, that I couldn't let it go unnoticed for too long. It's definitely a treat that should be shared with family and friends of other new parents who have the time and opportunity to pass on the same kindness. Christina stopped by with a homemade dinner for two and warm arms to hold dear Kate. While we ate some tasty, WARM food downstairs, Christina was giving Kate a cozy chest to sleep on upstairs.

I cannot even begin tell you how delicious dinner was. The spread included tortellini spinach soup, peppers and potatoes, muffins and cookies for dessert. Christina says we enjoyed it so much because we must've been hungry. In reality it probably was that as well as the fact that it was really very good and that Ken and I finally had some quiet time together. It may have only been a few minutes, but it felt like hours.

Hello! Boy, that soup sure does look yummy. I was wondering if we could perhaps have a recipe? When you have the time of course :) I’d also like to say that Kate looks very beautiful and healthy. Way to go guys. Congratulations! Posted by: Nuvia at October 16, 2003 04:10 PM
I love reading and keeping up with how things are going. Kate is beautiful!!! Keep up the good work. If you can, stick with the breastfeeding thing. I did it for both kids for a year and was glad I did. The first few weeks make it seem really hard. If you can get past a month it gets easy and no bottles to warm. Anyway reading your log and seeing Kate's pictures is great. Thanks, Cary Posted by: Cary at October 16, 2003 09:58 PM
